09:54 am - on the Maverick Tarot

V. The Empress
Originally uploaded by chrismaverick.
I finally started working on my Tarot deck. I have finished two cards. Only 78 more to go.

I have some ideas about some of the cards, and I have a nice long list of people who have agreed to model, but before I go any further I'm going to need to plan ahead an work out some details. So if you're interested in posing, you could help me out by filling out the following little questionnaire.

I am still of course looking for other people, so if you know someone who would be interested, send them my way.

Physical basics
1) Are you male or female?
2) How old are you?
3) What's your body type? (fat, skinny, average, athletic, etc.)
4) What's your ethnicity? (black, white, hispanic, asian, etc.)
5) What color is your hair and how long is it?
6) Is there a good pictue of you online that I can use as a reference?

Clothing basics
7) Do you have cool looking black clothes?
8) Do you have cool looking colorful clothes?
9) Do you have cool goth/club/fancy clothes?
10) Do you have cool trendy/business casual clothes?
11) Do you have cool casual/street clothes?
12) Do you have cool formal/evening clothes?
13) Do you mind posing in your underwear?
14) Do you mind posing in the nude (or partially nude)?

16) Do you have your own cane or staff? What kind?
17) Do you have your own cool looking coin or disc? What kind?
18) Do you have your own cool looking cup or glass? What kind?
19) Do you have some other prop you'd really like to pose with? What is it?

Misc
20) Describe your personality in three words?
21) Describe your appearance in three words?
22) Have you ever modeled for photography before?
23) Have you ever modeled for me before?
24) Is there anyone else that you'd definitely like to pose with or do you really want to be on a card alone?
25) Let me know anything else you think I should really take into account.

I'm still not going to promise anyone any specific card (especially since it turns out that like most people request like the same 10 cards, and no one asks for the other 68) but I did write down when people requested a certain card.

Oh, also let me know when you're going to be around to shoot. Thanx.

okay... I know the odds of my being in Pittsburgh or you being in Seattle while this project is going on are slim but just in case:


1. - 6. you already know & see me on flickr every day ;)
7. yes
8. yes
9. yes
10. not so much
11. not as much
12. yes
13. not at all
14. nope

15. - 19. I have access to a prop shop, so if there's something you're having trouble getting I might be able to help with that.

20. I'm bad at this and you know me so how about I just say "feisty"
21. I'll go with "cute-sexy" and "pixie-ish" if those are real words.
22. yes (and not just for myself)
23. nope
24. you know I'd love to do a whole series with you
25. I miss you! and I have no specific card requests. I'm easy like that ;)

well, like I told you before. I expect I'll still be working on it by Jammy Jam, so all you have to do is come visit me then.

Also, I could totally use help with the props.

Hello there. I had volunteered the possibility of myself and/or my son. When separate, the first column/answer will be for me and the second for him.

1) M
2) 34, 3.5
3) average, skinny
4) whyte
5) brown short, blond short
6) This should be fairly representative but Colin just had a haircut yesterday.

10-11-12) probably; the line between these sort of blurs for me
13) Probably, unless I look good, I can't tell anymore
14) yes

Props
15-19) not really, unless you count a hunting knife, and I'm not sure where it is exactly

Misc
20) stressed working dad; bouncy enthusiastic boy
21) basically matches appearances
22-23) no

dammit... you just identified a flaw in my planning so far. I have different outfit types planned out for each suit. Gothic/clubwear type stuff is what I'm using for swords. I also have different themes planned for the various numbers in each suit. Fours are all going to be little kids.

Now here's the obvious problem that I hadn't realized til just now. Where am I going to find a little kid with cool clubgear. *sigh*

Actually, I have considered that, and in fact intend to do so. That would be perfect for one of the ideas I have.

The scales would be useful too.
