Side-By-Side: The Tower
For Day 10 of Side by Side, I drew the Tower. People often ask how they might see this card in a positive aspect. The advice I’ve seen revolves around preparation and willingness to lead the change. The 1906 earthquake and fire was a clear design choice to represent the themes of DISASTER and REBUILDING. On the left, we have Fool and his family fleeing the crumbling buildings and fiery destruction. The 1906 disaster was not the first time San Francisco was leveled, nor would it be the last. Each time, people rose up from the disaster and rebuilt their lives on a stronger foundation.
