The Magician by RingmasterBent The Magician by RingmasterBent
From my revamp of a 10 year old Tarot project, the Deck of the Dreamers. The text and numbering will come when I've finished the deck, so for now they remain blank.

The usual magician symbolism is here, but with a small change:

I've gone with a combination of the powerful magician and the classic juggler/trickster magician. I wanted him to look somewhat crazed, but also convincing. Instead of the usual wand in the air and finger pointing down, I decided to have him focus on his tools. We saw a street performer recently in Burlington and I tried to imitate the kinds of gestures he made to draw the eye.

What kind of sane person spends that much time on his beard? :)

I have to say, he looks less "crazed" than convincing. Though the mention of him trying to mimic a street performer certainly leans toward the former alright. XD
