Chainsmoke card suits by el-roacho Chainsmoke card suits by el-roacho
Sometimes I like reading about things like card suits and their symbolism, which results in drawings like this. :B

Sadly, the scan didnít pick up some of the brighter colors. :<

Generally Prismacolor, but I also use Trias and Pantone markers.

You forgot the Joker - I imagine 'twas intentional - still incomparable though.

Mind if I use the basic concept as a Meme?
With this as a link?

Because by the time you see this I'll have done already - I wanted to get your Post-mission.

Yeah, no offense meant, but I kind of would like to avoid myself or my art being meme material. Not that I could help it if you already did it though. :/

Oh, far from it that I'd use your Art per Memetic free of thy Permission! Heavens! No.

If you'll scrimshaw the text again - note that I meant the Basic Concept - The form of the meme'.

Namely, that A simple Card suits struction makes as Ideal a ''meme'' as the ever-curious ''Parody-religion'' Tarot card meme - which has led to many a successful result most desirous towards excellence if it's not there already.

In due amelioration towards any confusion - I give forth the link per incidental perusal:

I'm not doing ''this'' - I 'm doing, or rather, have done - A ''That'' - already posted, mind you, a Notice to propagate a ''Playing card suit meme' '' which is only the from displayed by this particular work. I am not - Repeat knot - Repeat NOT ad INFINITUM - using your characters - Or anything of your particular Privy Kunst (Deutsche: Art) for this ''Card suits'' meme.

If anything - I'd use my own characters in mere EMULATION of this particular Suits Concept.

And I stress - a thousand thousand times over and a thousand thousand myriads more - that I am not , neither Perforce or like fashion, ''Copying'' anything more than the FORM - sans characters of thine - of. THIS. particular. Singular. Work.

To make this doubly clear I here post the link to the paper what says it all - THRICE:

AND - To make sure we are ab-so-lutely clear - Here is the entire commentary here posted TWICE:

I'm not doing ''this'' - I 'm doing, or rather, have done - A ''That'' - already posted, mind you, a Notice to propagate a ''Playing card suit meme' '' which is only the from displayed by this particular work. I am not - Repeat knot - Repeat NOT ad INFINITUM - using your characters - Or anything of your particular Privy Kunst (Deutsche: Art) for this ''Card suits'' meme.

If anything - I'd use my own characters in mere EMULATION of (Inspiration by) this particular Suits Concept.

And I stress - a thousand thousand times over and a thousand thousand myriads more - that I am not , neither Perforce or like fashion, ''Copying'' anything more than the FORM (The Template of) - sans characters of thine - of. THIS. particular. Singular. Work.

I needn't post the link Sex-fold - so I'll leave it at that with Clarity thus made.

Om.

Addendum: Further more, if it is but that you wish the link to this work removed - you have but only to ask.

I will not, however, Censor that which possesses no content that needs censor and shall not consider inspiration as a form of Plagiarism - What would the world come to then?

Creatively starved that's what - by constant litigation!

Is that a Threat?
Because if it is, I curse you thus:

'May all thy works profit greatly,
May thy successes be numerous,
May thy fields ever prosper,
May it thus increase greatly,
May only Good come to thee,
and evil pass thee by,
may Only Good luck thee - thence the day ye die,
I give to thee this Cursing - to be free of all misgivings - a profit from the prophet.
May thy art's fame be great - as we all know it shall,
The Negation of the Negative, I only wish on thou.'

Feel free to disinterpret this as I've misinterpreted thus.
And look up the ''Sabbath's prayer'' from Fiddler on the roof ,if you would, the whole Play is a Jew-stravaganza of greatest proportions!

I think the setting says you can comment after two weeks of following? I'm terrible with the technicalities of Tumblr, so yeah probably. :B

And thanks! haha
