Seven of Swords by puimun Seven of Swords by puimun
Tarot. For more information about the deck and to see the rest of the cards: [link]

Seven of Swords - Escaping responsibility, making away with that which is not yours, uncertainty, keeping something to yourself, dishonor, being two-faced.

He hides his face behind a mask, shrouding his true nature, and he smirks in a rather satisfied way that he has managed to steal one of the swords that the Swan Guardian oversees. He thinks the Guardian is oblivious, but she is in fact watching him with one eye. "What have you got there? Shiny bauble! Shiny bright!" the blackbirds demand, drawn to the sullen gleam. He turns his back to them as well; for he is the cleverest Blackbird to have been able to draw this Sword from the Stone.

Medium: Watercolor
Size: 8.5x14 inches

the mask on this character reminds me of the masquerade scene in Labyrinth... I imagine you would love that movie also :)
I love the sense of curiosity standing beneath the courage and pride.
