Slewfoot: A Tale of Bewitchery by Brom

Slewfoot: A Tale of Bewitchery. A new Novel by artist and author Brom. Published by Tor Nightfire

Set against the backdrop of colonial America in 1666.

At the core, this is a book about perceptions and how our upbringing conditions us to see. The story presents two contrasting ways of relating to the world. In one, humanity’s relationship with the earth and with the Gods of old connect them to nature, where life cycles are dependant on creating balance. In contrast, a new paradigm is set rigidly in place by the values of a Puritan community. who use their Christian dogma to instill fear in the community through social pressure and religious intolerance.

We can’t help but admire Abitha for her endurance against all odds. She struggles to be true to herself while in conflict with the prejudices of her father and church. Yet she clings to the remnants of the pagan wisdom that her mother taught her. It is this knowledge that allows her to put her trust in the wildfolk. more » “Slewfoot: A Tale of Bewitchery by Brom”

Interview with the Artist Cirius

Q: How are you inspired to create the powerful and compelling art you are known for?

A: A story. Story always comes first.
It is never for decorative purposes or to simply paint something that is beautiful.
History plays a huge role in my art, as does the physiological behaviour of the human species. When I do research for a project, I always discover interesting facts and stories that relate to me. Stories of power particularly intrigue me and I try to portray this in my paintings which include images that evoke an emotional response from the viewer.

Interview with the Artist Andrea Castaneda

Q: Tell us about your art technique and what first sparked an interest in this medium.

A: I’m a mix media painter. I’m a very curious person. I like experimenting with different techniques like acrylic, oil, pastels, markers and ink. So some paintings that I do are fully 100% oil color, others I use mix media, I add inks, and acrylic paint. I love to add golden leafs to my artwork and sometimes I add abalone leafs. You can see some of my work that I also paint over plexiglass. I really enjoy having fun while I’m painting.

Q: Do you use any special materials, or do anything out of the ordinary when you are creating your art, If so, please tell us about it?

A: I added golden leafs, abalone leafs and I started to add some glitter to my artwork.
