So I don’t think The Universe (hah!) wants me to create this damn deck.
Last night I had a hot bath and had very wonderful clear ideas for how I’d make the first 2 cards for a digital collage deck. When I got out I found some images to work with. But I’m stuck on my BF’s shitty laptop for now, he doesn’t have GIMP, I can’t seem to use Pixlr, I’m on 4G so I can’t download anything large, and my thumb drive is mysteriously and suddenly broken. Not to mention I just have a regular mouse… don’t get me wrong, I’ve had loads of success just using a mouse, so that wouldn’t slow me down. But still.
So fuck it. This is going to be the Hot Mess oracle (I blame Jack for the name).
So my process is going to be to practice each card on scrap paper, then draw it out on the actual card. It’ll be very thick and messy but that’ll have to work. I’ll consider that my working draft until I can complete a digital collage version of it.
So here’s my working list of card titles I want to start with (the others aren’t completely ironed out yet):
Today I plan on sketching out Innocence and Power. Who knows how this will go. I’m just hoping that, no matter how horrible my art is, I end up with something resembling the card meanings.
