Siolo Thompson is a visual artist and author who employs multiple techniques and narrative forms, from traditional painting to comics and sequential illustration. Her work sits at the intersection of nature and magic, and she often draws inspiration from the beautiful, mossy Pacific Northwest that she calls home. She is the author-illustrator of Llewellyn’s best-selling Linestrider Tarot Deck, the Hedgewitch Botanical Deck, and Winterseer Animal Oracle, among others. For this issue, she shares her sketchbooks and travel notes from a pilgrimage to Ireland’s sixty-six round towers. When not off on adventure Thompson enjoys gardening, cooking, foraging, and all kinds of outdoor sports.
