Different flavor of update this week. Here’s some art from Luis Guragña for STRANGEWAYS book 3, THE LAND WILL KNOW. Still pushing for this to be completed this year for a release early next year.

Unsurprisingly, the two represent polar opposites of magick as much as they did with their work in comics; Moore favoring the esoteric and […]
Art by Peter Smith, with design by John Balance Happy Halloween. We’re going to try a new thing here, where I post stuff on my actual weblog and use Tumblr in a different way.
