Hi there, Merveilles! My name is Eden (They / She) and I'm an artist exploring complex feelings with simple shapes.

If you'd like to see more of my work, you can do so at helveticablanc.com

I'm excited to be a part of this instance! πŸ’ž

@zens I'm def a fan of Biblically Accurate Angelsβ„’ πŸ˜‚

@helveticablanc [to the tune of the teenage mutant ninja turtles theme] "Biblically Accurate Arch Angels"
…
"Michaelangelo leads, Gabriel does machines"
"When the evil nebron attacks, these smiting boys will cut him no slack"

@helveticablanc "Now available in a toy store everywhere. Collect them all!"

@helveticablanc Holy crap, these are great! Love the subtle texturing. Also, your use of color is πŸ‘Œ .
Welcome to Merveilles Eden :>.

@rek Aw, thanks so much! I've really been digging your 1-bit illustrations! The shapes are SO GOOD!

@whalefall Thank you! (your avatar got a hearty laugh out of me, btw)

@helveticablanc I really like the stuff that looks like text in the first one. Is it a full writing system or is it just there to look nice?

@montagsoup Thanks! It's part of a writing system I'm working on called Celestial Wormrōte. Mostly just a nice, artistic way to obfuscate English sounds.

@helveticablanc That's super cool! It's definitely one of the best looking writing systems I've seen. It manages to be geometric and complex without looking unrealistic, which I think is a really hard balance to strike.

@montagsoup Wow, thanks! I think the key for me was ligatures. Like, I just start combining consecutive sounds and it makes it look 200% better right away! πŸ˜‚

@helveticablanc aaaah! I already had your work bookmarked, I love it. welcome to merveilles. :)

@helveticablanc hello! welcome to merveilles Eden πŸ‘‹πŸ½πŸ˜Š your art is amazing!

@helveticablanc Hi Eden, it’s nice to meet you, and welcome to Merveilles! I was following your work on .art for a while. I’m glad you’re here.

@helveticablanc welcome eden! I love your work. Glad to have you here with us!

@helveticablanc woah. The pieces you attached look amazing! Kind of reminds me of the album cover for Mac Miller’s album Faces. I love that style! Excited to see what you bring to Mastodon!

@Osava Ooo, interesting comparison! I've never seen the cover, and it looks awesome!

@helveticablanc How nice to see you here! Small world. 😊 I think your art style is a great addition to this instance, FWIW.

@rezmason Thanks so much! It really IS a small world! πŸ˜‚πŸ’ž

@helveticablanc also, eden is the art itself inspired by tarot and archaic archetypes/anything specific? i have a friend who goes by asha eden who i think would adore your work… shes at theawakeningsf.com =] reiki stuff.

@ringo A lot of it is a syncretic blend of chaos magick and dialogue with the particularly nasty version of evangelical Christianity that I was raised with. Much of it is me coming to terms with the archetypes given by my upbringing, and then reshaping them into something more powerful.

I'll have to check into your friend's stuff! πŸ’ž

@helveticablanc what an *excellent* inroad to what sounds like a lot of positive healing; Re-framing and in my eyes, - based on how you put it- a really beautiful way to grow into new avenues of perception, agility, and strength.

@helveticablanc boosted because it’s exciting to see another person taking all of life and choosing how they wish to be defined by their experiences, versus buying into a patterned program of say, acting dis-enfranchised from the self. 😁
