Are you a professional illustrator or artist? If so, we’d love to connect with you!

Llewellyn is known for our wonderful tarot decks, and great art is part of what makes them so wonderful. Our authors create concepts and card descriptions, and Llewellyn finds the right artists to bring these decks to life. Have you ever considered being a part of a tarot deck project? Or, if not, perhaps now is the time to do so!

Making a tarot deck is a big job, requiring 79 illustrations (78 cards and the card back). Our decks usually require full scenes (rather than portraits or vignettes). It is also a long-term commitment; most artists take 18 – 24 months to complete a deck. But, being the artist of a tarot deck can be an immensely powerful and rewarding experience! (Note that artists retain the copyright to their work.)

We love it when artists have print experience, show consistency in style, and are able to provide high quality digital files (Photoshop files are preferred).

If you are interested in being considered for a tarot project, please send the link to your digital portfolio to (please do not send attachments or pictures).

Please note that, while we do review each and every portfolio that we receive, we unfortunately are not able to provide a reply to every portfolio submitted. We also keep all submissions on file to consider for future projects.

We look forward to hearing from you and seeing your portfolios!
