ART TO CELEBRATE MAN
by Chris Butler
Art and Tarot may seem like strange bedfellows but the cards have been one of the underpinning inspirations for Chris Butler’s illustration work. He’s the illustrator of five published Tarot /Divination decks and the author of three books on the subject.
The Son Tarot, published by Schiffer Books is the culmination of several years work and self searching. Chris drew heavily on his own coming out experiences but The Son Tarot is also about exploring and celebrating who we are. As men we come in all shapes and sizes and regardless of what we (or others) may think, our masculinity is powerful and profound. The Son Tarot is about daring to be male and proud. Chris’s hope is that men will use these cards as a mirror to their own souls. They may even find the strength of their own refections quite astonishing. Check out Chris’s web site for purchasing links and for further details.
As an artist, Chris’s other great passion is to celebrate the male face and form. His drawings and paintings have found themselves on walls or in collections as far afield as the United States, Italy and Australia as well as in the UK.
If you would like to commission Chris for a portrait or a work of intimate/erotic art, or if you would like to purchase any of his existing work, drop him a line via his web site, mentioning ‘Men In Touch’ as your contact point.
