Yeah, you read it right! What the hell – I’m only about 13 weeks behind with this project. Never mind bringing it up to speed: what about skipping forward twenty-six weeks or so?
Why not? Just because, hey, it’s a hella fun project and I can’t wait 26 weeks to get on it!
So, the main task for the chapter, lemme quote: ‘DESIGN A TAROT CARD’.
Yeah? Pretty cool? Here’s what I came up with, ta-da….. drum-roll…
The Bookstore Clerk! AKA Kali, (Hipster) Goddess of Destruction! (My own personal role model!)
(BTW it is Kali, right? Not Shiva? Hang on a mo… Yeah. Woah, yeah. That’s me. *nods* Mother Kali.)
Aw, gosh-darn. You don’t need to tell me my drawing chops need work. Dammit, I used to be able to get a likeness at least, I wasn’t awful. See, use it or lose it. Gotta practice. Think I will have another try drawing her digitally. Those are attempts at books and pens in her hands, although you might never know it!
Yep, she has three pairs of arms – or I tried to give her the appearance of them, at least. And I like the font: it’s got that old-skool hand-printed library-ticket vibe. She needs extra arms, for stamping all of those books with her old-skool library stamp. (Which I also tried to draw. THAT’S NOT A RAMPANT RABBIT! It’s a library stamp. Granted, possibly not one that would hold together structurally, but that’s the intent.)
Kali’s got a Scooby-Doo Velma vibe, right? More than I intended. She may evolve in further iterations. I think a monochrome card and a slinkier goddess of the bookstacks is possibly in order.
Practice, practice, practice. PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE!
