I am Eli Minaya (aka Bad King) the Co-Author of Angelarium: Book of Emanations. I am the writer and also the Artist that visually developed the Emanations. I created the visual language and symbol system that supports the content within the Book of Emanations.
Alongside Peter Mohrbacher, Angelariums Founder and Visionary, I helped create a universe where nothing, and everything, exists.
A little about my journey with Angelarium.
Three years ago I began work on Angelarium with Peter Mohrbacher. Two years ago, the first book was successfully funded on Kickstarter. The book I helped create was making its way into the hands of people who wanted to better understand the world Peter created 14 years ago, and they were going to use the book I wrote and designed to do it. I felt like a map maker. I couldn’t have asked for more. In fact I didn’t.
I was suddenly a part of something
I was content to let the book and its narrative disseminate among fans of the project. And I quietly went back into my studio to work on new projects. A year ago, Pete convinced me to come to a convention with him to promote the book. Reluctantly I agreed but I’m glad I did. Meeting the people who supported our book and people just discovering it for the first time and seeing that connection happen, right in front of me was one of the best feelings I ever had in my life.
I was suddenly a part of something, in a way I had never expected.
This Kickstarter is a 'Thank you' to the people who have supported Angelarium over the years; as well as a 'Hello' to anyone discovering it for the first time.
This Kickstarter is a way to introduce fans of Angelarium: Book of Emanations to an aspect of the development they may not have been aware of.
A blog I’ve started documents the process, my ideology on design, the construction of the mythology, as well as the collaborative experience.

1. What size are the prints?
All prints are 12x18 inches
2. Do you ship outside of the U.S?
The short answer is "No, not at this time." Currently, the cost of shipping internationally would add an immense obstacle for this Kickstarter and that being the case I've chosen to keep it simple.
3. Where can I watch the videos of your Keter painting?
All videos will be uploaded to youtube and made available on my website Emanations.co I'll be posting them in segments so stay tuned.
4. What about international shipping?
I'm working on it. I will try my best to get rates that make sense for both me and potential backers. You're welcome to email me with further questions on the subject; Eli@Bad-King.com
Risks and challenges
As it always is with Kickstarters, sometimes things are late. While I feel more than confident that I can deliver your backer rewards in a timely manner, I promise to communicate the entire journey with you.
A lot of the reason for my confidence is that the work is done. The art for the prints are made, the pin is designed, the sketch book is already printed. This Kickstarter is about getting it into your hands.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
