Since I don’t have a section related to my personal Art (drawings, photography and graphic design) included in this blog, I dedicated a fraction of my free time to assemble together and article very much intended to put all of my work into once place. Yes, everything that I post on my DeviantArt page can be viewed there, and there are even categories with cool icons and it looks quite neat and all of that, but a section in what I see as my most important place at the moment, where I express myself both by writing and by making art, is by all means quite a necessary feature to have in my honest and modest opinion.  So without further ado, let’s get into my personal world of unpredictable possibilities! ..and Magick! I’ll be constantly updating this article, because obviously I’ll be adding my new drawings, photography and graphic design and the rest of my art.

Skuggsja – A Piece for Mind and Mirror 

skuggsja___a_piece_for_mind_and_mirror__updated__by_thenewoath-daafzbg

I love this project and everything about it. It was directly inspired by the original front cover of the album, along with some motives and details from the booklet. The Runes were completely spontaneous and my own personal idea.

Pencils on A4 printing paper + Photoshop tweaks here and there.

From their website:

Skuggsjá is a musical piece written by Ivar Bjørnson and Einar Selvik. Arranged to be performed by Enslaved and Wardruna and was originally initiated as a commissioned concert piece for the 200th anniversary of the Norwegian Constitution and premiered in September 2014 at the Eidsivablot festival, Eidsvoll where the constitution was written. Shortly after its debut Skuggsjá was announced as one of the headliner acts of the 20th edition of Roadburn Festival 2015.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

the_elder_scrolls_v__skyrim__updated__by_thenewoath-dcfde4m

I did this one in 2017

It took me a while to finish this one, and I still think it is not quite done, but it was supposed to be a sort of quick drawing or a sketch, and it turned out to be something else in the end, but it looks quite well. I am very, very pleased with the final result. The dragon runes on the bottom are actually saying “SKYRIM”. The dragon logo of The Elder Scrolls series has a very special place for me. Both as a gamer and as an artist. It goes without saying, but The Elder Scrolls franchise, and especially Skyrim are probably the greatest form of art in video games of all times. Including the masterpiece soundtrack by mister Jeremy Soule, I think it is quite hard really to find weak spots there. Now, off to new adventures! …but without taking arrows in my knees. 

Fus-Ro-Dah!


Gaming and Art

I’ve been a gamer pretty much through my entire conscious existence on this planet, and I have the fuzzy feeling that I’ll remain a gamer for the rest of my days (in one way or another). I remember that I always had a strong passion for few things in life. First and foremost, it was music (all aspects of it, as well as the creative process), than fantasy literature and cinema (Tolkien’s books primarily and of course Peter Jackson’s adaptation of TLOTR), and after that, like everyone else interested in books, writing and languages, my curiosity for History was quite crucial and it came quite naturally. Books in general are the “stuff” of life for me, and drawing stuff is the one of the most important aspects of life itself, and oh yes, yes, drawing is… its food for the soul!  …and we all know how a soulless person can be. Then last but not least, video games. I’m not a gamer anymore and I stopped playing video games a few years ago (I had my reasons), but I always felt and I continue to feel attached to the idea and the feeling what a virtual environment can evoke in you. RPGs are absolutely excellent to dive into and admire the beautiful design, the gameplay and the levels and gain experience, level up and all that, but the most excellent RPG is to explore the natural world outside and role-play your own way while living. I think there is no better RPG than life itself! Explore life and level up! Thank you for spending time to read this.

Wardruna – Runaljod – Ragnarok

wardruna___runaljod___ragnarok_by_thenewoath-dbaa55f

My homage to Wardruna and their third installment in the Runaljod saga-trilogy. Don’t need to say or describe anything about the music or the album. Each song speaks of itself and it is quite hard to describe perfection in simple words anyway! I did this drawing in a manner of a few days and I also came up with the idea of the 24 Rune-Elder Futhark encircling the actual logo. This drawing is inspired by the official artwork of the album 
www.rarelyunable.com/wp-conten…
and very much of the music as well and the concept ot Wardruna. Full circle means new opportunities. There is no end to the cycle, only never-ending death-rebirth scenario until infinity! 

