Very impressive. The image has a very cinematic quality that reminds me of the movie Legend. I expect to see movement from among the tr...

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 I 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.

On DeviantArt, I am a contributor for :iconsci-fan-horror:. Check out the group and join for some great art. AdditionallyCertified Stock by CelticStrm-Stock by CelticStrm-Stock. For Stock material, check out the "STOCK" folder in my gallery by clicking on the "Gallery" tab at the top of the page.

When I'm working on any of these projects, I listen to any of the following: 69 Eyes, Divinity Destroyed, Nightwish, The Band, The Misfits, Christian Death, The Doors, Therion, Motorhead, Frank Zappa... and much, much more.

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!...

Starting earlier this week, I announced on my Facebook page (www.facebook.com/azriel.mordec… that through May 18, I would be contributing half of all the money I make from any prints sold through my DeviantART page to help the fight against autism. I have decided to do this to commemorate my return to the stage after a yearlong absence; on May 18, I join my mates in Rev-33 for a performance at an autism benefit in Liverpool, New York at Mac’s Bad Art Bar. Proceeds for that event are going to benefit the Beatrice and Samuel A. Seaver Foundation, benefactors of the Seaver Autism Center in New York City, to which I will also be making my donation.

I don’t personally have any direct affect on my life from autism, but I have several friends whose children are affected and believe that this is a good cause to help. I have met some great and talented children who are autistic and believe that they deserve every bit of the support they can get.

I encourage other artists to consider using some of their earnings to help others when they can. I know, as much as others, that times are hard nowadays and that it’s not always easy to help others, but I remind myself that when times are hard for me, it is even harder on charities and organizations that help others. Without the support of people like you and I, many of these places would not exist.

I personally feel that, as artists, to be able to create something from our own hands where nothing once existed and then generate something from that that can, in turn, help others is the ultimate expression of the power of art. It can change the world, one piece at a time, and we artists have the ability to guide that growth.

So, please spread the word, and if you are so inclined, share a link to my page (azrielmordecai.deviantart.com/… on your media networks to let people know that they can help a good cause, help children and do something good without ever getting out of their chair. And they get a nice piece of art as a bonus for helping others. If other artists choose to do something like I am doing, I encourage you to share in the comments section.
