Knight (er, Prince?) of Wands

Air of Fire. (So, I based this on the Thoth Prince of Wands, which apparently maps more to the king of than the knight in other decks. Bah, I'll rename it if necessary. Have I just committed to merging the knight/king/prince card? Have to think about what a new 4th court card will be.)

 

Images, started with Oscar Isaacs, and the cat, then really wanted the cat, but... Llewyn Davis as a character isn't really Strength, and this card had a chariot drawn by a lion. Replaced that with a British "moggie" who apparently likes to sneak onto public transit. Pic was cropped, and decided not to photoshop in a tail, in deference to the ginger cat on my street who lost his tail last year. Added in background fire, beachscape & tulip from previous cards. Brought in carrot from 3 of wands, stylized as the rein. Lion, Salamander & 7-pointed star are new, specific to this card. Chess pattern, seen on Röhrig deck prince, pulled from a still of "Zero Zero". Was trying to find a body that was more open and fitted (or naked) than the Isaacs still. Got distracted by the Olympics. Sochi ring fail edited to be 3 circles + sun & moon Thoth imagery. Wanted something orange, say, a Dutch speed skater? That wand is a stylized Sven Kramer leg. The Phoenix (suggested by Thoth) is, a reference to another way I procrastinated, a certain abstract video game, um, with gems.
