The above Artwork depicts a character named Dolcetta, who is featured in a comic, entitled, The Sacrifice Of Gigi, which can be found on the ‘Erotic Mad Science website.’ Should you want to see the finished Artwork in full on the Erotic Mad Science Website, Please Click Here.

Dolcetta’s name is derived from Dolcett, which has become a term for an extremely dark fetish involving cannibalism. However, in many an ancient myth, the motif of cannibalism symbolically represents the process of time, such as the Hindu/Tantric Goddess of time, named, Kali, who has cannibalistic tendencies. (The symbolic usage of cannibalism is not literal.)

Or the ancient Greek myth about the God of time called Chronos who eats his own children, etc, let alone that of consuming the body of Christ. (A preparatory quick A5 sketch for the finished A4 Artwork of Dolcetta/Furcas can be found below.)

As the Roman poet Ovid would say, “Tempus Edax Rrerum,” which means, “Time that devours all things;” you also have, “Tempus Omnia quæ devoratrix.”

My symbolic alchemy depiction of Dolcetta refers to the Succubus archetype of the Fallen Anima, named, Furcas who is the only spirit whom is associated with the planetary sphere of Saturn in the classical Goetia.

The Roman God named Saturn was originally based upon the ancient Greek God Chronos. (Another preparatory quick A5 sketch version for the A4 Artwork of Dolcetta/Furcas can be found below.)

 

It is said that the conjuration of Furcas inspires Philosophy, Astronomy (Astrology [Zodiac ages] to some authors), Rhetoric, Logic, Chiromancy and Pyromancy. (The etymology of the name Furcas may have been derived from the Latin word furca, meaning fork, or from Greco-Roman also meaning a sepulchre.)

The classical Goetia image of Furcas, depicts an Old Father Time archetype of the deified Animus holding a fork (trident) or a sharp (scythe) knife/sword, who manifests riding a horse, which may have originally been an Eight-Legged-Mare.

My depiction of Dolcetta/Furcas has her pulling the ‘pony’-tail of another female character in the comic, named, Gigi who is willingly sacrificing her (Zodiac age) life, while Dolcetta/Furcas holds her sacrificial blade.

Some would interpret the name of Gigi as being of similarity to an old English nickname, for a racehorse, as in Gee-Gee, as well as referring to the letter ‘G’ of a ‘Crossbones’ Gebo Rune and the Hebrew letter, Gimel.

You also have the 1944 French novel, entitled Gigi by the French writer Colette. The novel focuses on Gigi, who is a young Parisian girl being groomed for a career as a juicy sopping wet courtesan.

She eventually enters into a Tantric relationship with a wealthy cultured man, named, Gaston who falls in love with Gigi and eventually marries her.

Colette’s novel could otherwise be surrealistically reinterpreted of symbolic alchemy, where you have a young Parisian girl being groomed as a sacrificial dish, along with other courtesan cannibal dishes within Dolcetta’s sepulchre of a Kalachakra Zodiac kitchen for the likes of Gastronomic, Gaston.

Image result for goddess kali film tv series

The character of Gaston can be seen as a Freemason, who desires  to consume Gee-Gee, when he realises, she is his (G) Anima whom weaves his experience of TARDIS time.

But it is Dolcetta/Furcas, who as Kali reveals to ‘Old Man’ Gaston that he can consume a Zodiac age of a time just like Chronos, rather than being eaten by it; for the process of time is indivisible to consciousness, they are one and the same. Time is a matter of perception within your experiential Maya reality of a Matrix TV show.

As mentioned, The Dolcetta comic and other comics can be found on the Erotic Mad Science Website.

FAUSTIAN PEN SKETCH 1

Posted in Art, Chaos Magic, Comics, Ghost, Goetia Girls, Goth Girls, Occultism, Sex Magic, Shamanism, Sorcery, Succubus, Surrealism, Witchcraft with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 27, 2018 by FAUSTUS CROW

The above Artwork is a ‘quick Pen Sketch’ of a ‘Fallen Anima’ emanation, named Barueli or Baruela, on A5 cartridge paper.

“Barueli: The mistress of all Arts. She manifests as an Artist’s model and comes wearing an Artist’s frock. She can teach a Truderer more in a moment than all the master Artists of the world combined could accomplish in twenty years. She must be forcibly invoked three times.”

