A little project I am currently undertaking…to make a deck of plant ally cards.
Begun end of 2022.
Here are 11 examples. Once I have completed the deck, I will surely be shouting it out! I love the color dusty rose and chose that as the background. Making graphics is hard for me- it doesn’t come naturally. A month into making the cards, I received feedback about doing it differently, so you will notice a change after card 7, new graphics. Maybe dusty rose being my favorite color isn’t the best option for plant ally cards.
Just to be clear, plants are magnificent, complex beings who cannot be captured in a card. My intention with this creation is to make a kind of flash card to aid in recognition, invoke curiosity and offer an intro-understanding of who these plant beings are. More Americans can identify corporate logos than they can plants. My work aims in changing this. These cards are also for those plant people who already know the many gifts of plants but want to keep them in the forefront of their minds.
I realized that what I want to offer is a Plants as Allies deck like this, in accompaniment with a book called Plants As Allies. So this project is gonna take a little longer but I intend to complete it. Reach out of you are a good at graphics and can help with the cards and/or an agent who would want to support this project.
