I'm putting this as a forum topic because I don't want to bump the diaries off the front page and before I put more effort into making this a series, I want to see if there's any interest out there. I was perusing some art sites I frequent and saw some cool Tarot card designs. I thought that might be a cool idea for some art of my own, with a twist. I want to make Michigan coaches/players into Tarot cards. I know I won't be able to make them all fit, but the first one I thought of was Borges as "The Magician." Perhaps it's wishful thinking that this season will be magical, offensively.
Now, I'm not really into Tarot, so I did a little research and I think I can stretch it to work. Apparently, the Mythopoetic approach considers him as the following:
He represents the potential of a new adventure, chosen or thrust upon one.
A journey undertaken in daylight, in the Enlightenment tradition.
He brings things out of the darkness into the light.
Now, again with wishful thinking, but it kind of fits should we have a renaissance on offense. He was given the offensive players that were "thrust upon" him and made the best he could. Now we're hoping to see the new adventure that Hoke and company are bringing their players into the mix.
Anyway, I know it's a stretch, but I liked the whole idea enough to ask if others would like me to continue. I would not do a whole new diary series for them. I would just slide them into my wallpaper series whenever I finish one. Let me know if you would like to see more. Also, since I am less versed in this stuff, if anyone has good fits for future cards, I would welcome them. Saturday can't get here soon enough.
