"The Red Dragon & Goat of the Arte". Pen and ink on nostalgia paper, 2013. Part of Volume I of II of The Testament of Cyprian the Mage by Jake Stratton-Kent. 
"I turned several leaves upon one I found perfectly drawn a Dragon and a goat calmly laying together. The goat had drawn upon its knees hieroglyphics that read Arte. As I looked upon this it seemed both strange and yet familiar: but a still greater surprise was awaiting me. The dragon and the goat became enlivened, moving their eyes and increasing in size. Finally, leaving the book, they were prostrated before me; each speaking these words in a human voice: I am your servant, command and you will be obeyed.”

A pleasing to the eye! Some pictures of The Testament of Cyprian the Mage by Jake Stratton-Kent. They are out today and will ship, to those who pre-ordered. You can still buy the Starry Heaven edition. Honestly, I haven’t yet a book of that splendor in my shelf and I’m feeling honored to contribute a small part to this. Find more informations here:

I returned home: never such a flood of blossoms Welcomed me so. A pounding in the field. And in the grove God’s powers slept. I’ve seen the river, slope and shire entranced, And you, my brothers, heirs of a future-sun. Your eyes rest, harboring a dream, Once in you, yearning thoughts alter the blood. My sorrowful life leans toward slumber, But the grace of Heaven’s promise rewards. The fervent shall never pass through the Kingdom. I shall be Earth and then hero’s grave. To be fulfilled the sacred sons draw near. With them arrives the second age, love manifest. The world births love once again. I’ve spoken the spell, and drawn the compass. Before the fall of night, I will be caught. Those above will wander cherished fields On winged soles, aglow in the grasp of God.

"Hyperion" by Stefan George



I returned home: never such a flood of blossoms
Welcomed me so.
A pounding in the field. And in the grove God’s powers slept.
I’ve seen the river, slope and shire entranced,
And you, my brothers, heirs of a future-sun.
Your eyes rest, harboring a dream,
Once in you, yearning thoughts alter the blood.
My sorrowful life leans toward slumber,
But the grace of Heaven’s promise rewards.
The fervent shall never pass through the Kingdom.
I shall be Earth and then hero’s grave.
To be fulfilled the sacred sons draw near.
With them arrives the second age, love manifest.
The world births love once again.
I’ve spoken the spell, and drawn the compass.
Before the fall of night, I will be caught.
Those above will wander cherished fields
On winged soles, aglow in the grasp of God.



"Hyperion" by Stefan George

Ich habe ein paar Illustrationen für Kinit Her angefertigt, die bald in Form einer 12 Vinyl Single das Tageslicht erblicken werden. Geplante Veröffentlichung ist September, über Pesanta Urfolk.

Den ersten Track – „Hyperion“, kann man bereits auf Bandcamp hören. Eine Adaption eines Gedichtes von Stefan George.

(I did some illustrations for Kinit Her, which will soon see the light as a 12 vinyl single, through Pesanta Urfolk. The first track - „Hyperion“, can be streamed over at Bandcamp. It is adapted from a poem by Stefan George.)

 „Die einäugige Muse“ - Cover- und Bookletillustration.

Wie ich bereits sagte, handelt das Hörspiel vom Briefwechsel zwischen Christoph Martin Wieland und Sophie Brentano, auf der Grundlage originaler Briefzitate. Sowie über die Zeit auf dem Wielandsgut in Oßmannstedt bei Weimar und dem darauf folgenden Ableben Brentanos.

 („Die einäugige Muse“ - cover and booklet illustration.

Like I said, the radio play is about the correspondence between Christoph Martin Wieland and Sophie Brentano, on the basis of original letter quotes. The time on the Wielandsgut in Oßmannstedt by Weimar and the subsequent demise of Brentano.)

Hi Oliver, how are you?

Hey Fillipo, I’m doing well – just normal tiredness. Right now, i’m hunting a buzzing fly to avoid creative work. And you?

I’m fine too, thanks! Can you introduce yourself?

Sure. My name is Oliver and I am a 28 years old illustrator from Weimar, Germany. I just started my career as an illustrator and do also my first freelance jobs. Actually I have not really started yet, still preparing and filling my portfolio (slowly). But in not so distant future I see myself working on larger things. Soon, some of my work ‘ll be represented along with several other artists in a limited art magazine. And I think this will turn out nicely.
