My first etsy purchase and it did not disappoint! Order arrived quickly and as described, snug fit for my tarot deck (After Tarot) that I know they'll be well protected and the color (Green) perfectly brings out the backing of my deck. Overall, it's quite a lovely crafted tarot bag, I can tell a lot of care went into making it and the extra Thank You message that came along with the parcel from the maker is an extension of that kindness. Highly recommend! If I get any future decks, I'll def be returning :)

About

I'm an artist. It's what I do.

I once asked a friend an iffy question: "Define me in one word." Without missing a beat, she said "Artist. That's your word. That's you."

I can't really argue. Art has always been and, I hope, always will be my passion. Whether I'm drawing comics, writing stories, designing graphics, or sewing something, I am nearly always in the process of creating *something*. My creative process is a bit disorderly - I bounce randomly from one project to the next - but I'm always in the middle of something!

The thing I keep coming back to, though, is drawing comics. I've been fascinated by sequential art of all kinds since I was a little kid, drawing for highly-esteemed publishing house "KC Kid Comix" when I was 8 - it was me, my brother, and our neighbor, all scribbling out makeshift comic books in the basement. Fast forward twenty years, and here I am, finally creating something I'm willing to share with the world.

I draw comics based on the human experience of relating to one another and the world around us, but the structure of each is generally a 30-page black-and-white manga-inspired comic built around the lyrics of a song. My first recent comic, "You Are In Love," is based on a song by Taylor Swift (and Jack Antonoff); the one currently in progress is based on "The Cheyenne Line" by The Ataris. You can buy "You Are In Love" in my shop for $7, and I'll even sign it for you!

However, I'm always simultaneously working on other projects. I sew small Tarot bags, some of them embroidered. I'm hoping to start doing some one-off color prints. And long-term, I'm working on an original full Tarot deck called the Millennial Mystic Tarot. It's probably going to be published in late 2018 or sometime in 2019. Updates will be posted on my Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/JulianJaymesArt).

Please have a look around, and feel free to email me with any questions: julianjaymes89 [!at] gmail.com !

Frequently asked questions

Autographed items

I can sign and personalize your copy of the comic (if you buy the physical version) if you would like! Just let me know who to make it out to, and if you would like me to write anything specific. I do NOT do sketches or doodles on my manga; you'd need to commission me separately if you want a sketch/doodle.

Gift wrapping and packaging

I can gift wrap items in a limited choice of wrapping paper and/or tissue paper and ribbon! Just contact me with any questions about colors, patterns, and so on.
