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.

As regular Watchers of my page know (you know who you are and you know I appreciate every one of you!), I have been preparing my Lovecraft Grimoire pages for print into a limited edition volume. The process has been ongoing, resulting in a bit of a stretch here without new updates, but I will be taking care of that soon.

So, the Update:
I have secured some funding for the book to reach print. This is an important step in being able to produce the book the way I want and in a form that would make it worth it for people to pick up a copy. The printed volume will compile all of the pages of the Grimoire available on my page here, as well as those that have yet to be uploaded; each will be signed and numbered for a limited edition and will likely include an original piece of artwork. The initial print run for this limited edition will be less than 150 copies.

This is where you come in. In order to determine the size of this initial print run, I need to know who out there would be interested in purchasing a copy. Assuming the price was reasonable, how many of you would consider a purchase? And, secondarily, what would you WANT TO SEE in the finished volume and what would you expect? Would you prefer a RPG book format (which would sit nicely alongside your Call of Cthulhu manuals) or a book format that would more closely resemble an occult tome (and occupy a nice spot on your bookshelf with your Arkham House volumes)? Would you expect words from the author/illustrator, or a book that speaks only with the artwork?

Everyone who shares their (useful) thoughts and input will receive a mention on a special thanks list in the volume, so let's hear it!...

Neil Gaiman's The Sandman by AzrielMordecai
Neil Gaiman's The Sandman
 The Sandman, rendered with Pigma Micron pens and Pigma Brushes, Copic Markers, Sharpie Marker. 2014.

I sketched this piece originally in a notebook around 1996... a simple sketch layout in ballpoint pen on lined paper. Recently, while going through some of these older materials, I stumbled on the piece again and decided to revisit it. I didn't change much intentionally, keeping it in the same style I used then, but with more control and style. I even adhered to the original color notes I'd written on the sketch. I am pretty happy with the end result.

This piece has been SOLD, actually closing the deal within an hour of posting; a WIN for me, as far as I'm concerned. Thanks for all the interest.

Cthulhu for Cancer by AzrielMordecai
Cthulhu for Cancer
Cthulhu for Cancer.
This one-of-a-kind piece was created in honor of Breast Cancer awareness. All money made from the sale of this piece or from prints of this piece will go to help my sister, who is fighting breast cancer and whose strength has been commendable through the entire process. I'll take offers starting at $50 USD. Contact me for more info and feel free to share.

While I have never been the best brother in the world, I'm proud to say that my sister and I have become friends as we've grown up. If you see us today, it's impossible to believe that we barely ever got along as kids, but the truth is that seeing her fight this with incredible strength and courage has given me a new respect for her. If my drawings can help relieve some of the stress that she doesn't let anyone know she feels, then I feel like I have started to make up for being such a rotten kid.
