The seven paintings of the Tarot Series were created for Burton Snowboards with their design firm Jager Dipaola Kemp in the summer of 1998. The paintings are based on Alestair Crowley’s Thoth Tarot Deck. Seven cards were provided as inspiration. The deck is, overall, very dark in it’s imagery. I sought to transform Crowley’s and Lady Frieda Harris’ interpretation of the Tarot into something lighter, more uplifting and all together more youthful. The paintings were featured on Burton’s Supermodel Snowboard.
The Aeon and one additional piece were painted seperately.
