Hand
of Doom

Sulfur

So interesting to see some esoteric posters of future reading or magical shows, there are like a common aesthetic that links all of them, i believe its like an aura. This design is inspired in these posters.
The hand of Doom tries to create a bond between chiromancy and spiritual sessions and at the same time envolves them in our very loved alchemy “bubble”.

At the sides of the design there are opposites, Sun-Moon; Material-Spiritual, Rational-Emotional. These opposites allow the formation of a complex, yet perfect, circle and an ascendent/descendent triangle. And that is how we all are, right?
