My work FORTUNE TELLER was done in Photoshop CS2 and is a Photomanipulation, using some original photos, fashion clip art, animal clip art, background clip art and some digital painting.
I have never been to a Fortune Teller myself, but have always been fascinated by the neon signs they have in the front of their establishments. Most often it is a Neon Hand facing palm up or a Big Sinister Eye always lit up at night in bright color. The names are most often Psychic, Palmreader and Fortuneteller.
Well one night I was going to drive up to Los Angeles from San Diego where I live, I dropped by a friends house first and then headed for the freeway entrance. I drove to where I was sure the entrance was and to my disappointment it was not anywhere to be seen. Now I was somehow sure in my mind that this was where the entrance was because I had used it before. I tried to orient myself to where I was and continued driving around for what seemed like hours. Finally I made a turn down a street which had a big neon FORTUNE TELLER SIGN lit up bright as ever with a neon arrow that said ENTRANCE. To my amazement straight down the street beyond the fortune teller buiness was the freeway entrance.
