A Six Card Spread


For our final design project I’ve chosen a story from the Lucifer graphic novel series. Featuring a tarot deck called the Basanos that has full autonomy and no morals, the cards escape their confinement and go forth to terrorise the world. Starting in Hamburg where they try to find a host body. They find Jill Presto, a struggling performer and promise her everything she’s ever wanted. There’s more to the contract than she knows, but it’s too late.

To show the Basanos’ control over time, I chose to portray them through their various archetypes. They all represent a very specific set of character traits and people, I researched people throughout history that display these traits and gathered them together in constantly shifting costumes.
