Once Upon a Panda

Hey there, I’m Kim, the “panda” behind the “pandas” - a.k.a. the creator of Way of the Panda Tarot! I’ve loved and adored pandas all of my life. I mean, just look at them. All day every day, they munch on the crunch of bamboos. They roll around in the grass under the sunshine, and they get stuck in a tire. Then they sleep. And they’re always happy.

For me, pandas are more than just the hallmark of lazy. One of the major reasons why I wanted to create a panda themed tarot deck - other than pandas are just so uh, unbearably cute - is to capture the sweet, playful, introspective, and carefree nature of the panda spirit through the archetypes of tarot. We all need a bit more ease, a bit more peace - in this increasingly noisy and fast-paced world.

The Panda Philosophy

What exactly is the “way of the panda”? Is it Zen? Taoist? Read more about the panda as an animal totem and a motif for living a peaceful, meaningful life.

Meet the Artist

Meet the incredibly talented Celia - she’s the one helping me manifest my panda ideas into gorgeous watercolor!

 

I'm Celia, and I'm an illustrator from Barcelona. Since I was a child, my passion has been art. I spent most of my time drawing, even in the school, I drew everywhere (even when I didn't have a paper or notebook, I drew on the table).

I studied Fine Arts at UB (Barcelona University), majoring on illustration, and at the last course I realized that I didn't know what to do when I graduated. Finally I decided to continue studying... bakery! (that was just a hobby, but I thought, hey! why not?)

After spending two years of my life studying bakery, I had a revelation: I should have never left art! I discovered that art is and always will be my true passion, so I started drawing again, and little by little I think (and I hope) that I can make a living out of what I love the most: creating beauty.
