Creative Roadmaps preview collage Nine Lives Tarot & Playing Card design

Creative Road Maps & New To-Do Lists

A visual roadmap showing different stages involved in a creative project can be a way of both organising thoughts and telling a kind of ‘behind the scenes’ story. What tools were used? How long did something take? What inspired the project in the first place? The visual road maps created for Nine Lives Tarot and VIZAĜO Playing Cards (recently updated) and Nine Lives Playing Cards are a great place to start if you are curious or want to find out more about my illustrated card decks.

Also, don’t miss out: To Do lists on special, with new designs just in :)

Hoping that 2021 proves to be a (much) better year compared to the one we’ve just left behind. While not all was bad about 2020, the year certainly threw spanners in the works, challenging people on so many levels. Hoping that we actually come out of this stronger and more inspired, here is a little round up of my latest creations – all available at Nine Lives Art.
