We are on the side of man, of life and of the individual. Therefore we are against religion, morality and government. Therefore our name is Lucifer.
We are on the side of freedom, of love, of joy and laughter and divine drunkenness. Therefore our name is Babalon.
Sometimes we move openly, sometimes in silence and in secret. Night and day are one to us, calm and storm, seasons and the cycles of man, all these things are one, for we are at the roots. Supplicant we stand before the Powers of Life and Death, and are heard of these powers and avail.
Our way is the secret way, the unknown direction. Ours is the way of the serpent in the underbrush, our knowledge is in the eyes of goats and of women.
“According to the universal laws, the magician will form his own point of view about the universe which henceforth will be his true religion.”
— Franz Bardon, “Initiation into Hermetics”

Tarot Deck Border by Terra Bosart 2014
The thing with tagging my pictures with the relevant words to symbols in the piece is that, on occasion, the words misdirect the fans and viewers into a direction I did not intend. Reblogging through social networks creates a game of “telephone”, where the original context is lost in translation. Such is the nature of the magic of language.
The other day, on three separate occasions, my work on the skateboard decks has led to the assumption or suggestion that I am or should be creating a Tarot deck. This assumption has been met with a high degree of anticipation and glee, which has been quite lovely to hear.
For the record, I certainly intend to make a Tarot deck. Though, I admit, the idea of 78 different art pieces is a bit daunting. It’s difficult to find the time for such an endeavor, while working full time to take care of the basic needs, but I feel it shall eventually happen. I certainly look forward to it.
I did begin work on a border though, as well as a few of the major Arcana. Here we go!

So, I’m moving, again. The second time in a three month period. Hopefully this one will stick.
The negative side effect from preparing to move on top of a full time work shift in a job environment that is continuously shifting the deck chairs, is that I have no creative energy left at the end of the day to draw.
This is intolerable.
I recognize how much colder and withdrawn as a personality I am tending to become. I am seeing bad habits form, as my work life and home life have no balance to them.
Even my computer is acting funky,
Point is. I’d rather be drawing. Sorry I have nothing to show you right now. I really wish I did.
Soon, I am hoping, I will find the time to replenish my reserves and draw like there’s no tomorrow.

A friend of mine is raising funds for a coworker who has come down with cancer, through a live stream video game marathon. Come watch. I was considered for the poster development.
Here’s what I have so far. Though I know not the exact date as of yet, I thought to promote it regardless, and update as the event comes closer.
I’m totally updating this as we get closer to the launch date, but DeAxiom plays each week. Tune in for further details. :)
This friday through sunday: May 2nd until May 4th. Be there!