Rúnar munt þú finna
ok ráðna stafi,

Ouroboros

Very much inspired by John Howe’s sketch:

The Ouroboros

My latest endeavour into the world of the occult. I did this one as a sort of a tribute to Carl Jung and the illustrator John Howe. It is very much inspired by all sorts of natural as well as supernatural things of life and philosophies, but the major and central theme is ART and SCIENCE. For both Art and Science create what we term, MAGIC. In reality what MAGIC actually is and represents is the SCIENCE and ART of causing CHANGE to occur in conformity with WILL. The meaning of the Ouroboros is always open for interpretations though. As Carl Jung wrote:

“The alchemists, who in their own way knew more about the nature of the individuation process than we moderns do, expressed this paradox through the symbol of the Ouroboros, the snake that eats its own tail. The Ouroboros has been said to have a meaning of infinity or wholeness. In the age-old image of the Ouroboros lies the thought of devouring oneself and turning oneself into a circulatory process, for it was clear to the more astute alchemists that the prima materia of the art was man himself. The Ouroboros is a dramatic symbol for the integration and assimilation of the opposite, i.e. of the shadow. This ‘feed-back’ process is at the same time a symbol of immortality, since it is said of the Ouroboros that he slays himself and brings himself to life, fertilizes himself and gives birth to himself. He symbolizes the One, who proceeds from the clash of opposites, and he therefore constitutes the secret of the prima materia which […] unquestionably stems from man’s unconscious.”


White Tree of Gondor 

white_tree_of_gondor_by_thenewoath-dbs20ha

Skeched with a pencil and then covered with a black drawing pen on white A4 printing paper.

White Tree of Gondor

The White Tree of Gondor stood as a symbol of Gondor in the Court of the Fountain in Minas Tirith. Its predecessor was a seedling of Nimloth planted in Minas Ithil, that was destroyed before the end of the Second Age.

The White Tree also appears in the Livery of Elendil, as a motif upon Gondor’s flag.

History

First White Tree

The first White Tree of Gondor came from a fruit that Isildur, at great personal risk, managed to steal from Nimloth the Fair, the White Tree of Númenor, before that one was destroyed at Sauron‘s insistence. He suffered many wounds at this mission, and he came near death, but when the first leaf opened in the spring, Isildur was healed of his wounds.

This sapling was brought to Middle-earth on Isildur’s ship, and it was eventually planted in Minas Ithil before his house. But when Sauron returned to Middle-earth, he launched a sudden attack in S.A. 3429 that captured Minas Ithil, and he burned the White Tree. Isildur escaped taking with him again a sapling.

Second White Tree

In the T.A. 2, Isildur planted the seedling of the White Tree in Minas Anor in memory of his brother, Anárion.

This White Tree lasted until T.A. 1636, when the Great Plague hit Gondor, killing among many others King Telemnar and his children.

Third White Tree

See also: Dead Tree

A third sapling was planted in T.A. 1640 by King Tarondor and died in T.A. 2872 with the death of the Ruling Steward Belecthor II.[2]

Since no seedling was found, it was left standing after its death.[2] When eventually replaced in T.A. 3019, it was placed in the Tombs of the Kings with royal honors.

Fourth White Tree

When Aragorn became king he discovered (with Gandalf‘s help) a sapling of the White Tree on the high hallow upon the slopes of Mindolluin, high above the city, which he reverently planted in its place. In June of T.A. 3019 the sapling bloomed.


Flammarion Engraving Detail

flammarion_engraving_detail_by_thenewoath-dc0dmcr

I really like medieval woodcuts and engravings. I’ve also been quite interested in Occult topics sinse my early teens, and Alchemy has always been a very curious subject to me. From Galileo to John Dee and Aleister Crowley. Everything related to the “unseen” and the Super-Natural is welcome in my radar. 

Alchemists and sages, wizards through the ages and supreme mages!

