Open until March 1st:

This piece (in the link at the bottom of this post) was a being in a dream that appeared for several nights. The best way I can describe this being is the spirit of freedom to leave the dogma of the Eastern Orthodox Church.

So the rules are simple:
1. One entry per person.
2. Must be Submitted by March 1st 2016.
3. Submit your original title for this piece below as a comment on this post.

The prize will be the signed high quality print, with your title written on the back, mailed anywhere in the world free of charge :)
(One winner, no runners-up!)

I am not sure if anyone would be interested, but I thought it would be appreciated by someone here! I generally give away my originals, unless they are ritual pieces that I use regularly. Have fun, hope to see some good entries!

Insert stream of expletives... I had the drawing rolled out and pressed under a stack of books. I spilled a glass of water on a good portion of it, and the colors have run in an unfortunate way. So it is not worth shipping. My apologies to anyone that may have been interested. It was a great piece to lose!

I'm sorry to read this. I thought the picture had a lot of interesting symbolism and actually felt it was a little inspirational too (I have been seriously thinking about picking up the paintbrush again for what seems like the first time in ages and doing some occult art but haven't done so yet). I also thought it was generous of you to offer it for free-that was cool.

Draw it again. :)

Do you do woodburning, witchpriest? That illustration would look amazing on a simple wooden plaque!

I am glad it inspired some people! I will try to draw it again, I did get a print quality photo before it was damaged *whew*. I will be doing some art in the slavic tradition (deities, mythological animals, baba yaga and the like) soon! I will post a thread in the art by the Spring Equinox :smile:

I have done some cool woodburning in the past! I will try to do some new stuff and post it when I can find the time :)

Fair warning, I am terrible with titles. "The Illuminator", as it reminds me of Lucifer bastardized by overlapping symbols of serpent/devil. Great work, btw, it's beautiful!

"The truth about the world, he said, is that anything is possible. Had you not seen it from birth and thereby bled it of its strangeness it would appear to you for what it is, a hat trick in a medicine show, a fevered dream, a trance bepopulate with chimeras having neither analogue nor precedent, an itinerant carnival, a migratory tentshow whose ultimate destination after many a pitch in many a mudded field is unspeakable and calamitous beyond reckoning." - Cormac McCarthy
