Coat of Arms

Four Crown Princes of Hell Talismans


Some sketches I created recently under the Infernal Names theme [Hellmark]. Interesting how they came to resemble medallions:

Satan talisman by DBlackthorne on deviantART

SATAN: From hellfire, the pentagram reveals a reflective visage; engaged in the sinister stare, enhancing the black flame within. The flames of Lust, passion, ingenuity, creativity, and infernal purity. ∞

Lucifer talisman by DBlackthorne on deviantART

LUCIFER: Eyes blackened with infernal hate, appears the Dark Angel of rebellion which leads to independence, hellement of Air represented here as the lightning bolt and demonic wings. What may appear as an inverted cross pendent therein is also a sword of War. “Better to rule in Hell, than serve in heaven”. ∞

Belial talisman by DBlackthorne on deviantART

BELIAL: The mighty Beast manifests with hellements of earth, the mark of The Satanimal, the cavernous stalactites crowned with black horns and encircled with black thorns. The bull as Moloch representing strength and ferocity, while the sulphur sigil is boldly emblazoned upon the defiant forehead. ∞

Leviathan Talisman by DBlackthorne on deviantART

LEVIATHAN: Rising as mighty Cthulhu, crowned with a Neptunian pitchfork as scepter for the ruler of the great raging sea. An overall Lovecraftian impression, note the eyeballs at the points of the pentagram looking back at you. ∞


St. Charles & Carpenter Avenue footage


Quite a find! Not My own, but still a graduation day at St. Charles Borromeo Catholic School in North Hollywood, CA, albeit mine was Jr. High. The uniforms are all the same, as is the building and surrounding structures, rendering this piece of footage timeless.

Additionally, the location was also used in one of the scenes in the background of "Merchants of Death" in the Knight Rider series.

As an amusing side note, after the recent sex scandal disclosures of February of this year, Cardinal Roger Mahony was relegated to quietly reside at this perish and was stripped of public duties. ∞

An educational film shot at Carpenter Avenue Elementary School in Studio City, CA, where I attended from 5th-6th grades. However, this film was made before I arrived. Considering it is quite beautiful and idyllically set in the local hills, I can see why this location was chosen. Seems like they went on a zoo field trip that day.

Also, this school was highlighted in the film Monster Squad where the boys attended. ∞
