I’m starting my Tarot project with these two. It’s off to a weirdly appropriate start. I am starting with the Trump cards. I wanted to get The Fool (0) out of the way first, but I was working on the templates for the frame, illustrating the suit motifs, and handwriting the cards at the same time so… that one’s going through another draft. I made a bunch of rookie mistakes, and since I’m burned out on card 0, I’m redoing that one at the end of the Trumps. 

Anyway, here are the low-res images of the Magician (I) and the High Priestess (II).

takealefthere said: Will you be selling these? Because I’d buy them in am absolute heartbeat.

I’ll also be making the illustrations individually available as separate prints as I finish the cards before the deck is complete. And I do intend on making a complete deck with a box to keep them in eventually, if you’re wondering. :)

The Wallet Ninja

It seems like the only thing you can’t do with this little helper.. is paying!

BUT aside from this it offers so much more functionality than a credit card. It has the same size as a credit card, so you can easily put it inside your wallet. There’s six Hex wrenches, a can opener, fruit peeler, bottle opener, ruler (standard & metric), letter opener, box opener, phone stand, and eyeglasses, Philips and flathead screwdrivers. It’s made from 4x heat treated steel, and comes with a lifetime guarantee to never rust, bend, dull, or fold up like Circuit City.

GET your own Wallet Ninja ($14.99)

hi [name of person], 

this formatting is making me uncomfortable but I have to tell you something / ask you something that is vital to my career as a student. 

I re-read and edited that sentence for an hour, but you’ll probably just glance over it for half a second.

thanks!

The work of Olga Protasova

Ukraine graphic designer Olga Protasova has created a series of lettering works using plasticine. 

Olga explains that plasticine is the perfect material to exploring new possible ways to combine the medium with typography and letter construction—most of her designs are featured on corporate promotional cards and posters, while some are made with the intentions of adding joy into her life, as well as others.

Peruvian nurse cares for 175 sick cats

At her job, Maria Torero cares for sick human beings. At home, she lavishes love on slowly dying cats — 175 of them at last count.

The 45-year-old nurse has turned her two-story, eight-room apartment into a hospice for cats with feline leukemia, scattering it with scores of feeding dishes and at least two dozen boxes litter boxes.

Some have suggested she shelter healthy cats instead. “That’s not my role,” she told The Associated Press. “I’m a nurse. My duty is to the cats that nobody cares about.” She said that “people don’t adopt adult cats, especially if they are terminally ill.”
