Lifting the Veil
    "Look about you, Clarke. You see the mountain, and hill following after hill, as wave on wave, you see the woods and orchard, the fields of ripe corn, and the meadows reaching to the reed-beds by the river. You see me standing here beside you, and hear my voice; but I tell you that all these things—yes, from that star that has just shone out in the sky to the solid ground beneath our feet—I say that all these are but dreams and shadows; the shadows that hide the real world from our eyes. There is a real world, but it is beyond this glamour and this vision, beyond these 'chases in Arras, dreams in a career,' beyond them all as beyond a veil. I do not know whether any human being has ever lifted that veil; but I do know, Clarke, that you and I shall see it lifted this very night from before another's eyes. You may think this all strange nonsense; it may be strange, but it is true, and the ancients knew what lifting the veil means. They called it seeing the god Pan." 

- Dr. Raymond to his friend, Clarke [from Arthur Machen's "The Great God Pan"]


Art for the cover of a future release from Gehenna & Hinnom Books.  I won't say much about the content of the book except that it involves my favorite author, Arthur Machen, and so I've put together this very Machen-esque work.  Several key Machen tales are represented in this piece with the most obvious one being "The Great God Pan".  Helen Vaughn can be seen in the center just below the titular demon, and below her laying in a field before a ring of stones is the unnamed girl from "The White People".  In one hand she holds her infamous green book and in the other hand she clasps none other than the Black Seal from "The Novel of the Black Seal."  Diabolical, imp-like fairies and elementals from the Otherworld flutter about, while terrible visions of the dreaded little people who dwell beneath the earth can be glimpsed out of the swirling phantasmagoria of a young person's imagination gone awry.  

I'll definitely make sure to update you guys with all the info about the release once official announcements are made.  I'm really excited myself for it, but then I guess I'm a little biased.  :/

Corruption
"One necessary evil leads to another until one day you can't differentiate between what's necessary and what's merely expedient and when that happens, you're done.  You're a monster."
- Kelsey Grammar as Mayor Tom Kane (Boss)

"The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it."
- Albert Einstein


*To clarify, the character depicted is not supposed to be Trump, but rather a generic politician, though I have a pretty insane one I'm currently working on about Trump*

Bull Market
I guess there's no better time to post this piece than now... like right now... in the face of the market plunging over 1,800 points over the last two sessions (Friday and today), with the Dow seeing its steepest plunge since 2011, perhaps signaling what some economists have been suggesting for a while now: that the "bull market" is over, that stocks have been way overvalued for way too long, and that the dreaded correction has at last arrived. 

There's an intricate combination of factors which could have been avoided but the oligarchs and the politicians they own are so damn greedy that they can't see straight.  I won't go into all the gory details of what's triggered this (hopefully temporary) decline, but it mostly has to do with the Fed raising interest rates, the fact that so many businesses are loaded up to their eyeballs with debt and will have to pay even more interest on that debt, cutting into their profits, and also with the massive tax giveaway (to the richest elites and corporations in the country/world) that was recently passed in Congress and has forced the govt. to borrow tons of money which risks creating an oversupply of treasury bonds that will then devalue the bonds and the currency upon which they are based (USD) and risk inflation, etc.

Amidst all this uncertainty and potential turmoil, I can't help but recall an excellent documentary I watched years ago, called "Manufacturing Consent: Noam Chomsky and the Media", and a great quote about this borderline nightmarish fever dream of modern industrial civilization that most of us are living in... 

"The driving force of modern industrial civilization has been individual material gain, which is accepted as legitimate, even praiseworthy, on the grounds that private vices yield public benefits, in the classic formulation. Now, it has long been understood, very well, that a society that is based on this principle will destroy itself in time. It can only persist, with whatever suffering and injustice that it entails, as long as it is possible to pretend that the destructive forces that humans create are limited, that the world is an infinite resource, and that the world is an infinite garbage can."

Well, I think it's getting harder and harder for most of the people to pretend... and I fear that reality is going to assert itself sooner rather than later.

I really cannot stress enough just how scary these times are that we are living in -- when the 3 richest Americans have more money than the bottom 50% of the country*, when income inequality is the highest that it has been since right before the Great Depression**, and wages for the working & middle class remain virtually stagnant while the costs of everything else continues to rise.  I was in college when the sub-prime mortgage crisis sent the economy crashing back in 2008 - it had tremendously negative effects on my life and the lives of many of my friends and family members, effects that are felt to this very day. Thanks to the system of legalized bribery and corruption that defines our political structure, the government did very little to prevent future collapses.  The few gains that were made have since been mostly rolled back, repealed, or ignored, and the current administration has done everything in its power to undermine what little remains.  

