The Art of Darkness

The Most Horrifying Tarot Cards You’ll Ever See

March 22nd, 2016 by Cobwebs

Lisa Frank TarotThose of us who grew up in the 80s and 90s will recall the horror that was Lisa Frank: You couldn’t swing a cat without hitting a Trapper Keeper that Frank had vomited psychedelic rainbow unicorns all over.

Now, years later, when we thought we were free of the Lisa Frank scourge, artist Ariel Hart has brought the twee rainbow animals to tarot, and it is terrifying.

She’s done the entire Major Arcana, and even the most curmudgeonly amongst us will have to admit that her artistic choices are brilliant. If you were the kind of person who had a Lisa Frank poster hanging proudly in your bedroom (in which case, what are you doing reading this site?), these are the tarot cards for you. What better way to take the edge off a prediction of gloomy fate than with a grinning, denim-clad koala?

    We didn’t get Lisa Frank here in the UK, for which I am profoundly grateful.

    Pass the Eye Bleach please. I would love to have a Hell Raiser inspired Tarot deck.

    I will admit that I was attracted to Lisa Frank as a very young child (covers face in shame) but I certainly outgrew it quickly. These would be fun to buy and draw fangs and horns on everything you could and add Elder Ones in the background where appropriate…

    My evil plan has worked! The horror spreads like a plague!
