Červená karkulka

2. února 2015 v 20:00
Červená Karkulka (czech name of Red Riding Hood) for Hanka, friend of mine and her Karkulčino Tajemství shop. Inspiration have come to me not only from the Red Riding Hood story, but also from Robert Jordan and his legend of Wolf brothers from his Wheel of Time monster serie (I highly recommend his work to them who still didnt read anything from this ultimate author of epic fantasy) so this is something about Red Riding Hood like a wolfbrother from old Manethern legend. :)

Tattoo design for Hugo

the sigil on the top is sigil of Lucifer, not so known but discovered nowdays and used by many bands and individuals, so you probably know it, but many, many years it was unknown. The centrum of the drawing is "Bounded" by dodecagram. right and left apex are extended like a symbol of man, left and right hands and left and right halfs of meaning, menispheres or whatever you would like to call it. The bottom apex is also extended than the upper one is shorter than others. It presents the clear donward. Shows to the ground what is symbol of Satan in many historical documents and also reminds the watchers of classic inverted pentagram which is inverted in the same direction.

While the dodecagram presents man like a living thing or soul, the skull in the middle highlights on inevitable end and circle of life. This aspect is also enchanted by the snake eating his own tail in the inverted symbol of endless what presents the paradox and the aspect that noone really know what's the matter of all living and dying despite all theories.

The snake also encircles two parts of moon phases, under it is the last one, full moon. These three phases presents the time and its influence on everything on Earth and Space. The last aspect which should be here or better have to be here is presented the nature. It reflect all the previous aspect and related all of it - I'm speaking about the branches growing from the time, endless snake man and spiritual meaning in the same time.

And...What Black metal means for you?

Now something really personal. I named this one like "And..what black metal means for you?" It is mixture of my feelings of black metal music and memories of some outstanding places where I was inspired to draw some of the aspects from the drawing.
I´m gonna print it in limited edition of 20 posters A2 size and will send it in hard paper boxes with number of print. If anyone´s interrested in, feel free to contact me via fb or email at moonrootart@gmail.com. It could be yours on your wall or at wall of someone closes to you who´s really into this black metal spirit.
I was inspired not only by places and music at all, but also by some concrete albums, which means really much for me. Cry of Silence - "Walking through The Eternal Tragedy", Forest Silence - "Philosophy of Winter", Burzum - "Hvis Lyset Tar Oss", Setherial - "Nord", Marblebog - "Forestheart" and Vietah - "Zorny Maroz"

Cover art for Worthless Lament/Kalmankantaja

2. prosince 2014 v 20:56
Cover art for upcomming stunning split album of Worthless Lament (Russia) and Kalmankantaja (Finland). All inspired by the songs and lyrics which're all about nightmares becoming alive, inability to fall asleep or wake up and the phase in the bed when you are really not able to recognize if you're still sleeping or all what's around is real. The colors of the photography will also seems much better when I'll take it in daylight, but anyway, here it is!
