This is in regard to the derivative work on the Ant King contest. I've been thinking of it for a long time, but it hasn't fully materialized; so I thought an blog post would be better than nothing at all.
I was putting together plans for an Ant King Tarot -- the suits would be gumballs, blimps... I haven't sorted the other two (Wisdom Ants, perhaps?). Some of the Major Arcana are pleasantly obvious: The Ant King as the Hierophant; Matthias as The Hermit; the Orange as The World, The White Witch's Chariot. And even "Benjamin Rosenbaum", the plausible-fabulist, as the Fool.
My artistic skills are not up to the task of designing such a deck. As well, perhaps fully filling in the slots of the deck from the images of B. Rosenbaum's imagined worlds is too much, and it's better to let this remain a dream of possibility, a fabulous and non-existent thing.
