MAGIC 8-HEART # 20c

This design is inspired by the “Magic 8-Ball”, a toy used to help make decisions based on randomized chance.  Here, the answer given is fixed at “Yes”, which might suggest positive outcomes or prospects – although that depends on what is being asked.  Prolonged meditation upon this seemingly simple device leads to semiotic slippage.
