Hi, I'm Felix and I write and make art featuring my own unique magic and spirituality. This project offers special access to my magical creative work and advice:
- Printable hi-res versions of artwork that you can color and/or use for crafts (or as spells!)
- Early release and in-progress articles and essays on magic and spirit work
- Photos of and written insights into my magical work and art
- Access to a help forum for spirit and magic-related problems and questions
- The entire manuscript in of my current book in progress (Trash Magic)
- A course on integrating your creative life with a pantheon of spirits based on archetypes particular to your life and personal practice
Where can I see or read your work?
I have several blogs where you can see what I offer! I run the occult, magic and spirit work blog, Merkavah Party Van. From there I publish educational articles that teach people about magic safety, spirit work etiquette, and how to talk to angels without it getting all awkward. This is a public service and it is free. Here's one of my articles on how to perceive energy and spirits. I also maintain For Scrying Out Loud, a tarot blog. As far as seeing my art, this is my art blog, where I post artwork of spirits as well as artwork that is spellwork or otherwise occult in nature. My personal blog is where I write about my day to day experience with spirits and magic and reblog pictures of cats. I've also been on a few podcasts about magical creativity--this one is on art magic and this one is on writing magic.
What can I expect every month?
Twice a month I post hi-res magical art for patrons to print out and use as coloring book pages or in crafts. Some of this art is tarot artwork for an upcoming deck, so you also get a bonus mini lecture on a tarot card every time I post art for it. All of my art is usable for magic and I give instructions on how you can do that. I also post WIP books, articles in advance, and spells/rituals I've been working on. Sometimes I make these posts available to $1 patrons, or I post other special surprises at that level. The spirit work advice forum is regularly updated with new info and with answers to questions, and you direct what's posted by asking what you want to know! If you're in the spiritual creativity course, you also get three lessons a month plus access to a private forum to discuss exercises with your peers. Each tier lets you access all material that's from the tiers that cost less than it.

The Spiritual Creativity Course
Starting in the month of September 2016 I began teaching a course on how to work with The Court of the Work In Progress, a system for leading a creative life in balance with spirituality. It also teaches how to use spirit work and magic to bolster and support your creativity and help you prosper through it. The system and the course have been created under the instruction of my personal pantheon of spirits who give me insight into the creative process. The heart of the work is finding inspiration and healing via creativity. It is meant for writers, artists, and all types of creators, whether pro or hobbyist, who want to develop themselves and their lives as creative works in progress. Learn the magic of art and writing and how to express the unique light that lives inside you. Create your own system for creative work, whether working with spirits or archetypes, and through it, change your world. Here is a more in-depth description of the course.
What's Trash Magic?
Trash Magic is a book about exactly what the title is: kinds of witchcraft and sorcery you can work with only trash, found objects, and other ephemeral things. It was based on a post I made where I listed a bunch of trash magic tips--the post got popular and I realized I had a lot more to say on the subject. When I asked if people wanted a book, I received a resounding YES in response, so I started writing it and posting excerpts to my blog. Trash Magic will be published as a full book when it is complete. I will make the first draft available for all patrons here to read as I write it. I regularly post a PDF and epub of the manuscript as I update its material, making note of where I added things. I also post excerpts from time to time so you don't have to look through a whole PDF for new material. I've got clearance from a publisher interested in Trash Magic to post everything up to the first draft to Patreon. (The revision phases will not be featured on Patreon.)
Are you new to Patreon? Does it seem a bit confusing? There's info on how you pay here. The quick and dry summary: international payments are accepted, you can use Paypal or a credit card, and you can limit the amount of money you contribute per month. This means there's no surprises for you and you can stay within your own budget! My project is set up on a flat monthly contribution so you pay the same regardless of how much content I release a month. This means if I post extra content every now and then, you're still charged the same.
