Several people have suggested a thread for identifying members' avatars.  Well, what the heck.  Here's a thread.  I hope this is the right place for it.

I think "guessing" is in order, however.

OK.
So how do we go about guessing?
Is there some kind of order involved?
Do people line up to guess?
Or to be guessed?
Or should we just shout out?
And, are there PRIZES...?

Cripes. I hope you're not asking ME.
:?

The answers to all your questions are yes, until something more organized happens.  Yes.

I think we should just SHOUT OUT the answers until the Contest Committee is formed. 

They might want to specify prizes, too....to be awarded by, um, er, the nonexistent Prize Committee.

Mine is from an actual Tarot Deck, but it had a rather limited run.  One. :D

The Oxnyx Tarot.  3 of wands is the image on my avatar.

Hey, what happened to guessing???

I suppose Debra's is Nigel Jackson's Fortuna's Wheel's World.

Ok, then. That's four possessives in one sentence.

So, if someone can explain mine, I'll send them a prize.

And if you are particularly specific, I'll sweeten the deal...

:cool:

Yikes, not that sweet!
But you do know how to pick them.

Ok, how about this:
If you guess what the prize is, I'll tell you the avatar.

It's a King of Coins, I believe, for a new deck, possibly a collaborative one.  The artist is Bill.

And yes, my avatar is from Fortuna's Wheel. This is a lovely 22-card deck. The colors are quite beautifully shaded, the renderings are amusing, the composition is pleasing, and the production values are terrific.  Yay.

Also, I look exactly like this in real life.

Almost was used for a king of coins, for a current collaborative that seems sort of nearly forgotten these days.
But that's weather in his hand, not a coin.

It's not from a deck.
And yes, Bill cut the woodblock, half a lifetime ago.

So, you're pretty close to winning.
If you stop now, you get the basic prize.
If you can identify it better, you get the sweet version...

So...?
(Or anyone else...?)

Good grief.

Well, perhaps it has something to do with typhoons or hurricanes.

Hint would be nice.

Well, I SAID you can stop here, and take the basic prize,
or go on and try for the extra good version.

WHOSE midnight, one wonders?


The hour's now come;
The very minute bids thee ope thine ear;
Obey and be attentive.

So of course I listened-- to Papageno!  Perhaps...this island-bound fella is from The Tempest?

And although I felt that I should NOT take advantage of this insight:
Come, follow. Speak not for him
Papageno told me to Go for It

The little man on the island, Prospero from The Tempest by Shakespeare.

Hey, if that turns out to be correct, I must admit that I could not have guessed it without debra's groundwork. So in that case, I cede the prize to her.

(And if it's wrong, all three of us can share in the wrongness.)

Yes, Prospero & The Tempest it is!
From a cover designed for an Offset Lithography class project.

Since all three of you collaborated, more or less, I think three prizes should be awarded...

Ahclem, debra, and papageno can all pm me with a mailing address.

This contest is now officially closed!
Thank you to the participants!

Ok, by special request....
The source of my current avatar....

As I said, this was done for an Offset Lithography class at Cooper Union, circa 1983.
I cut & printed the woodblock, then it was shot as a halftone & offset printed as part of a book cover design.

I like everything about it....the gentle way he handles the storm, the black/white balance, the tension between movement and stillness, and the sweet stoutness of the magician himself, with his under-eye circles and his little ankle bones!

I've always been old.

Here's the source. It's a Japanese banner I cut into three pieces and hung from a bamboo pole. Astute viewers will note it is backwards.

[The main artwork is by Susan Woldman from her Relationship Cards]

I was going to post this as my new avatar but didn't want to die from a lightning bolt.

I am however going to be in BIG trouble when New York wakes up.

Wow, isn't that great??!! I also have her Contemplation Cards which is another 54-card deck, created a bit earlier than the Relationship Cards.

I found her artwork very fresh and lively. I bought the decks, and have been using them for 6 weeks or so to draw a daily card by the computer. I find that  pulling a single card like that is a good way to connect to a new deck.

I was looking at the member's avatars, and I think I recognize the one for Strange2. Is it the Rocambole Tarot?