Latest drawing! …or simply call it a sketch. (Sketches are good, but I like finished drawings more) A detail from the Flammarion engraving

I’ve been working on this drawing, in and out, in a span of a few weeks. Kept adding more and more and in the end, there was no more space left. As you can see, the paper is divided in two, because I started on A4 format printing paper and later noticed that I might need more space to complete the Runestone. This is reconstruction and detail of an actual, existing RUNESTONE, found somewhere in Sweden.

OuroBoris Book Reviews

(Secondary Channel Logo)

ouroboris_book_reviews_by_thenewoath-dc29gqn

An alternative version of a logo that I drew for my  secondary YouTube channel, which deals only with books reviews. It’s a game of words. My first name is Borislav, but people call me Boris. So Ouroboros becomes OuroBoris. I have a modest, but proper small book library. A lot to review. So many books I wanted to review along the years, and now I may the chance to do it. If time allows and if fate dictates.

Celtic Knot Letter Motive (Cruachan inspired)

celtic_knot_letter___cruachan_by_thenewoath-dcg8p7b

Pencil on a sticky note. I  am not kidding!! 🙂 I wanted to make a  bookmark inspired by the logo of the Irish lads from Cruachan and I just had one of them sticky notes flying around. Here’s what came out of it. I quite like it. I use it for my books. It’s quite handy too. 

Band

Cruachan is a folk metal band from DublinIreland that has been active since the 1990s. They have been acclaimed as having “gone the greatest lengths of anyone in their attempts to expand” the genre of folk metal.[1] They are recognised as one of the founders of the genre of folk metal. With a specific focus on Celtic music and the use of Celtic mythology in their lyrics, Cruachan’s style of folk metal is known as Celtic metal.[2] The band named themselves after the archaeological site of Rathcroghan in Ireland also known as Cruachan.

Rathcroghan

Rathcroghan (IrishRáth Cruachan, meaning “fort of Cruachan”) is a complex of archaeological sites near Tulsk in County Roscommon, Ireland. It is identified as the site of Cruachan, the traditional capital of the Connachta, a term used to describe the prehistoric and early historic rulers of the western territory. The Rathcroghan Complex (Crúachan Aí) is a unique archaeological landscape with many references found in early Irish medieval manuscripts.

Located on the plains of Connacht (Mag nAí/Machaire Connacht), Rathcroghan is one of the six Royal Sites of Ireland. This landscape which extends over six square kilometres, consists of 240 plus archaeological sites, sixty of which are protected national monuments.

These monuments range from the Neolithic (4000 – 2500 BC), through the Bronze (2500 – 500 BC) and Iron Age (500 BC – 400 AD), to the early medieval period and beyond. These monuments include burial mounds, ringforts and medieval field boundaries amongst others. The most fascinating of these are the multi period Rathcroghan Mound, the mysterious cave of Oweynagat, the Mucklaghs – a spectacular set of linear earthworks, as well as the Carns medieval complex.

There are many interesting historic references to Rathcroghan (Ráth Crúachan) recorded in early medieval manuscripts, including the 12th century Lebor na hUidre. Rathcroghan is recorded as the location of one of the great fairs of Ireland, as well as being one of the island’s three great heathen cemeteries. It is also the location for the beginning and end of a national epic tale – an Táin Bó Cuailnge, and the royal seat of Medb (Maeve), Connacht’s Warrior Queen.

Uniquely, Rathcroghan possesses an entrance to the Otherworld, described in the medieval period as “Ireland’s Gate to Hell”, located at Oweynagat (the Cave of the Cats). The cave has associations with the pagan festival of SamhainHalloween, as well as being described as the “fit abode” of Morrigan, a Celtic Goddess of pre-Christian Ireland.

Pine Tree Sketch

pine_tree_sketch_by_thenewoath-dcepwrv

Pretty recent sketch that I did (early summer, 2018) , while roaming around the local woods and exploring the unexplored.  Black pen on white notebook paper.

Sacred Trees of the Celts and Druids

The Pine tree is an evergreen, its old title was “the sweetest of woods.” It was known to the Druids as one of the seven chieftain trees of the Irish. Mix the dried needles with equal parts of juniper and cedar and burn to purify the home and ritual area. The cones and nuts can be carried as a fertility charm. A good magickal cleansing and stimulating bath is made by placing pine needles in a loose-woven bag and running bath water over it. To purify and sanctify an outdoor ritual area, brush the ground with a pine branch.

