More Bird People Tarot cards today. Over Easter celebrations, my sister was asking how many cards I have made already and how many are left to go.
Completed Tarot cards: 39
Uncompleted Tarot cards: 39
She also asked if I have any particular order I go in. That's also a great question. I go in order of what the images I look for in books and magazines take me.
In another life, when I worked at a certain toy company, I would do a lot of hunting and digging for art illustrations and resources that were already created by artists/illustrators that had been hired for our various books and magazines. If those artists/illustrators couldn't make new art for a game or animation we were working on, I'd have to go and look for art we already "owned" to use in the feature; to keep costs down and maintain continuity. That meant lots of hunting, pecking, scanning illustrations and doing a lot of art surgery to keep everything on brand. I really loved that part of the work I did (and all the animation I got to do) and I think about it a lot while I'm looking for the pieces of these tarot cards in all my old books and magazines. It's a long organic process that would probably give super organized people who love Excel hives, but that's creativity. Messy, time doesn't matter, complete disarray and complete chaos.
Nobody loves me
Relying on oneself
Plenty for all
