I recently reached out to Blial Cabal, the husband and wife duo that has been creating art together for quite some time now. Steven and Maranda have been happily married for over six years and have been working together side by side creating what they love. Steven has been professionally illustrating since 2014, while Maranda does the screen printing. She has been doing professional screen printing work for over ten years, you can see some of the work they create together being made via their Instagram. It’s extremely satisfying watching the printing process.
Above you can see a short time lapse video of Steven working on the “Baphomet II” Illustration.
Some may find the art from Blial Cabal to be scary, or frightening, as they often take inspiration from dark arts & occult like imagery. They mention via their website that they take a lot of inspiration from music, fine arts, literature, and all things Esoteric & Occult. Learn more about this creative art duo as they answer a few questions below.
