“One for Sorrow” Illustration Series

I made a set of illustrations based on the British nursery rhyme – One for Sorrow (Magpie)

As this nursery rhyme is often associated with superstition, I found the inspiration from tarot cards. Each illustration is designed in tarot card layout, and the mood also from more light and joyful to more sinister towards the end.
