I figured this week's card was long overdue. One of my first 5 pieces I created in this multi media style and one of the first I decided ought to be a tarot card well after it was made and still, one of my personal favorites.
I really enjoyed creating this piece because it was so spur of the moment and encouraged by the company, inspiration and help of my friend, Kim. It seemed to just come together on it's own and combining my 2 passions into one art form that allowed me to really express the style and idea, photography and drawing, was all brand new and fresh to me.
As I mentioned before, I created the piece almost 4 years ago before I started even thinking about the tarot deck but I thought it was interesting how similar it resembled the Strength card with the, taming the beast, aspect and it's Americana importance. This piece and card really set the tone for the rest of the deck to come after.
