Collaboration

As a freelance illustrator, I specialize in images and graphics related to the occult and esoteric. I do digital images as well as traditional art. If you are a publisher looking for good images, an author looking for illustrations of his work, signs, seals, sigils, charts, diagrams, you have a website, forum or blog you want to personalize, everything occult in nature, I can provide it. My fees are moderate and I have a special offer for authors and publishers: No money. I accept books! My contact address is

The Book of Abrasax

I have the honor of working with one of the most promising magicians on the web on his next project: Michael Cecchetelli is cooking up his Book of Abrasax and has asked lil ol me to do the illustrations. 

If his next volume is as valuable as his Crossed Keys, I can barely wait!

The illustrations range from Gnostic imagery to Coptic seals of the late Antiquity. One of the designs I managed to redo completely is the seal-portrait of Gabriel found in Rossi s Gnostic tract against the powers of evil, published by Kropp and republished by Smith and Meyer (Ancient Christian Magic, Princeton University Press, 1999) to be found on page 146.

Seals of the Seven Angels

These seals were done by me to reconstruct the figures attributed to the seven angels found in Aryeh Kaplan s Sefer Yetsirah, fig.44, page 171. They are taken from the treatise Shoshan Yesod Olam, circa 1727.

 Raphael


Gabriel





 Samael


 
 Michael


 
Tzidkiel



 
Anathiel



Kaptziel


 I suspect the angels have planetary attributions, the most obvious being the days of the week: Raphael-Sunday (Sun), Gabriel-Monday (Moon), Samael-Tuesday (Mars) and so forth until Kaptziel (Saturn, Saturday).

These images are made by me, so if you want to use them in private, do so of your own accord, and if you want to use them publicly, please give proper credit either to me by linking my blog  or my e-mail address.
