So our next project is "fictitious playing cards". we're starting out with making one card, but i want to make a few just to have a theme going. instead of doing the traditional french version that we use today (hearts, diamonds, clubs, spades) i'm going to do tarot cards. they're interesting and it will give me room to interpret whatever i want for the images. i think i'll stick with the original suits (cups, wands, pentacles, coins) and instead of jack queen king it will be page, knight, queen, king. There are a lot of sweet tarot cards and ive always loved the images illustrated by pamela coleman smith, the Rider-waite-smith deck. well, i'm gonna go get started.
