Davezilla became in 2001 the first blogger to be sued by a billion-dollar company (he won). Because of this, there is a Davezilla Wikipedia page and Dave has the dubious distinction of being a verb in the Urban Dictionary. He's worked in advertising and illustration most of his life, but also at a think tank for General Motors, and did a brief stint at the Los Alamos National Laboratories, working on science projects he can’t discuss. He is a Gardnerian witch (initiated 1979), Discordian (hot dogs on Fridays), Ngangalero (initiated 1993), Santero (initiated 2006), and full-time illustrator. He prefers to paint occult, cryptid, alien, and other fringe topics. He has over forty years in occult/new age religions and thirty years of illustration experience.  As the executive vice-president of Campbell Ewald (2nd oldest ad agency in the US), he ran the entire digital department. Dave lives in Royal Oak, Michigan.

Discover How to Use Unexplained Phenomena as a Means to Divine the Future

We are living in strange times. The US Navy now admits that UFOs exist, ghost hunters abound, and experts in the paranormal and quantum physics fields are arriving at the same conclusion: all of these seemingly disparate phenomena are related. Strange times call for strange tools. Here you’ll find guidance to navigate urban oddities, the unexpected, the unexplained, and everyday strangeness.

Tarot of the Unexplained is designed to represent the most commonly seen and experienced unexplained phenomena: apparitions, Fortean phenomena, and cryptids. It incorporates these modern concerns as suits: Wands, Swords, Cups, and Pentacles become Sasquatch knocking sticks, Ghosts, Portals, and Flying Saucers. Pages have become Fans, Knights are now Hunters, Queens are Advocates, but Kings are Skeptics, and their role is to take a hard look at the situation and ensure you aren’t letting your imagination get the best of you.

This 78-card deck and 96-page full-color book embrace diversity and weirdness. We are not alone.
