The Hermit - Tarot Series by 

Self-portrait with circular inspiration within an inspiration…

Tarot Series, by Birds.

A little backstory; i began this series in 2007, completed several cards and then just sort of…lost the inspiration.
Meanwhile, Birds here created the above musical piece to the cards i had completed (to be found here, if you scroll down to the bottom of the page).
Over the past few days, i’ve listened to the piece about 43,000 times (i recommend putting it on headphones and cranking it up to 11 ) and sure enough, i found myself ready to start working on the series again.
Some are already uploaded here –
Tarot Series, with the exception of The Star, which is still too small to be printed so doesn’t show up on the RB gallery thing – so lame.

Anyway -
Yay, brainarttwinnage!

Now onto the interpretation (the one i like best is paraphrased below and originally to be found here) -

“The Hermit is a card of connections and enlightenment. Combined with a desire to just “be alone,” the Querent who gets this card is probably feeling impatient with people who disturb their peace or who can’t see what they’re seeing (“Are you blind?” might be their refrain, or, more typically, “You just don’t get it, and I can’t explain it to you.”). In typical Virgo fashion, they’re likely to be grumpy and anti-social. But for the Querent (if no one else!) this is a special time. Like an artist who hides for days then emerges to paint a masterpiece, this quiet time allows all the pieces to fall into place."

    i think this is awesome .. very cool lighting/shadows and the texture is very cool yet subtle…
    and with lashes like those how can anyone not LOVE it :)

  • Thanks very much, Shoaib!
    Did you know there is some kind of stupid “eyelash enhancement” for sparsely lashed bimbos? It’s being called a “medical condition”…Sparse Lash Syndrome or something equally absurd.
    Buy fake ones, for Bog’s sake! Heheh.

  • Thank you very much, Sis – your work is ridiculously inspiring. Your colors in the Anime series seeped into my brain for the Hierophant piece, i’m sure. Like candy or something :) xx
