I recently retrieved some of my old work files from when I was still with IFS so I decided to share some of them here with you.

This is one of a number of plate illustrations I did for Osprey Publishing's Osprey Adventure series. This one in particular is for The Nazi Occult book. Pls note that although these works may seem somewhat historical they're mostly fictional in nature.
Not exactly sure what's happening here but apparently the book is some sort of tome on necromancy. Consequences of reading it, death or loss of sanity. Done in 2012.

Well, looks like these guys didn't see "Raiders of the Lost Ark"...especially the last scene to have their ilk in it.

I believe that book is the Necromonicon, a book which supposedly devours your soul if you look in it.

There are some doors that are just not meant to be unlocked, some types of power that are just not meant to be controlled, much less studied by humans - particularly those slime-of-humanity type of humans who are without conscience or morality and have a insatiable lust for power and control.

The Nazis qualify as such slime-of-humanity type of humans in spades, and as such... well, this picture depicts the consequences of their trying to harness such power - the very last thing this particular group of Nazis will ever do!