The Spiral

The oldest symbol known to be used in spiritual practices. It reflects the universal pattern of growth and evolution and  represents the goddess, the womb, fertility and life force energy. Reflected in the natural world, the Spiral is found in human physiology, plants, minerals, animals, energy patterns, weather, growth and death. It is a sacred symbol that reminds us of our evolving journey in life. When used as a personal talisman, the Spiral helps consciousness to accept the turnings and changes of life as it evolves.

The Masks of God

the_masks_of_god_by_thenewoath-dchdm3u

Pencil on a sticky note!
A study of the human face and its features. I did those four back in 2016. They can be wonderful bookmarks. (if they behave themselves) 

“The child’s world is alert and alive, governed by rules of response and command, not by physical laws: a portentous continuum of consciousness, endowed with purpose and intent, either resistant or responsive to the child itself. 

This infantile notion of a world governed by moral rather than physical laws, kept under control by a superordinated parental personality instead of impersonal physical forces, and oriented to the weal and woe of man, is an illusion that dominates men’s thoughts all over the world.

The sense then, of this world as an undifferentiated continuum of simultaneously subjective and objective experience (Participation), which is all alive (Animism), and which was created by a superior being (Artificialism), may be said to constitute the frame of reference of all childhood experience no matter where in the world. 

No small wonder then, that the above Three Principles are precisely those most represented in the mythologies and religious systems of the whole world.”

The Portal To The Otherworld

Otherworld

The concept of an otherworld in historical Indo-European religion is reconstructed in comparative mythology. Its name is a calque of orbis alius (Latin for “other Earth/world”), a term used by Lucan in his description of the Celtic Otherworld.

Comparable religiousmythological or metaphysical concepts, such as a realm of supernatural beings and a realm of the dead, are found in cultures throughout the world.[1] Spirits are thought to travel between worlds, or layers of existence in such traditions, usually along an axis such as a giant tree, a tent pole, a river, a rope or mountains

Celtic Otherworld

In Celtic mythology, the Otherworld is the realm of the deities and possibly also of the dead.

In Gaelic and Brittonic mythology it is usually described as a supernatural realm of everlasting youth, beauty, health, abundance and joy.[1] The Otherworld is usually elusive, but various mythical heroes visit it either through chance or after being invited by one of its residents. They often reach it by entering ancient burial mounds or caves, or by going under water or across the western sea.[1] Sometimes, the Otherworld is said to exist alongside our own and intrudes into this one; signaled by phenomena such as magic mist, sudden changes in the weather, or the appearance of divine beings or unusual animals.[2]An otherworldly woman may invite the hero into the Otherworld by offering an apple or a silver apple branch, or a ball of thread to follow as it unwinds.[2][3]

The Otherworld is usually called Annwn in Welsh mythology and Avalon in Arthurian legend. In Irish mythology it has several names, including Tír na nÓgMag Mell and Emain Ablach. In Irish myth there is also Tech Duinn, where the souls of the dead gather.

Old Man Willow

old_man_willow_by_thenewoath-dahmd38

Taken in 2016

Old Man Willow was a willow in the Old Forest standing near Withywindle.

History

He might have been an Ent who had become tree-like, or possibly a Huorn, as the Old Forest was originally part of the same primordial forest as Fangorn.

The Great Willow was evil-hearted and from it much of the Forest’s hatred of walking things came.[1] Despite his power, Tom Bombadil, who called him Old grey Willow-man, had power over him, and checked the evil as much as he could, or was willing.

On 26 September T.A. 3018[2] Old Man Willow cast a spell on the hobbits (FrodoSam, Merry and Pippin), causing them to feel sleepy. Merry and Pippin leaned against the trunk and fell asleep, while Frodo sat on a root to dangle his feet in the water, before also falling asleep. The tree trapped Merry and Pippin in cracks in the trunk, and tipped Frodo into the stream.