You are correct, that is from the Hermit card on the Rocambole Tarot, or what some have referred to as the Mayan Lego Tarot.  I really like the geometric tribal energies in this deck.

Lovely Queen of Cups from the Victorian Romantic!

I am currently working on the court cards for that in my visual journal.

The Queen of Wands insisted on the purple paper to go with her dress. And then ALL the Swords said they'd look well with red. As you can see, the Queen of Cups is gazing at the green paper and thinking how WELL she and her companions would look with green--always thinking about others and their emotional well-being.

The Pentacles are Burgundy, they like red earth and lots of wine. I personally feel the Page looks a bit soused, but young men do like to carouse.

:) Well Q, you are right next to my heart...my beloved Victorian Romantic Tarot. 

Isn't is lovely?  My deck of choice, the deck of my soul. 

And yes, that is me, the Queen of Cups, ...always putting others before myself...well, 99% of the time anyway. :P...but that's what mother's do. :D

The Victorian Romantic is definitely in the top 15 for decks I like. I have so enjoyed working with it.

The colours always seemed nice to me. But more importantly, it brings out memories of my own life. Words, images, it's a nice deck for reconnecting via art and experience in the journals I made for it. I have the plain deck so I made my own journals.

I don't think I've ever done a reading with it--I'm sure you are scandalized, but I bought it for the art connection and the opportunity to do a visual journal with one deck, so that's the way it works well for me.

:shock: Oh soooo scandalous!  LOL! 

:P Just kidding...I do enough reading with it to make up for anyone elses lost time anyway.

But you are right, it a visually stimulating deck....aesthetically pleasing to the eye and  just plain beautiful.  ....Don't tell, but I print the cards on plain paper sometimes and color them myself with color pencil....I'm a VR lover, like no other. :cool:

I had every intention of barrelling along doing a card per week at least, but I found it was too little time to be reflective. It takes time to find an art reference to sketch or in one case, for me to press leaves and birch bark for the art that I'm doing on the page.

There is calligraphy--I am using a modern interpretation called Pen Script Bold (capitals and miniscules.) From the book "The Calligrapher's Bible" by David Harris. He says it's good for beginners to calligraphy, which I am. I've copied a sheet and put it under plastic to carry around to do inking--flip it over to do capitals.

I refer to it my interpretation as "wonky" calligraphy as I tend to slant it every way. Still good practice, another reason for the journal. Not asking questions, just doing intuitive interpretation, maybe you could call it that? Just my own little world.

I have a couple more pictures on my web site under (Books/Journals), and if you get the ATA newsletter in print form, I had an article in there recently about this journal.

Oh, and back to avatars, I changed mine in my current fervour for all things Templar.

My wish for figurines to go with decks seems to have rocketed in price. (I blame Papageno and his Dr. Strange figurine myself.)

This is a hand painted metal soldier in conventional 54 mm (2.25 inch) size. $50 USD for the metal base and at least $90 and up to get someone to paint it--but the guys who paint these are real artists--this one is breathtaking.

Just in case anyone NEEDS one to go with the Grail Tarot. VBG

I don't believe that's my page you are referring to. Maybe Papageno's? He's got a fab-o series of photographs of decks and related stuff at Photobucket I think it is.

But in any case, whatever page it was, it got you to buy the Dante!

That's a good one. Now I do have a snap of that with some of my Dante books on my web site. It's a sentimental favourite of mine.

will clarify.....went on an internet tour last nite....

first i viewed quidlimit's home gallery page, showing some wonderful creations along with her dante spread, laid out in front of books relating to dante (dore engravings, etc)....

back to TCF...i looked at collector's  figurines, and the marvel comics deck... inspired, i did a search for the marvel comics tarot....that lead me to the marvel web site

....next i went to alida store....the dante was $$$

in the beginning, i started collecting only art decks that were painterly and well designed and well colored...my collection and appreciation has grown and expanded with input from collectors like yourselves, who share information about your collections....

 decks have been the ACE... the beginning energy which has stimulated further exploration of  topics, such as the writings of dante, the victorian period, gothic tales, mythology, the mock heroic poem, THE RAPE OF THE LOCK, by alexander pope,  the purchase of alchemical prints (from adam), etc...

