The Veil of Isis by beckycloonan The Veil of Isis by beckycloonan
(I am all that hath been, and is, and shall be; and my veil no mortal has hitherto raised)

Iím psyched to be able to show this to you guys- a t-shirt for THE SWORD to commemorate their new album APOCRYPHON!! You can order them online ([link]), or find them on tour with the band when they come through your town- along with other amazing shirts by artists like Mike Moses and Andy Belanger.

This was really cool to work on, not only to do a shirt for one of my favorite bands, but I felt like this was an image Iíve had in my head for a really long time and it was almost a relief to get it out on paper. So without hearing the song or knowing what itís really about, I drew a picture of Merlin, finally parting the Veil of Isis in death. So thatís a little story for those of you interested in my thoughts behind the piece!

I remember seeing this freshly inked when you posted and its still just as amazing.  then I also saw it for the first time on the sword merch page, which blew my mind. Did they contact you to do draw this or did they see it and wanna use it??

Wow, that's beautiful. I'm not familiar with the band but I'd definitely wear this, especially considering the story behind the image. Love it!

This looks very interesting. I like the pose of the old man and how he covers the eyes of the character on the BG. Wonderful coloring. Well done! :D
