Visual Artist | Cultural Alchemist
When Jonathan obsesses about a new project, he doesn't just commit to it, he packs a suitcase and moves into it. His last series, ALKAHEST, was created during eight hermetic months on the Greek island of Mykonos. Similarly, his time spent living and painting in NYC, Berlin, Paris, and now, Todos Santos, have shaped his unique filter through which his art is created. His paintings and sculptures are in private and commercial collections, and are exhibited internationally. His work is featured in the latest book by Juxtapoz Magazine "New Contemporary", on the 2012 album cover for Rudi Zygadlo's, "Tragicomedies", and on many curated art sites: (i.e. BOOOOOOOM, butdoesitfloat, iGNANT). A recent commission from the Denver Museum of Nature & Science allowed him to explore his interest in the shrouded and mysterious side of history, studying ancient Roman frescoes and scarab beetles, also expanding his love for the visual and energetic possibilities of crystals and minerals. Jonathan brings this enthusiasm and curiosity of aesthetics and metaphysics to the creation of his 79 paintings that will make up The Fountain Tarot. He also enjoys being forced to watch zombie movies with his partner and Coby.

Graphic Designer | Maker Muse | Artist
Andi is contemporary. Every facet of her creativity is embedded with fresh and rowdy now-ness. Her graphic design projects have taken her across the USA and into Europe: From her recent work with MSNBC in NYC for their coverage of "The Feast", to her designs for the "Belle Epoque" and "Bollywood" Galas of the American School of Paris. Other projects include, custom printed textile design for AWKWRD leggings; a Denver based fashion brand, DC Comics Batgirl frame prep, Moondog Farms Co-op branding, Illiterate Magazine, and her recent solo "Harmonographology" exhibition at Leon Gallery of her self-built harmonographs and the artwork produced by them. Her sense of style and design, utilized throughout The Fountain is not only influenced by her personal interest in the Tarot as an intuitive reader and seeker, but is also greatly informed by her own personal experience with modeling, makeup and styling for runway and many fashion presentations. Andi is a creative chameleon and a prolific maker who enjoys leather-working, word games, logic puzzles and drinking whiskey.
