Here’s some info about this card, from wikipedia:

Another view is that the mood of the card may be characterized as that of conquest. It represents a battle that can be won if the Querent has the willpower for it. The battle is usually an external one, with a clear goal and plan of action. Qualities needed to win the battle include self-reliance, righteousness, conviction and plain hard work. The steeds represent powerful forces, internal or external, that can be controlled to achieve the goal.

The following images are a collaboration between myself and a QTPOC poet/spoken word artist.  I took their portrait and gave them a packet that included a copy of their portrait, a sharpie and tracing paper and asked them to hand write some of their work around their portrait.  The text was completely up to them.  

I took that tracing paper, created a screen and screen printed that around the one of a kind print.  Julissa is the first of many to come.

For Sequel, iam8bit asked artists to create a piece for a fictitious sequel to an existing movie that never got a sequel. I chose Disney’s adaptation of The Rocketeer, which pit the all-American hero against the Nazis in 1938. For this imagined sequel, Cliff Secord must again don the Rocketeer moniker to fight off a Soviet threat that’s amassed an army of their own jet-packed soldiers.

This is an 18”x24” 3-color silkscreen, prints will be on sale at the show!
