I did this piece as contribution for an art group I'm a part of. Each of us did a rendition of one of the tarot's Major Arcana. I was thankful to get the Hermit, as this card has always been one of my favorites. :) Please note that I did not go by every 'classic' meaning of the Hermit's symbolism -- one friend pointed out that his eyes are closed, whereas the Hermit supposedly never closes his eyes. Again, though, I derived my own meaning from the card and from the mythos surrounding it, rather than repeating everything that has been duplicated through so many different forms of tarot. Whether that's 'right' or not is left up to individual interpretation, but I believe tarot is something best left to individual interpretation in and of itself. ;) It will have different meanings for everyone. This was a joy to work on and I'm very proud of it. I'd like to do more tarot designs in the future. Colored in Photoshop.
