Inspired by Eastern-European folk tales, the deck follows the hero’s journey from ”the child who does not want to be born” to ”the elder who makes peace with fate”, while the suits (cups, time, coins and swords) explore the contemporary meaning of achievement and happiness.

Conceived in the frame of a Comic Art Europe residency and grant, these illustrations are part of a larger project, which includes a live drawn concert. You can find out more about the meaning of the cards, discover preparatory sketches and get the full picture here.
