EVNAR -E.V.N.A.R



EVNAR is a black/death band arising from Tarragona, formed by the brothers JM and Roman and Robert Kovačič. Their music is strongly inspired by the glorious 90’s sound of SACRAMENTUM , DAWN, LORD BELIAL, UNANIMATED…
I’m a long time friend of Roman and he wanted me to illustrate the cover artwork for their debut album. I sent him some rough sketches,  in the vein of those I made for ABORIORTH some years ago which were a bit abstract and got rejected.
They wanted something more based in the classic concept of the grim reaper, more primitive somehow.
So I  did a whole new sketch, with the Reaper sitting on his throne, waiting for the doomed to to take unholy communion with him.
Here’s the result:

Every Virgin Needs A Rape
I think  this fits perfectly their music, that you can check out here:

E.V.N.AR. is coming out on CD (jewel case and die-hard) and vynil next Month , with an A3 sized poster featuring my artwork  included in the first 50 LP copies. Don’t miss it!

Obscured Forces Incarnated



I’m working with a lot of greek bands lately, and that’s simply awesome. As a worshipper of hellenic legends like early ROTTING CHRIST, VARATHRON, ZEMIAL as well as contemporary masters like EMBRACE OF THORNS, BURIAL HORDES and RAVENCULT, I’m proud of beign able to illustrate awesome releases from Greece (some still to be revealed).
I was contacted by N.E.C.R.O. some weeks ago, he wanted me to render the cover artwork for ENSHADOWED/DISOLVO ANIMUS split EP,  my schedule was (and still is) extremely tight, but after hearing the samples he sent me an idea popped in my mind quickly.
No skulls, no demons, no blasphemy and no gore this time, but a cosmic vision of universal wisdom is what I thought of. So I took a sheet  of black  cardboard, a Posca white marker and did this quick sketch:

Both bands liked it, so I copied it to a 50x50cm white canvas (instead of working white over black I decided the opposite for the sake of details)
And this was the result:

FUCK THE TRENDS!!!



As most people who have any sense at all I HATE hipsters. Those fucktards are one of the most irritating specimens in the degradating human race. I  come across plenty of them when I get to my daily job’s office and I wish i could beat the shit out of them, but you know, I prefer not to be fined or spend the week in jail :).
BOKLUK also hate them, and they knew I would  have a lot of fun with this commission:

Hipster Crusher!

Not a hard worked poster but an effective one.
PS: Neither me not the band have nothing against BÖLZER (rather the opposite), but those  smart enough will get the point :)

Blackphemy Zine – Blood Upon the Altar



About a month ago I got a call from Mr. Blackphemy, the mastermind behind Fornikator Productions, he wanted an illustration for “a secret release” to be done by me. No details were given about that, only that it must be the most blasphemous scene I could imagine in my mind with the title “Sangre sobre el altar” (Blood upon the altar, an obvious reference to the Ross Bay  cult).
With this brief definition I came out to the idea of a priest offering a mutilated  cherub to the Goat, having an erection while performing the abominable ritual .
This fitted perfectly and the day after delivering the finished job I was told about what  the commission was all about and that Blackphemy zine was being printed!

Ululate – Back to Cannibal World



Chinese black metal band ULULATE has evolved its style into a killer old school death metal, and  have signed to Xtreem Music for their new record “Back to Cannibal World”.
Dave Rotten got in touch with me a couple of months ago asking me for the artwork. The concept was clear: “chinese vampires and chinese hell”.
When I was young I was a lot into eastern horror movies like “Mr. Vampire”, “A chinese ghost story”,”The boxer’s omen”,”Robovampire” featured gruesome  chinese monsters, zombies, vampires and  incredibly grim scenes. I always liked the character of the Jiang shi, a  reanimated corpse  whose “evil half ” has not leave this world along its “good half”. Jiang shi behaves like a vampiric zombie, and can be controlled by nigromancy.
So the front cover shows a bunch of jiang shi rising from the tomb, and also some flying heads  and evil spirits.
The backcover shows the gates of the underworld  opening, with a jiang shi welcoming some mythical creatures from chinese hell, like the guardians Ox-head and Horse-face.
I tried to use a wash ink technique similar to  Shui-mo  (ancient chinese brush ink paintings) as well as my usual lineart.
