The first time I saw the word Abracadabra was in a British Masonic Encyclopedia. I was attracted to the disposition of letters and the explanation that the triangle of words was a old magic amulet. Needless to say, I made my own amulet and put it around my neck.
Abracadabra is a spell incantation used as a magic word in conjuring demonic tricks that historically was believed to have healing powers when inscribed on an amulet. The first known mention of the word Abracadabra was in the 2nd century AD in a poem called De Medicina Praecepta or Principles of General Medicine.
Abracadabra sounds as the Aramaic word “Abrahadabra” which roughly translates into “I will create as I speak.”
My original high resolution print for apparel is in the Spells section should you want to conjure demons for your own benefit. You can order and customize the t-shirt in several background colors and sizes. It’s a great night party tshirt for full moon!

Every time there is a full moon, I see the face of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy stamped on the moon. I’m not surprised because my relation with her is extremely powerful to explain it in short lines. In my Witches altar, I have her photograph (the only one) which was personally dedicated and signed to me.
As a matter of fact, one night after my only surgical intervention in 1994 I woke up four hours later thinking about her. I had a small transistor radio and I listened to the news that Jackie had died that night during my medical intervention. Her funeral mass events are explained here. National Public Radio said that during the funeral, Maurice Tempelsman read the poem Ithaka (1911) written by Constantine P. Cavafy, who also happens to be my favorite author. The translation and alternative translation are found in this page.
As my tribute to the only First American Lady I know, I’ve made her typographical portrait that I called Jackie Kennedy and The Devil. The typographical portrait includes another Cavafy’s poem entitled Hidden Things (1908), which is a poem that represents my philosophy of life.
Hidden Things by C.P. Cavafy
From all I did and all I said
let no one try to find out who I was.
An obstacle was there distorting
the actions and the manner of my life.
An obstacle was often there
to stop me when I’d begin to speak.
From my most unnoticed actions,
my most veiled writing -
from these alone will I be understood.
But maybe it isn’t worth so much concern,
so much effort to discover who I really am.
Later, in a more perfect society,
someone else made just like me
is certain to appear and act freely.
The high resolution print is available in the Witches section should you want to remember why the President Kennedy’s administration was the only Camelot in America. It won’t happen again!

Fallen Angel is an illustration that I curated based on one of Gustave Dore’s engravings. The illustration is found in John Milton’s famous epic poem, Paradise Lost, written in 1667.
The story begins with Satan, one of the characters of the book, and of course, my favorite one. Satan awakes in hell, having lost his rebellion against God in heaven. He awakens his followers; begins to plot revenge against God by corrupting God’s newest creation, Man; and convenes a council of the fallen angels.
The illlustration is dramatic and majestic at the same time and you can find the high print resolution for apparel in the Fantasy section.

According to the Necronomicon, the Book of the Laws of the Dead, the Devil’s Trinity consists of three spiritual characters - Satan, the Devil and Lucifer.
As an expert in demonology, I want to give you a new original and unique skin tattoo that will empower your mystical life. It is my spellbinding tribute to the only power I know on Earth that rules Mankind, the Glory of the Devil.
The high resolution vector print is available in apparel in the Tattoos section for your casual wear collection in several background colors and sizes. Enjoy your new life and new friends!

Since I was a child watching Captain America I always wanted to make a design of the Devil superhero logo. Something like Captain Devil in action colors.
So, here it is in all its demonic splendor with evil powers. The high resolution print is available in apparel in the Magicians section. Get your Devil superhero logo print with the magic numbers 666 of the Beast and amaze your friends.
So, you want a real devil’s tattoo stamped on your skin forever, huh? I find this stamp is usually overlooked by most people looking for the real thing in functional dark designs.
If you look closer to the illustrations of the book Nine Gates of the Kingdom of Shadows written by Aristide Torchia, you’ll find Lucifer’s fingerprint signature stamped with initials at the bottom of the engravings. Better than a Harley-Davidson commercial ad tattoo for chubbies in leather.
If you don’t know about fingerprint authentication, look here. No two individuals—even identical twins—have fingerprints that are exactly alike.
I traced the tiny signature as a vector and the print is available in apparel in the Tattoo section if you want to be proud of your Master and sport to the world your satanic allegiance.

Evil fantasy art is very difficult to produce for apparel. It has to be cool and at the same time sadness should be consistent with a world both familiar and strange. The conflict of interest in the design allows a force with great power and malevolence to play with natural elements versus human elements.
In this case, I’ve combined a Celtic purple moon in ascendant phase from the lunar year with an innocent wicked fairy, who in many fairy tales such as in Perrault’s Sleeping Beauty, has been cursed by her godmother to remain in the moon on her fifteen’s birthday until she finds love.
To order, the high resolution print is in apparel in the Witches section as part of my collection of female villains. If I would write a fantasy book about it, I would call it ‘The Legend of the Purple Moon Princess’ to remind the reader that in every rare purple moon there is an innocent girl transformed into a wicked fairy waiting to find love.
