the priest's birthday party
In tarot, there used to a card called the Pope, now it’s know as the High Priest or the Hierophant. He is likely a beloved teacher, therapist, counsellor, advisor, or sponsor in your life. The Hierophant has the role as spiritual guide, wise and soothing and its placement at 5 in the Tarot represents the number of the senses: sight, hearing, taste, feeling, and smell.
The Hierophant warns against being too stubborn, especially in matters of theology or ethics. When things are going very wrong in the world, the Hierophant is the one who wades in, quiets the panic, and offers good, practical advice. He symbolizes a connection to the divine, which answers with a very human voice, never oblique or mysterious. The High Priest symbolizes our ability to listen when spoken to and to talk to the heart of others so that they by return listen to us.
We have had quite a few musical events in the escargot. The first one was a balmy June night that serenaded us from our open windows. Set on sleeping I laid in bed until the beautiful sounds woke Amaya who asked to “see” the music. There was her beloved Saxophone player and many others seated in a circle playing songs. A bearded man strummed the guitar, blew on the harmonica and sang beautiful songs. “That is the priest!” my husband nudged me with a wink, “look he has a South Park guitar strap,” we laughed at the irony thinking his parish must be a lot of fun. He crooned a Spanish song and delighted our Mexican neighbor, she shook maracas in sync, a wide smile across her face. In his own fashion he brought everyone together in peace and harmony, the musical get together was his idea. All of the world is created through sound and vibration and The Hierophant represents sound on every level which can help facilitate healing and inspire creativity.
This multi-talented priest has by far nicest house in the neighbourhood, one that he built himself on Mondays he told me the next day when I brought him a colander full of lettuce greens from our garden. A stone peaked doorway trellised with hanging grapevines lead to high vaulted ceilings with ancient wood beams inside. On the stove bubbled a tagine filled with savoury meats and vegetables for his Scouts planning meeting. Old earthenware crocks were filled with fermenting goodies and the table was filled with jars of pickled garlic, roasted bell peppers, and olive tapanade that had made. He showed me a secret buffet cabinet that opens through velvet curtains to his passage to the house next door. In the escargot, in ancient times, each house had a secret passage so the residents could all be connected and make their way, in case of danger, to the pulpit of the church across the street where immunity was found.
It’s the birthday of “el padre” my mexican friend told me, come over, everyone is invited. I found a wood carving of a saint that I knew he would love and turned the corner to his house. Already 50 people were there seated at long tables. Drinks were being poured, people were diving into his tasty olive spreads and talking gregariously. For his own birthday he made an enormous couscous with lamb, vegetables and hot spices for everyone and he made me take home four overflowing containers when we went home. (he also gave me 10 kilos of the leftover cuts of meat and bones to make "pot au feu" this winter-- all of it went into the deep freezer). I offered him some fennel bulbs from the garden and a pot of rose petal jam as I it's a tradition in our community never to give a bowl back empty, always fill it with something that you and your neighbor will love.
In my attempt to improve at drawing backgrounds, or rather environments, I'm playing with a new concept. The figure as background. Most comic artist put a lot of emphasis on learning figure drawing, since humanoid figures are the predominant driver of most storytelling.
Often, it comes at the expense of taking the time to refine props (Phones, vehicles, utensils) and background elements (Buildings, trees, mountain ranges.) I still intend to push myself at including well-drawn props and background elements in more pages, I also realize I'm ignoring a powerful tool that I already have at my disposal.
The Human Figure itself. A car or building becomes far more convincing when surrounded by 3-5 human figures, interacting with it. Placing various figures thought a composition allows them to become background elements unto themselves. Instead of a street scene with 8 parked cars, maybe you only have to draw 2-3 and have the rest filled in by human figures walking in front of or interact with other environmental elements.
This also increases the sense of depth in a scene IF the various figures are drawn to the appropriate scale.
Yeah, drawing a crown scene might feel like a pain in the ass, but imaging if you're drawing a street and you had to fill up that street w/ cars instead of people. Some artists are great at vehicle drawing and would gladly knock out a bunch of cars. I am not one of those… YET! But a bunch of non-descript background figures, I can handle that.
Or a Party scene in a ballroom, you've basically got to decorate any part if the ballroom not filled w/ humans. If you've got a bunch of people, then it just becomes about well-placed accents. An ice sculpture here, a flower display there, a buffet table off to the sides, some elegant chandeliers. You get the point.
I'm sharing these ideas not as an instruction manual or rules to operate by. I don't have this stuff all figured out by any means. I'm exploring a lot of artistic ground that I shied away from in the past. I thought it might be amusing to include the thoughts and wandering that are popping into my head on the journey.