The ‘Animus’ version is listed as Baruel in the Faustian grimoire, entitled the, Threefold Coercion of Hell, also called, Cabalae nigrae, Magiae naturalis et innaturalis, which is otherwise known as the Black Raven.

The Black Raven was said to have been authored by Johannes Faust. The seal for Baruel is below, which was derived from the Black Raven.

Classical description: “Baruel: The master of all Arts. He manifests as a master workman and comes wearing an apron. He can teach a magician more in a moment than all the master workmen of the world combined could accomplish in twenty years. He must be invoked three times.” 

The conjuring Faustian Artist takes on the acting role of the Artist Baruel, which he assumes as his Performance Art guise. While seeing himself as Baruel, he then conjures up the Succubus Art Muse Barueli amidst his Triangle Of Art imagination as his Fallen Anima of an Art model. You then have a Yab-Yum Tantric union, which will become as a three-dimensional interactive reality within a lucid dream.

NOTE: Baruel may be referring to Augustin Barruel (October 2, 1741 – October 5, 1820) who was a French publicist and Jesuit priest.

He is now mostly known for setting forth the conspiracy theory involving the Bavarian Illuminati and the Jacobins in his book Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism (original title Mémoires pour servir à l’Histoire du Jacobinisme) published in 1797.

In short, Barruel wrote that the French Revolution was planned and executed by the secret societies. If Barruel was an Artist, he might of created a groundbreaking bandes dessinées about his conspiracy theory, involving a female protagonist. 

As an Artist, Baruel can be equated with a whole host of Artists, such as, for example, Jean-Claude Forest, who was born in Le Perreux-sur-Marne, a Paris suburb. After graduating from the Paris School of Design in the early 1950’s, he immediately began working as an illustrator.

Forest became world famous when he conjured up an erotic science fiction Art Muse to Mantra name, Barbarella. His bandes dessinées about Barbarella, was originally published in France in V Magazine in 1962.

Barbarella was an immediate bestseller and was soon translated into a dozen languages. In 1967 it was adapted by Terry Southern and Roger Vadim and made into a major motion picture, with Forest acting as design consultant.

OCCULT ART NOT PORN!

The occult Arts or otherwise termed magical Arts use techniques many a Faustian Artist will recognise. This is because Art and sorcery are basically one and the same practice. When an Artist conjures up an idea for a character amidst his or her imagination, which is then visualised, in order create an image of the manifest vision as a painting, he/she is essentially practicing Magic.

This is more so the case when the meditative state of creative intensity leads to the inducement of a lucid dream, wherein the created two dimensional image manifests as a three dimensional interactive reality within the dream. Upon awakening, the Artist might even observe concordant synchronicities, whose symbolism reflects back the symbolic stimuli of the dream, which had been initially conjured up by his/her Artwork.

However, the Art world has over time developed a disdain for anything to do with occultism, which does not see Art and the practice of Magic as being the same. Art has become a product, a commodity, nothing more than that. (The Art world is heavily controlled from the top down, whose elitists dictate what is considered to be Art, and what is not Art.)

To a degree, this is understandable since many an occultist often becomes embroiled with a religious sentiment, which has nothing to do with Magic/Art, who dogmatically distance themselves from Art as being a quite separate and of little importance.

The same can be said of the Arts, which presently has a dogmatic emphasis on the brand of the abstract.

Whereas the symbolic expression of occultism tends to be rather morbid of gothic branding, which in the main, is due to an entrenched medieval mind-set. (Don’t get me wrong here, I like, and employ the symbolism; but not of overall branding!)

The medieval mind-set has systematically negated sexuality out of the symbolic paradigm to make nigh celibate in accordance with its religious indoctrination.

When sexuality enters into the occult formula, it is usually seen to be malign of a perceived Satanic influence. This is very much the case when female entities are mentioned, whose conjurations are habitually termed as being occult porn.

When the word pornography is utilised by politically correct mind-sets it is usually used as a loaded means to trash what it is applied to, of tar and feathering, since porn solely concerns its self with meaningless Hentai copulations.

