Sice THE FOOL has a long description, I only link the wikipage: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fool_(Tarot_card)
My mother has a rider tarot interpretation book in german, I think I'll work with this, because it's easier to work with all the themes and symbols if you relly understand the detais (And my english isn't that good)
THE EIGHT OF COINS is a card used in Latin suited playing cards which include tarot decks. It is part of what tarot card readers call the "Minor Arcana" Tarot cards are used throughout much of Europe to play Tarot card games.
In English-speaking countries, where the games are largely unknown, Tarot cards came to be utilized primarily for divinatory purposes.
An artist in stone at his work, which he exhibits in the form of trophies. Divinatory Meanings: Work, employment, commission, craftsmanship, skill in craft and business, perhaps in the preparatory stage. Steady patience with achievement kept in mind. Reversed: Voided ambition, vanity, cupidity, exaction, usury. It may also signify the possession of skill, in the sense of the ingenious mind turned to cunning and intrigue.
Modern interpretation I would really work with the meaning of the cards, what they can say in their different aspects. And not cramp with the picture elements who are used often.
So we can also work with the elements, wand symbolize also fire and spirited, cups water and sensitive, swords air and smart and coins earth and realistic.
But baroque/ romantic sonds interesting too, especially because they loved such mystic things.
haha, thats funny Skorpi, i have been thinking about very similar photos
I choose Strength and Ten of Cups
i'm still not in my home right no so not much from me at this time. But i like the ideas so far... especially working with the meaning of the cards not only with picture elements as you said Skorpi - that sounds great
and i thought also about something... this cards can be inverted, right? And the meanings could be inverted, that sound interesting to me

It's not much, but it's a start: I thougt the Fool in a modern world would be some kind of hitchhiker or street musican.
And those things right are some frame scribbles, I thought some clear Vector forms would fit.
skorpi: I would suggest giving him some kind of crazy homeless beard, or something to make him look more eccentric. Right now he looks too pretty.
Sorry I haven't posted anything yet guys, I've been doodling, but for the most part my job has been sucking the life out of me this last week. This is my last week of work though, so I'll have something soon.
So uh... bad news.
I didn't expect this semester to start off so busy, but it did, and I'm just not going to have the time to do this. I should have given you more notice, but I kept thinking that I would have a free weekend sometime that I could do it, but it's clear now that that's not going to happen.
I'm really sorry guys!
