:iconmanipulatethis: the new contest is "Tarts of Hearts"…

I'll be adding more as I come across the games in the groups I'm part of, or as I hear about them amongst other DA groups.



April's Fool in Tarot Challenge

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 2, 2014, 10:44 AM

Hello Friends...

Please take a look at the new challenge at my :iconcastle-of-cards: group. Thanks, folks. 

In remembrance of the FOOL in April I've created the following challenge: The Fool as found in the first card of the Tarot. Easy peasy. ;p Here are the specs and some examples as well:

:bulletred: create your artwork, any media accepted representing The FOOL from the Tarot world.
:bulletred: you must include it's numerical or word numbering which is 0 or Zero.
:bulletred: size requirement is 5x7 (portrait view)
:bulletred: you must include a model, your choice, that "informs" the meaning of the card. Here is a meaning supplied by

The fool in colorful motley clothes, pack tied to a staff, a small dog, a cliff.

Fool Tarot Story
With all his worldly possessions in one small pack, the Fool travels he knows not where. So filled with visions, questions, wonder and excitement is he, that he doesn't see the cliff he is likely to fall over. At his heel a small dog harries him (or tries to warn him of a possible mis-step). Will the Fool learn to pay attention to where he's going before it's too late?

Fool Tarot Card Meaning
At #0  the Fool is the card of infinite possibilities. The bag on the staff indicates that he has all he needs to do or be anything he wants, he has only to stop and unpack. He is on his way to a brand new beginning.

But the card carries a little bark of warning as well. While it's wonderful to be enthralled with all around you, excited by all life has to offer, you still need to watch your step, lest you fall and end up looking the fool.

:bulletred: You are not required to use the traditional "pack tied to a staff," small dog or cliff images. This is where YOUR creativity is to come in-to create your own version of a journeying "Fool." I'm allowing this leeway so as to encourage your imagination to have free reign. :)
:bulletred: frame or border is suggested but not required
:bulletred: Due date is May 4th

Here are some examples of The Fool:
Tarot card 0- the Fool by rann-poisoncage     Tarot - The Fool by azurylipfe     Tarot - 0 - The Fool by gogirlanime     Tarot 0: The Fool by poisondlo
The Fool Tarot by psycho-kitty      Tarot Series: The Fool by Niekra

And a few from Castle folk:
Absolut Tarot - 0 Traveller (Fool) by Eon-Brush     The Fool by thelemadreams    The Fool by thefantasim    The Fool by Reddawgi

OK, I think this covers it all. If we have a healthy participation number, I'll organize similar challenges for other cards-so tell your friends and groups you have influence in about our game. :)

General instructions for submission…


Red Scott
United States
I'm a mixed media artist, word weaver, songstress and dreamer of dreams. One accomplishment I'm proud of, has been the founding of the Capolan Exchange which, over the last two decades has morphed into the Traveler's H'Art art exchange and electronic dialogue group. I've been imagining and facilitating collaborative art card deck projects for as long a time as well. When I'm not singing, creating art, writing or dancing I find myself living out my days in that 'other world' of wife, mother of four, gardener, student and the occasional cleaner of the home.
Oh! gramma to Nova Joy and Lukas. All in all, it's a full life and one I'm grateful for.

Current Residence: California USA
deviantWEAR sizing preference: medium

Favourite style of art: surrealism, fantasy, intelligent eerieness

Personal Quote: "The tragedy of growing old is that you were once young."
