       The Ars Goetia is a book derived from the 17th-century grimoire The Lesser Key of Solomon. It contains descriptions of the many demons encountered and captured by the biblical King Solomon, famously translated from Latin into English by S. L. MacGregor Mathers and published by Aleister Crowley.


      Goetia: Kings of Hell  is a 40+ page illustrated art book that depicts the demon Kings and Princes found within the Ars Goetia.  Accompanying each demon will be the original translations by Mathers & Crowley, offering descriptions, magic seals, and warnings when encountering each infernal spirit. This is Volume 1 in a 4 part series that will compile all 72 demons of the Ars Goetia. Follow along at artofgoetia.com!

       The Deck of Kings is a 16-card oracle deck that can be used on it's own or in conjunction with a tarot deck to divine the unknown. It features the illustrations from Goetia: Kings of Hell and each demon's respective sigil. Users may reference the book or intuit guidance directly from the images on matters of daily insight or a specific subject. 

A copy of the Deck of Kings is included in every reward tier at $50 and above. The deck is also available to any tier as a +$10 add-on (Shippings covered, no limit on number). 

     As an artist and lover of mythic lore, the descriptions within the Ars Goetia have been a bounty of inspiration. Each of the demons within the book are designed and illustrated as a labor of love that pay homage to their history while offering a vivid and unique interpretation.  

 Each of the Kickstarter prints are of a Limited 1st Edition batch for this campaign!

  • 8" x 10"
  • Luster prints with archival ink for the best quality
  • Printed to bleed
  •  Signed and proofed by the artist as 1st Edition 

                                   Looking for more demons? 

I will be painting my way through the entire 72 demons within the Ars Goetia and will add them through future volumes! Early backers will be added to a running list and receive additional goodies with each new volume.

Risks and challenges

As a working designer and illustrator I am well aware of the time commitment and labor involved in bringing a product to life, I feel confident that I will get your rewards to you in a timely and professional manner. While there are always problems that can arise, I am certain that I have allotted the necessary time/funding to deal with any difficulties. That being said, I will maintain constant communication regarding the project's progress along the way including posts of many of the pieces as they are finished. Please feel free to reach out to me with any concerns or questions.
