The Fool’s first step

The Fool is known for leaping. He is often shown stepping off a cliff, which he seems unaware of. Below are a few drawings that I have been working on around the Fool’s journey. I have a lot of ideas about what kind of symbols should be included in the cards in general – most of which come from the qabala, western hermeticism, and jungian thought. I don’t want to get to heady yet, so I am going to just post the images for now. I will get into talking about my ideas later on. They will make more sense when there are more cards drawn so I can talk about the evolution of ideas from card to card.
