Henry ChaplinGeneral Internet Alias:
KaracolArtwork Choice for publication:
Two of Cups from his Karacol Tarot Deck Location:
San Diego, California
Henry who is 26 years old has read tarot since he was a teenager, and had long been interested in creating his own deck. The Karacol Tarot was born in a fit of inspiration after a six months living and meditating in Spain. The deck takes its name from the Spanish word caracol. It refers to spirals, swirling motion and a triple-spiral staircase in Santiago de la Compostela -- things he loves and a place where he drew much inspiration. The art interprets tarot archetypes in a personal way, which essentially makes the deck a private diary accessible to everyone. Creating the deck has been and continues to be a rewarding journey. His goal is to find out where the journey leads and create a deck that hopefully will provide others great readings and inspiration.True Name:

Ace of Swords from her HP Tarot Location:
Elly regularly will do readings both for herself and for close friends, but she explains to people beforehand that she is not a medium. Her belief is that the archetypal images of the cards will allow your subconscious to communicate solutions to problems that it has already worked out, but that your conscious mind is still struggling with. For many years she has harbored the secret ambition to design and draw her own deck, and finally has plucked up the courage to do so. True Name:
