How awesome would a Silmarillion-themed card deck be?
This card features Manwe, Vala of the wind, and Ulmo, Vala of the sea, because the king of hearts represents a loving man tempered with wisdom.
The assignment was to create four cards, each representing either sex, drugs, or rock and roll. So this is my 'sex' card, and, unfortunately, sex can sometimes be more about obsession than anything else. These guys sometimes forget everything due to an obsession with their own realms, but they're still inevitably bound to one another and the fate of the world.