Those who castigate the Artistic conjuration of female entities as being occult porn quaintly forget, or should I say, ignore the fact, that their male archetypes have been conjured down the indoctrinated ages by numerous occult practitioners for the express purpose of sexually exploring their psyches. For example, Aleister Crowley was bisexual of orientation, whose conjurations of the all male archetypes listed in the Goetia, he had ‘illustrated’ having huge erections.

Suffice to say my Artwork is usually termed as being occult porn by traditionalist occultists, who in the main dogmatically practice religion, not Magic/Art. Nor is my Art primarily gothic of style, which is commonly associated with the occult; this confuses the branded clique. If it was to be pigeonholed at all, it could be construed as being Pop-Surrealist, which is due to the infernal underground comic art style of the Artwork using themes from popular culture.

As for the emphasis upon the female form, it is to do with illustrating various archetypes of the Fallen Anima.

The Anima is a female archetype residing within the heterosexual male psyche, which is conjured up amidst the Triangle Of Art imagination, whenever a male visualises his idea of a perfect female partner, or even one to avoid, etc. The Anima influences his attraction to those women he seeks to become intimately involved with, who reflect back how he sees himself of an internal-self-image, such as a Witcher, for example.

The counterpart of the Anima, is the Animus residing within a heterosexual female psyche, which influences her choice of those males she seeks to become involved with. Her male partners also reflect back how she sees herself deep down, who might see herself as a Sorceress.

When a man or woman falls in love at first sight it is due to the unconscious influence of their Anima and Animus being conjured up within their psyches. Those of a different sexual orientation reverse the symbolism in accordance with their respective natures.

The Anima and Animus are not quaint concepts; nor are they part of some new-age fundamentalist pseudo-ideology. The Anima and Animus are psychological realities, which are an expression of your biological hard-wiring; it is basic nature.

What is intriguing is that the grimoires, whether ancient or modern have an overriding gender fixation upon the deified Animus, made as a patriarchal God and Devil along with their all male pantheon of Angels and Demons, which you could otherwise term as being Playgirl grimoires.

The Playgirl grimoires primarily describe male archetypes of the deified Animus, which as mentioned, reside within the female psyche. In other words the deified Animus, made as a God and Devil is the patriarchal creation of woman, who to dally with the Beta and Alpha male archetypes of her monotheistic Animus manifesting as machismo Angels and butch Demons, you can aptly term as being Incubi.

The male archetypes can be otherwise seen as being role-models by a conjuring male Artist who assumes their guises to act out, when to engage in performance Art, or to imagine assuming their daemonic Avatars, while drawing/painting their (seals/sigils) characters.

A shaman likewise does the same when accessing hypnagogic trance, who then becomes the conjured archetype within a lucid dream, somewhat like becoming a character in a (virtual reality) video game.

However, each of the male archetypes the shaman assumes as his (magical-persona) Avatar would be coupled with a corresponding female archetype of his Anima.

(A Tibetan Buddhist [Hindu or Tantric] would term the Anima as being Shakti, whose energetic [Succubus] emanations are called Dakinis, and each Dakini is coupled with a [Avatar] raging Buddha.)

For example, let’s say we have a heterosexual male Artist who is drawing the video game character of the Witcher, who associates the Witcher with a shaman. The shamans were once many, until the ascendancy of the (Eternal Flame) deified Animus cults started to systematically eradicate them; whereupon there are now only a few.

The Artist’s creative intensity of a meditative focus is introverted into his dreams, which is sexually empowered by the Witcher’s intimate interaction with his female counterpart named, Yennefer.

Image result for the witcher yennefer

Or that of other female characters, such as the (Succubi) Succubae, having varying (mutagen) Muse abilities, the Witcher becomes entwined with in his shamanic story of a hero’s journey. But the Art Muses are arranged around a central Art Muse, who is their Anima Queen.

The Artist experiences assuming the daemonic Witcher Avatar within a lucid dream, who will find that the dream domain he consciously accesses is represented by Yennefer. It is she and other female characters who personify the sorceress power of his Anima dream.

When you have a gender fixated paradigm it will have an underlying sexual orientation, which cannot be denied, even if you attempt to cut sexuality out of the symbolic equation.

Sex has been cut out of the patriarchal symbolic paradigm in order to negate you seeing the underlying sexual orientation behind the focus upon the deified Animus.

