Very nicely done. The combination of a hanging man and radiating light display the end and re-beginning to me very well.

As I contemplated on the meaning of the card, I actually remembered Odin hanging from the world tree as he discovered the runes

Interesting. How was this done?

Out of curiosity, do the runes say anything? I tried reading them but couldn't get heads or tails out of it...

These works are all traditional pen & ink drawings, whereas I used metallic gel pens

As for the runes, I did ponder if I should put a hidden message, but in the end I decided to place gibberish instead. I have had many people imply malicious and darker meanings to my works, hence I evaded such matters by putting a meaningless set of letters

Gorgeous. Are you alluding to Odin hanging from the Yggdrasil in this one?
I think this is another one of my favorites from your work. I really like what you did with the halo of leaves at the top and the way you echoed that shape at the bottom with the rows of runes.

Thanks Ulalumes

I was wondering who would be the first to get the comparison to Odin, which was the actual basis for the original creation of the Arcana
