The Daemon's Project will be an art book/fantasy story which is actually a philosophical look at the issues we have as humans. Dark Steampunk in design, It is written for artists, empaths, kindred spirits, old souls, etc and is meant to help with the creative process especially for people who suffer with depression, self-esteem issues, anxiety, etc. and continuously have an ongoing war inside their head about choices.
The story centers around a scientific endeavor by Dr. Grymm studying 13 Sister Daemons who live in the darkness at the beginning of time and hold some sort of strong tether to our dream world and us as humans.
The Daemons are:
Each of the daemons reflects a different characteristic of human nature. The story is set up like a scientific journal left behind by a scientist who was studying them using a device that could capture their images through dreams and nightmares. It tackles duality in words, challenges the way we think, and hopefully reaches out to some people on a deeper level using philosophy and personal challenges.
The book will consist of not only illustrations, but also photographs. I am working with 13 women to create each of those Daemons using custom makeup, masks, prosthetics, costumes and props. Though the book is the final product, I am curating a gallery show for 2019 to celebrate the project and all involved with an interactive experience about the story. I am going to launch an Indigogo campaign to make this all happen.