One of the grimoires, which describes just a few female spirits out of seventy-two of number is the Goetia. However the female spirits the Goetia depicts are described as being actually androgynous male entities in hermaphrodite disguise, or if you prefer, they are fluid of Hollywood gender politics, the feminist extremists presently espouse, while battering the Anima.

The extremist feminists are not saying anything too dissimilar to what orthodox Judaism, right-wing fundamentalist Christianity or Whahibist Islam have said concerning the Anima, which has been entirely castigated out of the symbolic paradigm as the Fallen.

It is essentially mass thought-control, which specifically targets the Anima within the male psyche and in turn targetting his sexuality. You could hypothesise of a science fiction scenario that its hidden agenda is population-control. Whether it is cyclic of nature, or that of human wrought witchery can be considered as being a mystery.

Although when to science fiction observe that the Biblical Hell-fire imprisonment of the psyche is losing its hold, it now also involves alchemical practices being employed.

You have the dumping of sodium fluoride, fluorosilicic acid, and sodium fluorosilicate into the public water supply, along with it being added to the food in league with GMO Soya.

They are also considering putting lithium into the public water supply, which will put an inane smile on your face.

But it appears that lithium and other metals are being introduced into the environment via chem-trails, etc. You can thereby gather it is very likely being engineered by the all too human, which is the real porn.

At one time during the dark ages of the Witcher the numbers of your ancestors were kept down by natural illnesses, various false-flag instigated religious wars, as well as being systematically programmed to believe, that any untoward thought not allowed by the Animus fixated Playgirl scriptures, would consign them to being eternally damned, within the fiery depths of Hell.

Now, during the science fiction era, many a male are being media programmed to believe that any considered politically incorrect thoughts they might have indicates that they are objectifying women as sex objects, exuding a toxic Witcher masculinity, let alone being sexually perverse misogynists, etc. The thought control is engineered to get males to censor their own thoughts via the emotively charged state of being made to feel guilty about being male, etc, which in turn censors their dreams.

Perhaps science fiction is becoming science fact!? So, if you have a very real Necronomicon, which has been banned by the cults of the deified Animus, it would list what has been entirely cut out of the symbolic equation, a Faustian sorcerer would fathom…

“Horrid, old and dumb,” many a protesting Mummy Porn Maenad to have screamed at me, likening an Avadhuta Faustian rebel to Danny DeVito, while I flew over their tangled Medusa hair Nets, to Heyoka howl… “Animus!”

Wherefore I decided to create a Necronomicon based upon the Goetia, which illustrates the female archetypes of the Fallen Anima, you could term as being a Fifty Shades Of Grey Playboy grimoire, whose tome explores the rebellious lucid dream conjurations of Owl eyed Athena (Succubi) Succubae, betwixt the High Priestess pylons, black and white.

Those who term my Artwork as being occult porn, merely reveal where they are coming from, who reside within a closeted Plato’s cave of a neuro-marketing Animus fixation

It is the symbolic Matrix where the feminist likes of Oprah Winfrey read Fifty Shades Of Grey Mummy Porn, which objectifies the male in their Playgirl grimoires! Savvy!

I have had an idea of creating an EC comic for some time, which has only become a reality when I discovered Createspace and Patreon. The comic will be of similarity to the adult science fiction fantasy comic magazine Metal Hurlant/Heavy Metal. I will be putting the Comic Strip Artwork on my PATREON Page.

The problem with Patreon, is that it does not list Adult orientated material, so, it has to be promoted elsewhere. I also had to change the title of my Patreon page in order for it to be found. As for the comic, it will involve my alter-ego, Faustus Crow, who will be the principle character. Crow does not see a division between the practice of Art and Sorcery, which leads him into the inner space realms of the lucid dream.

The main underground comic will be an anthology of stories, which are based in varying dream worlds.

Though separate, the stories are inter-related by Crow journeying between them who is sometimes featured directly or indirectly, which will be made up of one pagers, as well as short stories, numbering two or four, to eight pages each.

The artwork will be drawn in black and white using traditional media as depicted by the concept sketches, comic pages and finished artwork on this page.

Some of the stories will be about the Goetia Girls, as depicted in my Art book grimoires as well as being introduced by the (Succubae) Succubi, Crow has conjured into his lucid dreams, as his salacious Art Muses.

