So for this school project, I had to produce 3 instalments on a panel that describe a certain concept or analogy, which would also need to closely relate to myself and my personality.

I’ve been following astrology for years now, and placements which I really like are those in my first house. Although Chiron is there, my Scorpio rising is accompanied by my Pluto, Lilith and Mars making a conjunction in my first house in Sagittarius, with Mars being in the second house, forming a grand trine with my Leo Venus and Aries Moon. (Nicole Kidman from the movie Eyes Wide Shut have similar 1st house and Venus placements). I am a very intense person. I would like to think I ooze sexual appeal and am a magnetic person (although my romantic life tells me otherwise) and my eyes are extremely piercing that I scare myself sometimes.

So for this project, the first thing I thought about was to let a demon represent that part of myself, that part of my first house.

Here she is, absolutely loving her status as an almighty goddess. The devil herself works hard, loving and revelling in all the mighty power and magnetism she possesses. She’s a naughty fox, and she completely embraces it. She knows she’s bad, and she looks good doing it. The red circle in the middle is homage to that of the movie Eyes Wide Shut, where the creepy ritual is conducted in the middle of a red circle for everyone to witness and judge.

This next panel places the same person in a church. A place which shares obvious parallels to hell. It is cult based, where everyone is ingrained to believe and practice a certain kind of lifestyle and have a certain kind of outlook in the world. However, where satan and the devil is taught to be evil for establishing that sort of structure, religion and churches and well established in society to be places of worship and reverence.

A devil being a part of a church is how I would describe that of what I saw in Eyes Wide Shut. A cultish and unsettling atmosphere. While the church is sanctioned and integrated as a normal part of a functioning society, there is no doubt that there has always been this tingling sensation of being a part of something inappropriate and heinous. A devil in a church is basically the premise of the obscure and frightening party in the movie being carried out in such an organised and proper way it almost seems like the activity seems pure.

So far, this has been my favourite panel. The analogy and concept are sound and the artwork is definitely the best among the others. But there are more to come!

          They call you an 𝑜𝓂𝑒𝓃,
                        Only here to torment.
