Background Information & Inspiration
I just took some general ideas from it like how some of the suits are interpreted, hearts are equivalent to the emotions; "glasses" in the original deck, that's why the King of Hearts has a "wine" glass in it's hand and so on. I treated Jacks as "servants" that's why they carry or handle objects; for example the Jack of Hearts carries a jar of wine, the Jack of Spades a scabbard. I added small bubble gum monsters on those cards that has a special feature or drawing in the Minor Arcanes of the Marseille Tarot's deck, like 2 of "Glasses" (Hearts), 4 of "Golds" (Diamonds).
I just had real fun interpreting those cards in a very banal and superficial way to give my deck an intricate aesthetic content.
