Hi !

I´m trying with Tarot drawings or black & white things. I think about a Majors Arcana deck.

This is the first one - Temperance. "What has Temperance to do with that ?", a few of you maybe will ask. O.k., Where is Temperance? It is on the way down. We already passed death. And now there´s Temperance and tells us to make a little slowly, to be a little careful, not to let everything go, to keep a little consciousness.

The man jumps into the water, he wants to swimm. In the back you can see a swimmring and the feet of another person. If the man is in danger to drown, the other person will be able to help.

Temperance protects us from drowning.

This looks like it's going to be a great deck.  I can't wait to see the rest of the cards.
Great artwork!

Thank you ;-))

Well, this try for the collaborative deck with the 7 of wands gave me the kick to make more drawings. I like that. Maybe I will have different versions for one card in the end. We will see. Anyhow an interesting occupation.

One more ..... The devil

What it shows:

What does a little look like a bomb with a fuse seems to vibrate or is under pressure. The fuse glows. If we follow the fuse it is continued in a snake that closes a circle around a kind of fire inside the bomb while biting herself into the tail.

This is the Death



What it shows:

A little girl plays with a marble track. She lets the ball go and then will watch how it rolls. She also just has let the butterfly go and it flies out of the window, but perhaps it will sit down on her extended hand, and she will be surprised.

Hi

This is my newest, the Moon.



...and a little bigger for the curious ones ;-)
http://www.langustl.de/blackwhite/mondxl.jpg


What it shows:

To come further she must grope slowly and walk step by step . She is not really aware what goes on around her. She can react to it with confidence or with fear.

This is the newest, the Wheel of Fortune



What it shows:

The moon is an old symbol for a cycle. The alarm clock ends our night every morning, our daily day routine often has a very similar charactre. The Sunday stands for an escape from this cycle.

I like the idea of the clock in the Wheel of Fortune card. This place I live in where everyone is chasing every second of every minute; the image you drew shows the moment just before the alarm goes off and everyone wakes up to a mad rat-race. Deadlines, meetings; busy, busy, busy chasing that heart-attack just waiting to happen.   

Sometimes I think of the Wheel of Fortune card as a hamster in a cage. There's food, water and a place to sleep. Maybe the lil' guy is happy running round and round in a wheel inside its plastic cage but he ain't going nowhere unless something changes.

You have some really good ideas for a deck that reflects the present day. :ok

Ash

The Siamese twins must agree on a direction, though different interests are existing.

Hi

I did a few bigger paintings in the last weeks, so I had to let you wait with the black & white. But this is the newest. The 7 of Coins. As the other three paintings I did before, it shows, that you have to leave something behind to be able to reach the one important thing. This is the meaning of the 7 of Coins in my eyes, sacrfice unimportant things and concentrate on the important.

Hope you like it ;-)

What it shows:

The balloondriver must sacrifice one of the six sacks of sand to ascend with the balloon.

Hi

This is the newest one. Making ones way alone is a subject of my actual life. The card has the same content. It´s really hard to find another symbol than the Waite card shows. My try is very similar to it.

What it shows:

The farmer has everything he needs. He can nearly exist without help from outside.

I got a new one, the Hermit.

What it shows:

The cook has used his and other experiences and together stirred all ingredients to a soup. It must only cook a little bit now

The Hierophant:

What it shows:

It´s the end of a day, and on the top of a rock a man looks down to the area he has passed and left behind.

Just catching up - it's exciting to see how you're progressing. Your style is so distinctive and original with real feeling for form and weight - looking forward to more...

Hi ;-)

Thanks a lot. The progress of this work goes more than slowly, but I have a lot of other work. I will go on step by step over "the years" ;-))
