“At The Still Hour Of Midnight The Graves Shall Open And A Vast Multitude Shall Rise”, 12"x16", gouache & watercolor on paper. This piece is sold but you can still visit the original at Nucleus Portland until June 22nd!

Wondering about these weird long titles on my pieces? Well, they’re all modified excerpts from a spooky book called “The Prophecies of the Brahan Seer” (published in 1899) which I pulled randomly off a shelf in the occult section of a used book store in Vancouver a couple weeks ago; the Brahan Seer was allegedly the invention of the author as no other record of him exists, but lines from the book are so metal I couldn’t resist using them as inspiration for the titles of a body of work about mystical animal revenge 🌸