...by the way if anyone is interested in looking at the RAPE OF THE LOCK, the first canto contains many references to a card game, which i thought was tarot... the poem refers to PAGES, DEATH, CHARIOT....but actually the game is called OMBRE.... there are further links formore info about this card game.  There are many beautiful and poetic descriptions and symbols of the four elements in the RAPE OF THE LOCK.

[Nodding, nodding.] The Ace, I like the way you phrased that.

I see another go 'round on having too many decks over at AT. We've all traded decks at one time or another, so that is meaningless as a benchmark for seriousness or scholarly dedication, and the insistence that people have little intellect, depth, or reading ability because they collect decks is misinformation at best and ignorance at worst.

I'm not quite sure why some cannot parse this connection to exploration and its concomitant vitality. If I had the money, I'd take all of Adam's courses on Tarot Art and History; not because it will make me a better reader, but because it will make me a better human.

However, I am quite excited to see you have bought the Dante! The art on that is exquisite.

And thank you for your comments on my web site--my reconnection to art and creativity is a direct result of tarot cards.

It seems like ya'll know each other from other places (and times).  And other forums and web sites.  What are the other forums you are on?  I have seen AT acouple of times, but I am not sure what it is.  Will you share web site addresses?  By PM if you want so they don't go out to potential spammers, JIC one of the nasties actually does read any of the threads.

I don't associate with many tarot sites. ATF address is

http://www.tarotforum.net

A general forum with generalized information.

Many people enjoy it, but I find it lacking in genuine interest and effort in study, originality, and depth of discussion.

It's good for beginners until you find your own path. After that you'll need to look elsewhere for challenges, and learning.


[Edited: forgot to say that it's good for trading decks--I've met several nice people that way.]

Aeclectic Tarot--I'm there -- same name -- as are quite a few others here.  It's a complex site, been around quite a while, with many sections -- as with any library, you may have to search to find what you're looking for and perhaps you won't, but I recommend it highly.

tarot collecting has stimulated me to explore new techniques and materials and i am bringing forth new and different kinds of art...so if. the tarot is the ACE, the finished art work is the TEN....with all the cards inbetween, being the artistic process itself....

hi skad...yes it must be other times....perhaps past lives...

i look at ACELECTIC TAROT....probably other members do also... when you go there, click on COMMUNITY...i read a tarot review there, or i follow a thread or a conversation about a deck, and i become curious  about the deck....and so the collecting continues...and my collection expands

I'm dressed for the holidays.

In real life I am incredibly judgmental so this is an appropriate avatar all year 'round (well, maybe Justice is better....)

Guesses?  It's close to home.

My current avatar isn't from a deck, but from a piece of mail art I did, in a style they call "zetti"(or zettiology!)

I am involved in making a collaborative deck with a bunch of wacky artists, who are doing it in this style.

But...I  bet you can guess who it depicts! :D

Nice one, Chronata. :)  But...I've been browsing through this thread and not every post makes sense - some members have changed their avatars since posting. So I'll add mine below, just in case I need a change sometime. It's #1 from The Mystic Rubaiyat.

I change avatars frequently...this is the Tarot parade from the 2006 Winter Olympics.

Yes and no idea how to use it ... 

I have twisted friends who put my face on pictures as they know how easily amused I can be.

Beginning today....

A minor diversion for the terminally bored.....

A Serial Avatar in Thirteen Parts.



(Tune in for part II in a couple of days, and so on, thereafter...)

Well, it's about three months and thirteen avatars later.

I hope you've enjoyed the show!

If not,
there's always next season...

Yah, very nice avatars...a full set.  At first I thought I had to track the chess pieces. Thank God I forgot about doing that.

But don't the individual Potato avatars all FIT TOGETHER into one coherent whole, a mega-avatar?

Do we get to see that? (Please) :D

I've just spent the afternoon swimming--as you can see, I've washed my hair and can't do a thing with it.

My avatar is one of the two (!) cards I have done for one thing or another... I am hoping to get going on others finally!

I'm back to my own Her-mit.  Suits my current mood-state and lifestyle.  Besides, it has real hair ... and it's mine, from my hair brush ... then dread-locked.
