Behind the Screen
Everything on this shop is illustrated and/or designed by this freak in the pictures, my designs only exist under my shop name Abysm Internal and in PutridusCor online portfolios. If you see my artwork being sold somewhere else it is theft, please send me a quit note, I'll burn them to the ground, and add them to the Wall of Shame!
I started what became a moderately successful Etsy shop in late 2018, which was then arbitrarily closed by them in June 2021 due to still unclear reasons. This website came to life this year 2021.
Abysm Internal & Putridus Cor
Abysm Internal refers to the turmoil inside us, it can be overwhelmingly beautiful or devastatingly dark, and like a mythological beast it always threatens to consume us, it gets a bite out of us, but somehow, or ideally, we strive and move forward.
'Putridus Cor' has been my artist nickname since I started painting and drawing seriously at 15, it means rotten heart in Latin. Since then I've branched into more colorful styles, but grew so fond of the name that can't let it fade.
I always had a love for the darkness, dragons, mythology about hell and demons, and later on the beautiful Gothic culture, I'm also a fan of Steampunk, Cyberpunk, Fantasy, other mythologies, and cultures, the world and so on.
As soon as I graduated as a designer/illustrator in Canada in 2014, I got rid of most of my things and got into a journey around the world that doesn't feel like it ended. I live in Taiwan now, closer to the culture and artworks that fascinate me the most and learning the language bit by bit, 中文漢字漂亮極了！
When not working for the shop, I work freelance with my trusted macbook pro and (new! yay!) Wacom tablet. I design, draw and illustrate, but sometimes what I like most is combining existing images (most of them mine) into something new, like an image DJ of sorts.
For Abysm, some of the artwork on my store are full illustrations, most are designs made of a combination of my own work (ALWAYS the center piece!) and purchased-then-altered graphic resources for the background (only exception being the old "vintage Medusa" which uses an old design for the center), occasionally I use also altered public domain and royalty free pictures for textures. I make all the artwork and templates, and have third-party partners print and sew the products, and ship them for me, they are located in the US, Canada, Mexico and Latvia.
This page exists because of you!
New stuff coming up every so often! I'm thrilled to continue this store, continue exploring topics, making new designs, and get better at it!
Every Like, Favorite, message, comment, purchase and/or review I've received has been a stepping stone forward, and it means the world, any type of artist is no one without the audience that makes their work possible.
Thank you always for your love and support! 🖤
