Musician, artist, writer, makeup effects artist and a horror film expert based in Upstate New York. I also do a great deal of work in photo restoration and graphic arts and I've worked on different films in various capacities, including "Vicious Sweet" (providing additional special effects for zombie sequences), "She Kills" (as an actor) and the upcoming "Necro-Zombies From Outer Space" (as an actor). I've also been enlisted as the graphic designer for the awesome New York Motorhead tribute Stone Dead Forever. As a writer, I've received awards from the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and the Comstock Writers Group and am in the process of authoring an exhaustive encyclopedia of horror films. I'm currently preparing to begin character design work for the upcoming Quest for Infamy fantasy RPG video game, in addition to providing artwork for numerous bands, including the Iron Maiden tribute Powerslave and the Motorhead tribute Stone Dead Forever, both based in New York State.

Artistically, I am influenced by the work of Caravaggio, John Godward, William-Adolphe Bougeureau, Jim Lee, Neal Adams, Stephen Gammell and many others.

When not working on artwork, I can be found working with my band Suit of Sorrows. You can find out more information at and follow our projects, recordings, show announcements, updates, and more.

I'll be getting back to posting updates to the Lovecraft Grimoire here in the next couple of weeks, for those who are interested.

I recently came across the original thumbnail sketches I drew years back and was quite surprised by them... When I originally began the prop pages, I only needed a certain number, but in order to decide the pages I'd actually create for the project, I drew dozens of little thumbnail sketches on lined notebook paper, 9 per page for a grand total of five pages front and back and used these as exemplars. I had forgotten the amount of work that had gone into these designs, really, since I did not refer to them once the final choices were made. They were simply filed away in a box and forgotten about mostly until a couple of days ago.

If anyone is interested, I'll post them. I may revisit a few of these, actually, in the very near future. Time will tell.

Also, if you are interested in helping support the publication of the Lovecraft Grimoire in physical form, then please, (please!) share my official Facebook artpage ( on your social media sites. The more visitors and likes I have, the more support I can show exists to have this project done, and it makes me feel like people appreciate what I do, which makes me way more productive...

The Chronicles of Candor Promo by AzrielMordecai
The Chronicles of Candor Promo
The first time I did a comic project was the last time I did a comic project... until now. After over a decade, I've gotten involved in panel-to-panel art again and I'm doing it with the Mature Readers title The Chronicles of Candor, written by my Necrocasticon podcast costar Thomas Clark. Above is the uncolored cover for Issue #0. I will be taking on cover, interior art and illustrations for this project.
