Is this your card?
Then again, sometimes I don’t mind a bit when BoingBoing shamelessly plugs products. These are sweet!
Please, please tell me this isn’t a new art “movement.” It gives me a headache.
This art movement is as old as printing industry is.
That’s… what is that thing? Is it the purple hallucination or something?
Looks to me like the Ace of Frankenflowers.
I guess I spent too many years doing prepress in a commercial print shop. I look at the art, and all I think is “something went wrong in prepress and the press operator wasn’t paying attention, I hope there’s enough paper to finish the job”.
Me too! I Still like it though.
With all the images being public domain now, could be fun to make a set at one of those custom playing card printing websites.
Puts it on the TODO list
You could also take a shot at a variant of the Silicon Valley Tarot. With clouds as one of the suites.
I was involved in a tarot project a few years back, creating a one-off deck from scratch and loading it with as much symbolism, obscure occult references and in-jokes as possible. Fun and there was some amazing design work, but it turned out that getting a single deck printed, coated, finished and cut to a specific size is surprisingly expensive.
When it’s done on paper it’s an intentional misprint, not a glitch.
