Day: March 8, 2007


Day 209 of 365 days. I was really creative yesterday (and in fact, I thought it was an awesome shot, that didn’t get nearly as much attention as it deserved. I’m kinda pissed about it, actually, so go on ahead and check it out and leave me tons of comments and faves, dammit), so it…

Page of Cups

Page of Cups

The second completed Tarot Card in my series. Using a shot from the Theresa photoshoot that I thought was perfect for capturing the idea of the card.

I’m using spot color for all of the cup cards, and I really wanted to have a little more in them than appears here, but I feel its important to not overdo it, and the little splash of red wine seems to be perfect for this one.

Other themes of note here: All of my pages are going to be women. I’m considering changing it to the alternate name "Princess" but I like the sound of "Page" some how. Also, all of the pages will be wearing lingerie or bed clothes (as will all of the male knights). The cups, aside from B&W with color cutouts will also all be wearing rather casual or street clothing (i have other methods of dress in mind for other suits).

I also just realized a flaw in my design. I have the number of the card (Roman numeral for Major Arcana) in the upper left hand corner, but the kings and knights will both start with K. This is bad. Any suggestions for avoiding this are appreciated (I am considering Kn for knight).

If anyone has any suggestions or questions about other themes and ideas I have worked out so far, please comment and let me know… its a big job and all input is welcome.
