The Fool

Another new Tarot card. This one is The Fool. I chose to focus on the Fool as a traveller on a journey through the Major Arcana of the Tarot set. The Major Arcana can be seen as the soul's journey through the different phases of life. The Major Arcana are the main cards of a Tarot deck, such as The Fool, The Lovers, The Hanged Man, etc.

I have included some process pics including a sketch of the layout. If you have been following my blog, you may know that I had an art show coming up. My art show at Aperture in Vancouver has been cancelled, I don't know if they are rescheduling me or not. I just found out yesterday, and am pretty disappointed.

The Moon

Finished The Moon Tarot card. This will be one of a series at my art show, opening February 29 at Aperture coffee shop. I did the head and body separately, so I could carve the head easier.

The Moon has to do with mystery, deep instincts and imagination. It also signifies dreams, myths and fantasies. The traditional Tarot card features a dog and a wolf on it, so I chose to stay with the wolf imagery, but instead create an anthropormorphic figure, symbolizing the wildness within ourselves, that sometimes comes out during the full moon.
