#57 Draw or write your character as a card. Are they more of a regular card from a playing deck? How about a tarot card? What makes them that card?


The Temperance card is a reference to the soul. Classically female, the woman or angel on the Temperance card is mixing up a blend of subtle energies for the evolution of the personality. One key to interpreting this card can be found in its title -- a play on the process of tempering metals in a forge.

Metals must undergo extremes of temperature, folding, and pounding, but the end product is infinitely superior to impure ore mined from the earth. In this image, the soul volunteers the ego for a cleansing and healing experience, which may turn the personality inside-out, but which brings out the gold hidden within the heart.

    This is such a beautiful depiction of Fo, and really does feel suited to him. I love that his expression is so calculated and calm, sweet and helpful. He exudes a warmth - it’s so perfectly Fo.

      Thank you! I don't know if the others will live up to the aesthetic goodness that is Fo fitting in with this card... but I hope so!

    He looks so calm and tranquil. Such a nice feel to the piece. I love the flow of that water too.

    Very cool!

      Aw, thank you! I'm so glad it gives serenity. <3 I felt it was a good card for him visually as well, so I'm happy it came through.
