The first full-color proof is in! 72DEMONS was featured in the Miller gallery in Pittsburgh along with other works by Carnegie Mellon's graduating class of 2012. Check out our flickr page for photos of the show last month -- plus previews of the 72DEMONS book. (A warning for those at work: some images contain cartoon nudity)
Inspired by the Lesser Key of Solomon, comics, and 17th century grimoire, the 72DEMONS project is a venue for new and budding visual artists. Our goal is to publish an illustrated book depicting the seventy-two demons archived in the Ars Goetia, believed to be a guide written by King Solomon for summoning both helpful and malevolent spirits. Thousands of years later these entities persist, although they have changed their names and faces!
Since summer of 2011, 72DEMONS has expanded into a diverse collective of illustrators, painters, graphic designers, writers and video artists - making for one hefty book! Like what you see? What you are viewing now are only a few pieces from the first full-color proof.
