Noo Spinoolean Tarot - Page of Roses

Inspiration comes from funny places. I've been working on fleshing out the remaining suit cards for the Noo Tarot, focusing on Ankhs for the moment. After I posted the Four of Ankhs, I realized what today was so I decided to see if I could draw a groundhog and place it within the Noo Tarot universe. Roses was the obvious suit and the Page was the missing face card.

I drew this with the groundhog's shadow, but Punxsutawney Phil didn't see his shadow today, so I took it back out so as to be topical for the holiday. I liked the drawing with the shadow better -- even if it means a longer winter -- so both versions are presented here.
