Happy Squirrel Tarot Card.. or.. The Little Pyromaniac.
The Happy Squirrel tarot card has been on my to-do list for a very long time. You remember The Happy Squirrel card right? Mentioned in The Simpsons episode with a fortune teller showing Lisa’s future, her wedding that ended in disaster, yadda yadda. Well, when I wanted to dive into the tarot card series, I knew The Happy Squirrel would have to be included as well. I kept putting it off though because I hadn’t quite figured out how I wanted to tackle my version of The Happy Squirrel card. Why is The Happy Squirrel happy? No one really knows!
I finally finished painting it yesterday though! Here’s some progress shots and the final painting (:
The Happy Squirrel tarot makes me happy. I’m not sure why. Maybe because it’s a squirrel. And that it’s cute. And happy. Or maybe because it’s a creepy pyromaniac. Can you imagine the havoc squirrels would cause if they knew how to work matches? It would be horrible and fantastic at the same time.
Ah, I love squirrels.
