Aleister Crowley portrait

Some may know him as the possible anti-Christ, some may know him as an inspirational philosopher. He founded the religious philosophy of Thelema and was the designer, though not the artist, of my favorite tarot deck, the Crowley Toth. But above all, he is to spirituallity, the occult and the esoteric what the Beatles where to music. Some live him, some hate him, some wrote songs about him. I did a portrait, even now... even without knowing him, his visage leaves an impression, an impression I tried to capture.

What you see here, is an edited version from a smartphone capture. Enjoy....
