I’m starting a new service where I illustrate people’s dreams from last night.
From my friend:
Last night’s dream: I was an astronaut and was in Japan (which looked like a futuristic Glendale Mall). I bought a training manual and a sandwich, but hadn’t learned yen-to-dollars yet, so I paid $60 USD for the two. I still had my big poof of hair and had concerns about fitting it under my helmet. There was also something about a bear, and, towards the end, a conversation with a friend in New Orleans about his newborn. I can’t even begin to analyze that mess.
I happened to be looking on etsy.com for a daniel striped tiger hand puppet (don’t ask – I’ll get around to explaining it later) and stumbled on this really marvelous artist’s store – Little Robot – AKA Lindsey Carr.
I have to count my pennies before I buy any prints with the wedding coming up, but this is definitely going in my “to buy” wishlist, for sure.
Several years ago, I had my tarot cards read. This was before I knew much about what the Tarot was, and I didn’t realize there were many decks, etc. and different interpretations. Keep in mind that I’m a bit practically-minded and this is something I think is fun, but about on the same scale as playing with a Ouiji board or doing “light as a feather, stiff as a board” at slumber party.
The deck this person reading my tarot was using was, unbeknownst to me, The Alchemical Tarot illustrated by Robert M. Place, and it was a spectacular design, beautifully illustrated. Since then, I’ve had people read my Tarot, and seen other decks, but that original reading sticks in my mind because the artwork was so beautiful. Some of the other decks I’ve seen aren’t as appealing to my aesthetic.
