Amduscias’ New Follower

Amduscias’ New Follower by luvataciousskull on DeviantArt

Amduscias is a demon and a powerful Grand Duke of hell with 29 Legions to his name and is the demon most connected to music with Goetia’s attributing him to bending music to his will.

His new follower has a bit of the same power.

On her right arm are the symbols for Cinder, Penetrate, and then the Sigil of Amduscias, followed by the words “Ave Satanas” on her wrist. On her left arm are the words “Music is Life”, the symbol for Sulfur, and the Sigil of Lucifer.

Her shirt says “In Nomine Dei Nostri Satanas”, a shorter version of the Latin Phrase “In nomine Dei nostri Satanas Luciferi Excelsi” (In the name of our God, Satan Lucifer of the Most High). On her stomach is “For thi is the glory.” Both are references to “Ora Pro Nobis Lucifer” by Behemoth. “Thi” is a bit of a play on words: The actual words are “For thine is the glory.” Since it leads to her thigh, I think you get the rest.

Dancing Ferret – 20th Anniversary Poster

Dancing Ferret - 20th Anniversary Poster

Dancing Ferret is having a big 20th Anniversary show at The Trocadero, and I was tapped to do the artwork for the event. It was flattering to get to do the piece, and I had a good time doing it. It was a pretty interesting request: Draw a ferret looking rather dapper with two hot goth girls with him. Sounds good to me!

The show features Covenant, Ego Likeness, Carfax Abbey, The Labrynth, The Wandering Cellist, Samantha Diaz. Guest vocalists Rodney Anonymous (The Dead Milkmen), Stacey Campbell (Spider Lillies), Andy Deane (Bella Morte), Jeff Diehm (The Last Dance), Alex Reed (ThouShaltNot) will all be making appearances, too!

The Art Show that Never Happened

Back in October, I was excited about getting another art show at that coffee shop that hosted my last one. I was nervous and because of a hectic year and I pushed it back from September to October. That wound up being a mistake because they wound up going out of business right before my show was supposed to go out. To make matters worse, I found out the day they were closing. The silver lining was that I hadn’t invested in getting any prints or frames yet.

I wound up creating a lot of new art, and while that isn’t this post, I did create some awesome flyers. I had two different names for my show and I had started work on the flyers before I got the news. The flyers featured new pieces of art.

This is Your Life Flyer

This was the original name of the show. I had the idea to call it this after the Dio tribute album I was listening to, as well as the name of the last song Ronnie James Dio recorded before he passed. The lyrics to “This is Your Life” basically are about doing what you love because it is YOUR life.

Unarmed Black Male

This WAS going to be the actual name of the show. I decided to all it this, largely because I’m just sick of term being used as a catch-all for black males. Its gotten to the point, which you may have seen in my feed earlier, that instead of just being me and being judged for what I can do, that I’m just a victim. I decided to just give it the name “Unarmed Black Male” in part to just fuck with everyone who saw the flyer and because I wanted to take it back.

Creative 365: Best of December

The Creative 365 project is me doing everything I can to do something amazing and creative every single day for a year! Every month, I plan on posting the best pieces from it for you here!

Of all the months in this project, December was the hardest. I was working on a bunch of different commissions at the start of the month, along with a full-time job, and that left little time to do something for myself or to just relax. Even after all the digital illustrations, it was tough for me to sit-down and start illustrating again at my desk. By Christmas Eve I had built my new desk, which really inspired me to draw like crazy!

November saw a lot of drawing on a tablet since I was trying to expand my skills in digital-only illustration. Other than that, I had a few designs and went on a trip.

After spending an entire weekend prepping for the art show non-stop, I wound up spending most of September pushing my creative boundaries. I had a photo shoot with Jernike and came up with some neat illustrations and designs. I even did a commissioned posted for a Mentalist.

August wound up being a very odd month. While still doing what I could creatively, the month wound up leading to a rush for my art show, which I needed to get together in only 2 weeks!

It was a month of experimentation and pushing new limits. We lost of Jeff Hanneman of Slayer, Philadelphia decided to install more cameras, and I decided to motivate myself to create some of the best work I’ve done to date.

I wound up attempting a redesign of Model Mayhem, experimenting with mixed-media, and a few typography exercises. All in all, it was a pretty solid month.
