|This is my humble attempt to
present Major Tom's Tarot to the World. I still remember my first encounter
with tarot cards as a child visiting my grandparents house on the beach in
California. I've wanted to design my own deck ever since. Major Tom's Tarot is
my attempt to realise that early ambition. The original concept was to use
people from my everyday life to portray the various characters in the deck. As
I've gone along, I've found that some of the people in my everyday life are
people I've only ever met on-line. Because tarot depicts archtypes, I've based
my designs primarily on the BOTA deck for the major arcana and the Rider Waite
deck for the minor arcana, although I've also been influenced by the Universal
Tarots by de Anglis, the Spiral Tarot, and the Robin Wood Tarot.
