Our next storytelling show, Wild Card, is a little more than a week away. We drafted artist Sarah Gentile to create our themed image, which as you can see is intricate and dynamic and wonderful. Asked about her inspiration, here’s what she had to say:
When presented with the theme of “Wild Card,” the first (and probably most obvious) things that came to mind were playing cards. I love face cards and knew right off that I wanted to create my own Joker. What snuck its way in a bit unexpectedly was the loop symbol for infinity. Maybe it was stuck in the back of my mind while I sketched.
It seems appropriate that I include it, though, because for me a wild card or Joker represents infinite possibility and change. I hope to convey through this image a bit of chaos and order, motion and stasis, positive and negative space, looping into that sideways figure-eight as a reminder of the infinite possibilities within our lives and the stories we tell.
Indeed. We love that notion, too, of “the infinite possibilities within our lives and the stories we tell.“
We’ll be introducing our four Wild Card storytellers shortly. Details on the reading are here.
