Over the past couple of months, The Mortal Instruments / The Infernal Devices fans have been treated to the sight of the amazing art work of Cassandra Jean, including her Shadwhunter-inspired Tarot Cards.
Cassandra as revealed that, thanks to a colaboration with Cassandra Jean, every day for the next 84 days she will be sharing the complete deck, which Jean has now completed, in order.
“Cassandra Jean has finished the complete Shadowhunter Tarot, so for the next … eighty-four? days I’ll be posting a card a day in order, from the first card to the last. Some will be under spoiler cuts; some you’ll have seen before — I’ll explain why each character has the card they have.”
Tarot Card #8-9 Mark Blackthorn and Jace Herondale
“Today I’m actually posting two because I’m trying to catch up, and also because you’ve seen these before! Mark Blackthorn of the Dark Artifices takes the Chariot card, here called the Changeling. Mark has fey blood like his sister Aline, both of whom you’ll see in City of Heavenly Fire. He’s carrying a kind of bow and arrow known in mythology as an elf-arrow or elf-bolt.
Jace takes the strength card, here represented as the Angel because of the angel blood in his veins. And because that Angel blood gives him unusual strength. As for why he’s shirtless…
Me: Why did you draw him shirtless?
CJ: I like him that way.
Me: Good enough.”
