Apple pie moonshine is a blissful, wonderful thing.
A warm, familliar empty
                          fills the home as they sleep.
                          And the sound of Their claws
                          from across the tile floor
                         (as from the inside of my belly)
                          warn me that this is the last moment.
                          That all I must do to bar Their ghosts from my breath is follow my family to the Dreaming.

Far simpler a thing
                    to physically eviscerate this plague from my stomach,
                    to sever the member;
                    than to lose that time
                    from living.

I weep to God
               to amputate my grip and
               appropriate my instincts.
              "Please take it away from me-
               I need something to hold on to."
               Let me wall myself in the cask of this slumber.
               Let the feelers of sleep caress me in shadow.
               Let me avoid the *throbbing* dead
               of this haunted verile.

Unhuman : A haunted study. by CEZacherl
  • Mood: Horror
  • Listening to: an odd inner-babbling.
  • Reading: a friend's short story.
  • Watching: Marvel's Daredevil.
  • Playing: with the notion of deleting this journal.
  • Eating: the aftertaste of...
  • Drinking: ...lackluster Kurig coffee.
"Drown me in the eloquence of your work."
    I said.  And she did. So I was
    at the bottom of her thousand-league snow.

I have seen things I shouldn't.
have felt the cosmic.

Like powdered skin cupped magnificently in my palm,
the sensation lingers.

Perhaps we can't navigate
all the debris-splintered charnel
without holding His hand.

But damned if I'm not trying.
And so I'm trying
on everyone.

The white of the Ash, it streams down her throat
in its hallowed, powdery fill.

She clenches her teeth, and I lower my eyes.

There is no time when I am not alone.
  • Mood: Horror
  • Listening to: the thin whirl of the bathroom fan.
  • Reading: Needful Things.
  • Watching: Black Sugar.
  • Playing: my fingers against the soft skin inside my elbow.
  • Eating: the quiet.
  • Drinking: nothing.
Anulka, Priestess of the Black Goat of the Woods by CEZacherl
Anulka, Priestess of the Black Goat of the Woods
Look very closely, what do you see?


This is my first time using paint for snow-effects. There are a few things I'd rather be a little different (paint lends little control comparatively to ink, c'est la vie) but ultimately I'm really pleased with how this one came out. I need to extend my gratitude to the talented Elisanth for allowing me to use her modeling photography as reference for the Anulka character. The contrast between a stark, sleek beauty amongst the shattered debris of the winter forest-bed is *exactly* what I'd hoped for. And a huge thank you to sepraven for inspiring me to go all the further on the quality of the forest (check out Sep's work.. it is out of this world amazing) & rock out the snow.

Love this DA community :)


P.S.: You're looking for eyes, mouths, portals to darker dimensions and *maybe* even bits of a mangled corpse. But yes, they are purposefully hidden in the "appearance" of natural geography. Look up the mythology of Lovecraft's 'Dark Young', they terrify the heck out of me (consider thinking of them around 2AM when all you have is a thin camping tent between you and the dark of the forest) and this is my homage to that dreadful admiration.

the Rectory movie poster CAMPAIGN1 (2) by CEZacherl

This is the final product they went with for this version of the film poster. They dropped some mildew & astral effects and plugged in the movie info. All in all I'm pretty proud of how this turned out. Goes to show that BW artwork is pretty adaptable to the needs of the customer. Either I can color it to your specifications, or you can add in your own series of creepy effects as many times as you desire.

The original Black & White version is here;
