A mish-mash of artist, illustrator and designer. Fascinated by all things dark, whimsical and vintage her work is characterized by a collision of Victorian vignettes, rockabilly pin-ups, religious iconography, tattooing, 20th century circus and fairground lore, and a slight obsession with El Dia De Los Muertos.

    I should be working on my entry for the Sound Comp, but I needed a break. These always give me a sense of achievement – they’re so quick to create (sometimes)

    can you explain this one?(sorry to be a pain in the arse)

  • never a pain! Temperance is about the harmony and synthesis of opposing things. It’s a reminder to ‘temper’ our lives – that perhaps we need to heal something. Has a lot of similarities to Taoist teachings (if you’re into that sort of thing). This site is quite good for generic meanings

    This card is incredibly appropriate for the morning I have just encountered!
    I guess the tarot can be funny like that…