The real estate bubble we're in right now very easily rivals the one that helped to create to the collapse in 2008, and the derivatives market is just as big as it was back then, too, while more wealth has been consolidated into the hands of fewer and fewer mega-banks, and working people are making less and less than they were before (in terms of purchasing power).  Lump on top of all that the fact that we have an administration of power-craving sociopaths more criminally corrupt than any other in U.S. history, with perhaps one of the most grotesque and disgusting living "human" beings at the helm. 

We're in a very bad place, friends.  Brace for impact.



Listening to:  "Beast" by Nico Vega


To elaborate on the illustration itself... really just a collage of various different politically-inclined projects I'm working on right now at different stages of completion, ranging from sketches to cleaner, more completed works.

Cut Off (COLORS)
I had the pleasure of being able to digitally color a really fantastic illustration called Cut Off that was originally drawn with graphite pencils by formerselves, a really, really talented artist with a gallery full of awesome and interesting works of art.  Make sure to check out the original B/W drawing of "Cut Off" in her gallery along with all her many other spectacular works.  And if you haven't checked her stuff out before, you'll be very glad that you did! :D

Multiversal Fisher
My depiction of a Multiversal Fisher, one of many, many, MANY incredibly cool creatures created by the amazingly talented KingOvRats.  If you've never checked out his gallery before then you must do so NOW -- you will not be disappointed.  He has quite an astonishing (and vast) collection of monstrosities and other designs available for your eyes to feast upon.

Finally, I'm back up and running and can get back to the drawing board now that I've got a new laptop (since my old one fried).  I'm hopeful that I'll be able to salvage the data that was lost on my old hard drive. The good news is I had most of the important stuff all backed up in various places (jump drives, e-mails, web storage, etc.).

Anyway, that also means I can get back to participating more in the world of Deviantart.

To start off, I'd like to give a shout out to a very talented artist :iconeliebongrand: who is currently putting on a raffle in honor of reaching 300 watchers. Congrats to Elie - his art is absolutely stunning and all those watchers are very well deserved. Feel free to check Elie's gallery out for yourselves, I've included a small sampling of his work right below...

  [CLOSED] 300 WATCHER RAFFLEWINNERS
Congratulations to LeilaAscariz (highest score) and WendigoMoon (random number) for winning this raffle! Thank you to everyone who participated. I'll definitely have other raffles in the future.

300 WATCHER RAFFLE
Hi everyone,
Lately, I’ve reached 300 watchers. And what do people do when they reach 300 watchers? They do a raffle! Yeah!!! *clap* *clap* (allow me to add these so we can have some atmosphere here).
Thanks to all of you guys for the support. I know many of us try to make a living from our art and therefore we need people to see it and comment on it. A raffle seems like an honest way to exchange my drawings for your help to get me more exposure. Except that it won't be all about luck this time.
PRIZES
From what I’ve seen, people randomly choose a winner. It’s what a raffle is after all. But it’s not good enough. I


On a more personal note, I'd also like to announce - in honor of having a laptop again - that I'll be taking 3 requests between now and the end of 2017 for full body character/creature designs in b/w with tones (though I may end up doing them in color if I really like the character). All you have to do is (A) be a watcher and (B) describe the original character you'd like to request drawn in a comment on a separate journal I've created which you can visit here:

Three request slots openI'd like to announce - in honor of having a laptop again - that I'll be taking 3 requests between now and the end of 2017 for full body character/creature designs in b/w with tones (though I may end up doing them in color if I really like the character).

All you have to do is (A) be a watcher and (B) describe the original character that you'd like to see me draw in a comment on this journal. Also, if you already have a character drawn that you would like to see done in my style, that's cool, too. Also know that this will not be a first come, first served thing either. I will select the 3 OCs that intrigue me the most and will draw them for you, their creator. 
Please remember to describe in detail and/or provide various visual references for the original character that you'd like to request me to draw. Eve


**Please describe in detail and/or provide various visual references for the original character that you'd like to request me to draw. I will select 3 that interest me most and will draw them for you. Every little detail helps.**

Finally, I'll conclude this journal by mentioning that I plan to open up for commissions in January 2018 via some platform like Fiverr or Artists&Clients if that is of interest to any of you. Thanks for checking out this journal and again, please pay a visit to Elie's gallery and check out their raffle.

The world is a vast labyrinth and in it there are many turns and corners... some which can lead to disaster... and others which can lead to far worse...

It seems, dear traveler, that you have made one of these turns, and now find yourself in my little dark corner of the world. Few have made the voyage here, and far fewer have made the journey back with their sanity still intact, for what lurks here is beyond the uncanny... beyond the phantasmagoric... prepare your eyes and beware, poor soul. You gaze upon these works at your own peril...

P.S. You can follow me and find more of my art on Instagram

And thanks for checking out my page! :D
