Palm Readin'

Palm Readin'

Ok, even though I drew this, I still have no idea what it all means when I look at my own palm. First, should I read my predominant hand (I'm a lefty). Or is it always the right hand? Does it matter? The lines LOOK different on each hand. I'm thinking I'm gunna go with the one that says I'm going to live the longest and be the happiest, where I get to travel the world, be married and have kids. Right? Which hand allows me to do all that?!! Maybe I should leave it to the "professionals"!!

I've always had an affection for Palm Reading signs...they're so cool, so mysterious and kind of kitschy too. I just haven't gathered the nerve to stop in one and get an actual reading. It's on that "that'd be cool to do some day" list. BUT, I get a little freaked out about the idea of someone else being able to glimpse into my future. Besides, I'd only really want to know good news. Bad news sucks. Period. No need for advance warning! And besides that, I'd probably worry that they were keeping bad news from me.

So yeah, guess I'll move this to the "I'm too chickenshit for this" list.

LOVE this!! I love palm reading art too! And tarot card art, and carney art, witchy art... Any design of this nature that's old, like 40, 50, 60 years old and older, pretty great stuff. This is an excellent palm illo - you've really captured a nostalgic feeling with it! Yet is so mod.

As for the palm reading, go forth and CONQUER YOUR FEAR!!!!

(Hah, I'm just kidding... :))

...I have similar fortune teller temptations/ trepidation! I think a bad fortune would be creepy and more than I could take. If I saw this cheery image in a window though, I might take a chance! ;-)
