Some "art" for a recent musical project. It's actually an extensively photoshopped picture of a Nabatean god-block.

In this age, there are peoples, & there are rules -- woods, cities & dark places. Paths, & unchartable territories, milestones & will-o'-the-wisps. The races of Earth need not only their rules, but also the wilderness & its terrors. The priests and the sorcerers need each other, if only because in a previous age, they were one & the same.

The subject is the chief heresiarch of the Syncretist Church of Polygnosticism, the world's smallest religion, & the founder of the philosophical doctrine known as reversed solipsism. He is the only openly occult member of his secret brotherhood (now dormant). The subject has a wicked pack of cards, basic understanding of Hermetic & Gnostic philosophical systems, & an ambivalent relationship with the deities of at least seven different pantheons. Indeed, he feels uncomfortable with all of the World's great Religions.