Some of the Succubi are knitted-together Frankenhooker Tulpa mind-dolls who have been animated into their spectral life by Crow’s sorcery Art.

The principle Succubus Art Muse is Mephistophina who is Crow’s illustrated girl, whose knitted-together Frankenhooker canvas skin tells of many a tattooed story world, and each dream world is governed over by her (Succubi) Succubae sisters.

goetia_girls_liliths_harem_mephistophina_succubus_of_faustus_crow

Crow’s Faustian character is a fusion between differing influences such as Hermann Hesse’s Steppenwolf character, Harry Haller, Austin Osman Spare and Salvador Dali fused with Doctor Who.

His story is somewhat like an adult version of Little Nemo In Slumberland, whose dream interactions with his Night-Mare Muses, leads him into other alternate worlds. The comic strip is tied in with my book, Lilith’s Harem.

The other Steppenwolf dream worlds Crow journeys into will investigate varying Magic Theatre themes, covering Occult, Horror, Science Fiction and Fantasy as well as other associated genres.

The style of the Artwork will be of a Surrealist nature, which may not always use text, to otherwise be more visual of narrative. Most if not all of the stories will be erotic of Tantric orientation.

Some of the comic strips will also be experimental of style. Other comic book ideas such as Munster X Files Marilyn, etc, will involve alternative and mixed media such as photo-montage and CGI, etc.

ART IS MAGIC, MAGIC IS ART

Posted in Art, Chaos Magic, Comics, Occultism, Shamanism, Sorcery, Witchcraft with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 1, 2017 by FAUSTUS CROW

There is some confusion as to what Magic actually is. I think this can be cleared up if you just look at the very earliest descriptions of Magic. Magic in its earliest form is often referred to as “The Art”.

Because I am a bearded Wizard of the Comici Arcanum Guild, knowing Wizard stuff, I know this is completely literal. I know that Magic is Art, and that Art, whether it be Painting, Writing, Music, Sculpture, or any other form of Art is literally Magic.

Art is, like Magic, the science of manipulating symbols, words, or images, to achieve changes in consciousness. The very language about Magic seems to be talking as much about Writing or Art as it is about supernatural events.

For example, an illustrated proto-comic book of spells, called a Grimoire , is simply a fancy way of saying grammar. Indeed, to cast a spell, is simply to spell, to manipulate words, to change people’s consciousness.

And I believe that this is why an Artist and a Writer of a comic book Grimoire is the closest thing in the contemporary world that you are likely to see to a Wizard.

I believe that all culture must have arisen from cult. Originally, all of the faucets of our culture, whether they be in the Arts or Sciences were the province of the Wizard.

The fact that in present times, this Magical power has degenerated to the level of cheap entertainment and manipulation, is, I think a tragedy.

At the moment the people who are using Shamanism and Magic to shape our culture are neuro-advertisers. Rather than try to wake people up, their Shamanism is used as an opiate to tranquilize people, to make people’s reptilian-brain-stems more manipulable.

Their Magic box of television, and by their Magic words, their jingles can cause everyone in the country to be thinking the same words and have the same banal thoughts all at exactly the same moment.

In all of Magic there is an incredibly large linguistic component. The Bardic tradition of Magic would place a Bard as being much higher and more fearsome than a Magician.

A Magician might curse you. That might make your hands lay funny or you might have a child born with a club foot.

If a Bard were to place not a curse upon you, but a satire, then that could destroy you. If it was a clever satire, it might not just destroy you in the eyes of your associates; it would destroy you in the eyes of your family.

It would destroy you in your own eyes. And if it was a finely worded and clever satire that might survive and be remembered for decades, even centuries.

Then years after you were dead people still might be reading it and laughing at you and your wretchedness and your absurdity. Writers and people who had command of words were respected and feared as people who manipulated Magic.

In latter times I think that Artists and Writers have allowed themselves to be sold down the river. They have accepted the prevailing belief that Art and Writing are merely forms of entertainment.

They’re not seen as transformative forces that can change a human being; that can change a society.

They are seen as simple entertainment; things with which we can fill 20 minutes, half an hour, while we’re waiting to die. It’s not the Wizard job of the Artist to give the audience what the audience wants.

If the audience knew what they needed, then they wouldn’t be the audience. They would be the Artists. It is the Wizard job of Artists to give the audience what they need.
