The Crystal Sigil book

The Crystal Sigil book  (by Charles Glaubitz)

Been working on some pieces for a show in Upper playground Mexico, a bunch of drawings of a story that is titled "The crystal sigil"...about 100 sumi ink drawings on watercolor paper. It tells the story of the introduction of a new character to the myth of "The Eternals" and the 1st battle between the starseed children v.s. the annunaki and the illuminati.

The story is based on the idea of the Monomyth "Hero's Journey" by Joseph Campbell "A hero ventures forth from the world of common day into a region of supernatural wonder: fabulous forces are there encountered and a decisive victory is won: the hero comes back from this mysterious adventure with the power to bestow boons on his fellow man."

And my interest in things occult, essoteric and quantum well as inspired by great artists as Hayao Miyazaki, Moebius, Alejandro Jodorwsky, Grant Morrison, Alan Moore, comic books, star wars and a lot whole of other stuff.

The book will black and white 144 pages and available soon, if you are interested in pre-purchasing one please contact Jen.

Here are a couple of images from the begining of the story

llustration done for Artbook for Darfur, I was contacted by Jorge alderete in mexico city to participate in creating a image for a book of art to pass around to get signatures to present to the United Nations for them to do something about the atrocities that are happening in Darfur.
