'Ishtar' - Heres the full look at my contribution to the ‘Tarot Under Oath' project (as most have already seen half of it on the show flyer!), the gallery show will be taking place at Last Rites Gallery in NYC on 25th January and a full colour art book which will be released later in the year.
The project is put together by author Russell J Moon and artist/author/curator Aunia Kahn and brings together some of their favorite artists from around the world to create their interpretations of the major arcana.
You can view more information about the project at the Tarot Under Oath website and when the works are properly released- also be able to see the works created by this impressive artist line-up!
'Ishtar' is my take on the wonderful 'Empress' card in the major arcana and focuses on some of the usually inverted aspects of the card- namely strength through adversity, overcoming obstacles by being yourself and to rise to meet lifes challenges. Obviously theres a whole load of other great aspects to the card.. i just wanted to portray an Empress that has kicked ass to get where she wants to be! (and of course theres links through the etymology of her name here as well but im not going into that here ; ) )
The piece is a digital painting on cotton rag stock, mounted on board, varnished and framed. 10x15” / 15x20” framed (approx) and will be available via Last Rites Gallery.

Just a quick shout out to everyone who has been supporting my work this year, all those likes, reposts, retweets, regrams, comments and follows on the social networks- not to mention all of the wonderful people out there who buy the prints and show works.. it really is appreciated and enables me to keep doing what i love!
As its the holiday season and as a way of saying thanks for all of those people who follow and support my work, i am giving away a one off version of my ‘Holiday Cheer’ piece.
The original print sold out within 24hrs so theres probably a few who may be after this one- its a slightly larger 10x12” (excluding the frame) hand embellished piece, mounted on board, varnished and framed. It also comes with a COA and will be shipped worldwide to the lucky winner!
All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning this piece is to sign up for the newsletter, either from the mostlywanted portfolio site or from the shop. Closing date to sign up is 1st January and the winner will be picked at random from the mailing list on the 2nd.
'Holiday Cheer' - Couldnt resist doing a little Krampus piece this year! (go do a search if you dont know who he is or the history behind the character!) Hes 10x12” on cotton rag stock, limited edition of 10 and available from the mostlywanted shop.
