DESCRIBE YOUR ART PRACTICE.

I usually let the Gods take the wheel and quickly draw a representation of Them, then I ink it in a felt tip marker. Afterwards, I photograph the drawing and place it through a program to break the line work and scratch it. After it's scratchy, I place it in an appropriate backdrop through an editing program, mostly photoshop. The hardest part is attempting to ask Them how they wish to be depicted through my stylings.

DESCRIBE YOUR RELIGIOUS PRACTICE.

I practice Gaulish Polytheism, but very particular flavors of it. Firstly, I'm a Bolgos, which poetically means 'person who swells with fury', and then a Leitodubrākos, or 'gray water person'. Being one of the Bolgoi means that I worship Gods found in Gallia Belgica (mainly), but being a Leitodubrākos means that there are regional Gods found in the biome that I live with whom no one else has interacted with directly. These are very simplified explanations of course. These religio-cultures are martially and athletically focused.

HOW DO YOUR ARTISTIC AND RELIGIOUS PRACTICES INTERSECT?

Well, as I said above, I ask the Gods how They wish to be depicted in my style. There is also a hint of canticumancy that happens when I begin the process. I may hear a song that has a note from a God, and it will help guide my vision of Them.