Sam managed to fight off the spell and rescued Frodo from the stream. Together they attempted to save Merry and Pippin by lighting a fire at the tree’s base, but this only served to infuriate Old Man Willow, who threatened to kill the trapped hobbits. They were saved by the timely arrival of Tom Bombadil who knew “the tune for him”.[1]

In the poem The Adventures of Tom Bombadil, Old Man Willow sings Tom Bombadil to sleep and traps him in a crack. He then speaks to Tom, chastising him for spying on him and tickling him with his feather. Tom orders Old Man Willow to release him, which he does immediately


As Above So Below. As Within So Without

as_above_so_below__as_within_so_without_by_thenewoath-dahmcx1

“The mystery of the universe and the wonder of the temple of the world are what speak to us through all myths and rites – as well as the great effort of man to bring his individual life into concord with the whole. And the imagery by which this mystery, wonder, and effort have been rendered in the recorded traditions of mankind is so marvelously constant – in spite of all the varieties of local life and culture – that we well may wonder whether it may not simply be coeval with the human mind”.

Baba Marta

baba_marta_by_thenewoath-d9y6zq2

The Martenitsa is one of the oldest and most interesting symbols. For its meaning and origin there are different views. Some researchers seek connection with the time when Tsar Kaloyan lived, others returned further back in the past – in the era of Asparuh. There are those who try to impose their belief that the oldest martenitsa is from the land of Iran. Overall, however, all these statements are based mostly on personal desires and are not supported by solid arguments. I think the truth is quite different and it may surprise many of my countrymen.

Old are the woods
And the buds that do break
From the coarse brier’s boughs,
When the fierce winds wake.

Old are our ways
As the streams that still rise,
Where the snow now sleeps cold
In the deep azure skies.

So, who are we now,
A horde of their ghosts?
Or oaks that were acorns,
From the trees of their hopes?

Sing of such a history,
Of come and of gone.
If their means they were wise,
In ourselves they live on.

So, who are we now,
A horde of their ghosts?
Or oaks that were acorns,
From the trees of their hopes?

That’s the front door iron hinge of the house in my village. Quite rusty and corroded, but it has seen better days. The shot is from a recent trip that I made with my folks and it took us a day of hard work (mostly picking apples and pears), climbing on roofs and trees, fixing things and wandering around. Good old memories emerged from the hidden repositories of my subconscious and it’s been a magical experience for sure! 

“Man as we realize if we reflect for a moment, never perceives anything fully or comprehends anything completely. He can see, hear, touch, and taste; but how far he sees, how well he hears, what his touch tells him, and what he tastes depend upon the number and quality of his senses. These limit his perception of the world around him. By using scientific instruments he can partly compensate for the deficiencies of his senses. For example, he can extend the range of his vision by binoculars or of his hearing by electrical amplification. But the most elaborate apparatus cannot do more than bring distant or small objects within range of his eyes, or make faint sounds more audible. No matter what instruments he uses, at some point he reaches the edge of certainty beyond which conscious knowledge cannot pass.”

Telperion: I

History and Etymology

Telperion was the elder of the Two Trees, and bloomed during the first part of the Valian day, followed by Laurelin. It endured throughout the Years of the Trees, but came to an end in the dreadful Darkening of Valinor.

However one of Telperion’s flowers survived the Darkening, and was set aloft by the Valar; this was the light of the Moon, carried by Tilion the Maia

Telperion
 comes from telepi “silver”. The exact etymology of the ending -rion is not entirely clear, but it can mean something like “great wreathed one” (Cf. ríarielle).

The Quenya form was actually Tyelperion but Quenya adopted telpë from Telerin

Here’s my humble persona, looking rather thoughful. Quite a recent photo. So recent that it was taken on a trip in the old parts of my hometown yesterday (02.08.18). The old part is basically where Kings and Queens resided in castles, chambers and cathedrals in medieval times. The city of Kings was called. We still have some hillforts and watchtowers left, but most of it was obliterated when we were under a siege by the Ottomans. So much is actually a reconstruction. These orcs ruined everything! It was a bloody good trip though.
