The above Artwork is an ‘enlarged’ partial part of a rough A4 Pencil sketch, the entirety of the Artwork can be found on my Patreon page.

The Artwork investigates the theme of the Fourth Anima archetype of a Succubus whom is named Samigina in the Goetia. Samigina is said to first appear as a hypnagogic vision of a small Horse, Donkey or Ass before assuming human form amidst the Triangle Of Art imagination.

Although the motif of a small Horse, Donkey or Ass does appear to refer to an Artists Easel on which many a manifest painting is inspired by an Artists model of a Holy Whore Courtesan.

Courtesans had served as Models and Muses for Artists as early as the Renaissance, and long before. The general populace of the time usually saw the Artists studio to be a most ‘Sinful’ place, they considered to be none too different to a ‘Sinners’ bordello, and in some cases the Artists personal Harem, frequented by infernal Bat winged Whores of the night.

For example in Titian’s painting, the languorous Venus of Urbino, the Goddess of love, is in fact Angela del Moro, one of the highest-paid courtesans in 14th century Venice.

As for the word Easel, it is borrowed from Dutch Ezel (“Donkey: Easel”). Also Middle Dutch Esel (“Donkey”), as well as Proto-West Germanic Asil.

One also has the Latin Asellus (“young Ass or small Donkey”), which is diminutive of Asinus (“Ass, Donkey”). The Night-Mare word is ultimately derived from an unknown source in Asia Minor.

Essentially, the ‘Crucifying’ stand upon which a painting is placed is being likened to a Donkey carrying a burden. One also has the Artists term, Art Horse.

Hence Samigina’s grimoire seal, which can be seen in the sketches is reminiscent of an Artists Easel set upon a half globe of the Earth.

The globe is divided into eight compass directions, having a circle below it, representing the Magic circle, encircling the Artists Art studio.

NOTE: There are two A4 sketches. The first of which depicting Wednesday Addams includes a portrait of Gertrude (Gerti) Schiele, the sister of Egon Schiele whose self-portrait is also depicted, along with his erotic studies of his sister Gerti. 

One also has a portrait of Charles Addams and his sister and brother creation of Wednesday and Pugsley. Basically I was looking into fusing the Art styles of Egon Schiele and Charles Addams. 

The other sketch is a sketched comic page, which depicts Salvador Dali’s painting, The Great Masturbator and Maurizio Cattelan’s $120K Banana duct-taped to a wall, entitled:‘Comedian.’ It is somewhat apt of a viral-meme brand since the Polynesian ‘trickster’ God called Maui is associated with the Banana, which represents the masculine (Mars) principle, just as the politicised Unicorn does. 

The sketched comic might be transferred onto Bristol board to be inked in, and perhaps water-coloured? whereupon I did not shade the sketch, leaving it open line. The sketches can be found Here! 

The animations are derived from the Art videos created by the Mephistophina surrealist Artist/Model/Art Muse, Joan Pope.
