"I think writing really helps you heal yourself. I think if you write long enough, you will be a healthy person. That is, if you write what you need to write, as opposed to what will make money, or what will make fame."

0. The Fool

In many esoteric systems of interpretation, the Fool is usually interpreted as the protagonist of a story, and the Major Arcana is the path the Fool takes through the great mysteries of life and the main human archetypes. This path is known traditionally in Tarot as the Fool’s Journey, and is frequently used to introduce the meaning of Major Arcana cards to beginners. (Wikipedia)

Here’s the first Hannibal tarot card! It’s going to be a long project - there are 22 Major Arcana and I’m almost sure I won’t draw them all.

It seemed to me that this card perfectly matched with Will, who is (initially) unaware of the danger that is following him.

Please, don’t repost, just reblog. Thanks! :)

FRIDAY APRIL 11: preview #2 of 3! Yesterday: PERCEPTION.

Antler velvet is rich in nutrients—it actually promotes healing. He may have put it there on purpose… he was trying to undo as much as he could. This is an apology.” This was entirely Kristen’s idea; it’s "a satin finish with metallic copper highlight and green/red mid tones." 

The deer pictured has no antlers, I know. That’s because they’re all in the Shrike’s Nest (an alternate name for the color). Minnesota no longer has antlers because they’re all in there. But Freddie and I liked the idea of antler velvet in a jar (healing properties not included) so much that we begged to go back to the original name, and an informal Twitter poll sealed the deal. 

Tomorrow: an Alana-themed color, and then they’ll be up on the site.

Grace’s wedding dress was the crowning achievement of Helen Rose’s career, and the most expensive garment she ever designed. The dress, valued at more than $7,200 at the time, had been worked on feverishly in top secret for six week by a platoon of three dozen seamstresses. Suitably feminine and elegant, it was an ivory high-necked, long-sleeved gown with a fitted bodice with an overlay of 125-year-old rose point lace. The cut of the gown accentuated Grace’s tiny waist; its voluminous bell skirt of silk taffeta, peau de soie, tulle, and lace billowed with hundreds of yards of fabric. The circular veil added ninety more yards of tulle, highlighted with seed pearls and affixed to a small fitted headpiece.

FRIDAY APRIL 11: Three colors this week, and here’s a preview of the first one. The gifs at the top (the first from this set; still trying to track down the other) are what I originally put in the Inspiration Folder. Kristen says the color itself is a “deep purply taupe, then copper/bronze, then gold/yellow sparkles”; the working name was “Mind Metronome,” then “Metronome,” and then a brief stop at “Empathy.” Eventually, though, we remembered that line—“Perception is a tool pointed on both ends.”
