Illustration: Pillars Periodical Journal

Preview of the Illustrated Card to go with Pillars Periodical Journal, Issue 1, Vol. 1

Card contains:

Hand-inked Lucifer Seal with characters and evocational formula from the Grimorium Verum and personal Teufelskunst seal. The surrounding illustrations are semi-automatic, born from chaotic lines drawn randomly on paper until figures took shape. I was aiming for a sketchy and relaxed style, something which does not want to be admired but communicates essence and inspiration to fellow practitioners on the Path, passing on overall positive energies. I still traced and erased much in the search for fitting figurative elements and I did not use any references except for a pair of crossed human femur bones.

This is a preview. The entire illustration will come as a card to go with the first issue of Pillars Periodical Journal.

Here is another snippet from the card as well as an obscured preview of the Heqet-Hekate illustration going inside:

Images are done as Xonia Abyssos

A short introduction to Teufelskunst, which currently takes up all my time and focus. I also keep working on my photography but more about that later…

Wiebke Rost is an illustrator, craftswoman and photographer, sometimes working under the pseudonym Xonia Abyssos. Wiebke originally studied medicine but she also freelanced for two German music zines. Through the work at the magazines she came in touch with Swedish cult band Dissection. Her photos of Dissection and other photography can be seen at her photo site. Wiebke also did a row of esoteric book illustrations. From the contact with the esoteric art scene, her studies of the occult, a deep contempt for anything ‘normal’ and a passionate interest in herbology sprang Teufelskunst, an art project in the widest sense, as it encompasses not only art but also a philosophy and way of living. Teufelskunst offers art, ritual supplies including incense and candles, talismans, fetishes as well as seeds and info for the weird practitioners of the sorcerous arte, who do grow their own herbs and study their lore.

Main inspirations: dreams, friends, nature, the news, other artists and mostoften simple random things
