Card of the Day

I drew this this morning, it's just taken me this long to get a post up.
King of Wands, Llewellyn Tarot )
King of Wands, from the Llewellyn Tarot (which my dad bought me for Christmas. I would never have purchased this deck for myself - it did not appeal to me in the box, for some reason, and I had the mistaken impression that it was an Arthurian deck. It is, in fact, based on Welsh myth and legend, but not directly touching Arthur, and the art is watercolor with sharp lines and broad strokes of color. I really like it! Hooray for gifts!)
The Llewellyn Tarot book includes the phrase "An intellectual, artistic force" when describing this card. I like that imagery quite a lot. Today is a day of evaluation and creativity at the office, so it's even appropriate. I've been engaging in much more graphic design and creative tasks at work, which is fabulous, plus trying to branch out a bit in my own personal portfolio.
I have new fandoms to create for, as well as unexplored media (fabric paint! watercolors! Painter X! 3-D collage!), and the hopes of great productivity into 2011.
I like the promise of discipline (which is something I need to work on) and success in the card, as well as the warning of both. As always, my artistic direction is in my own hands.

Now to see how reliably I remember to draw and post a Card of the Day.
