SHADES & SHAPES
SHADES & SHAPES:
i made these cards in 1994 as an art project. they seem to be a psycological rather than
fortune telling tool. i was chatting to xaotica on AIM a couple of
weeks back and her tattoo jogged my memory, so next time i visited my folks
i went into the loft and dug them out.
the spread is not entirely correct as two or even three(!) of the same card
can be loaded at once, but i suppose this could a feature rather than a problem.
also, i'm afraid the red and orange cards are hard to tell apart on a vdu, i'll
get round to making them more discernable at some point.
