Hooray! Here’s the third Hannibal tarot card! After the Fool and the Magician, I chose to portray Bedelia DuMaurier (played by the wonderful Gillian Anderson) as the High Priestess, a card closely related to knowledge and meditation. It seemed like a good choice to represent the nature of this beautiful psychiatrist. The High Priestess also symbolizes wisdom, serenity, great intuition, mystical vision, introspection and otherworldliness.
New sketch inspired by a promo image of Hannibal ‘s next episode, Su-zakana.
I sincerely don’t know what to think about it. Are Hannibal and Will going to restore their collaboration? Is Hannibal trying to threaten Will? Is he just comforting his former friend?
In any case, it seems that they are going to be very close to each other in the next episodes.
The title of this drawing is an Italian musical term that describes when several players in a group are to play exactly the same notes within their written part, as opposed to splitting simultaneous notes among themselves.
The card can mean that a manipulator is floating around, usually if it’s reversed. He may be a beneficent guide, but he does not necessarily have our best interests in mind. He may also represent the querent’s ego or self-awareness. He can also represent the intoxication of power, both good and bad. (Wikipedia)
I’ve finally finished the second Hannibal tarot card. I chose to draw Hannibal Lecter as the Magician, a very active and powerful card, that follows the Fool (here’s my version of this card) and usually symbolizes the whole human potential: persuasiveness, diplomacy, genius, craftiness, but also lie, deceit, ambiguity, lack of moral scruples and cruel manipulation.
New sketch, inspired by this wonderful song by Patrick Cassidy. It first appeared in Ridley Scott’s Hannibal (2001), but it has been also used in the last scene of the first season finale of NBC’s Hannibal.
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.
Illustrator? Costume designer? Writer? Set designer? Reporter? Quite confused.
I'm 25 years old, I live in Rome and I studied costume design, set design and prop design. Just to realize how desperately I liked drawing comics or writing articles too.
One life is not enough.
