Check out this dark model Condesa Erzebet Morrigan from Argentina.
Honesty, expressionism and catharsis can be read from Loughborough’s impulsive and intuitive mark making, which strive to grasp a comprehension of the human condition.
Drawing inspiration from various themes concerned with Camus/Kierkegaard’s notion of ‘Absurdity’, each drawing becomes a decadent theater of emotion, sexuality and movement. Lonely human forms seem to struggle and ponder the sporadically lit space they occupy without reaching the point of a dramatic emotional encounter. Couples and groups of people cling together searching for an antidote to the revelations of their existence.
Personifications of latent hopes and emotions wait in vain to be realized. No specific conclusions can be made to the meaning of the individual works aside from the acknowledgement and indulgence of image, expression and technique. This reflects absurdity’s philosophical model of observing our potentially meaningless existence without the sterilization of Nihilism. The irony of religious motifs act to enhance the awkward balance between secularism and piousness that the characters depicted seem to grapple with.
Questions are frequently asked of the viewer about how we interpret our oft-untold fears and desires.

Noah Veil was found as a John Doe in November of 2007 on a beach in Atlantic Canada, water in his lungs, heart stopped, the victim of either an accident, foul play or attempted suicide. Searches of Canadian and international databases turned up no records matches on DNA or fingerprints, nor missing persons reported matching his description. Afflicted by amnesia and with no one stepping forward to identify him, it was taken under advisement not to actively search for relatives or associates by publishing his image, due to the uncertain nature of his circumstances. With no idea where he was from, when he was born, his name or who his family is, he was legally adopted by the family of the man who discovered him, with whom he has lived since.
Sylvain Montenegro was raised in isolation in the foothills of California’s Sierra Nevada mountains where he was home-schooled and had infrequent contact with people outside his immediate family, his primary exposure to the outside world being the internet. At the age of 20, with the aid of his older brother, he managed to manipulate his parents into moving the family down into civilization and was able to begin teaching himself music programming and production.
Atlantic Canada is known neither as a breeding ground for hard rock/heavy metal, nor techno/industrial, so Noah Veil took to Craigslist to find a musical partner. Placing ads in major metropolitan areas around North America, in January, 2014 he received a response from SF Bay Area programmer and aspiring producer Sylvain Montenegro. Finding common ground in their shared enthusiasm for metal, punk, techno, power pop and goth, the two began collaborating via fileshare, which led to the production of their full length album, Forever Immortal. With Veil recording and uploading the basic foundations of vocals, guitars, bass and drum machine, Montenegro assumed responsibility for programming synths and loops and editing. He was also to enlist and record session drummer Christopher Clifton to replace the drum machine tracks and stellar vocalist Rachel DuMouchel for additional vocals. The process was completed with Veil traveling to California to co-mix and take photos. The duo signed a licensing and distribution deal in August, 2016 with German-based record label 7hard/7us.

Where were you born?
Zaandam, The Netherlands
Where do you currently live?
Breda, The Netherlands !
How long have you been modeling?
I started doing photo-shoot when I was 16. Nothing professionally, I just enjoyed being creative with my looks and working together with photographers, and that’s what I still rather call it; making art!
What kind of work have you done and for what companies?
I’ve done plenty of sponsorship’s by now, with for example Attitude Holland, Killstar, Queen of Darkness. I enjoy working with them because they all let me be free in what kind of photo-shoots I’ll do for them, with who (many of my friends are photographers, real good one’s!) and I will create my own concept, styling with the items they’ll let me pick and send me, and sometimes I even do the editing myself!
I really prefer this artistic freedom, rather than going somewhere and having a make-up artist and stylist kinda decide the whole thing, you know.
What are your hobbies outside of modeling?
I’m a full-time art student and artist. These are no hobbies, I run two businesses: Psychara Art and Psypuff. Though, I would also consider my hobbies, some I work really hard for..!
We took a peak at your artwork and we love it! What inspired your style of art?
My artwork is always inspired by my fascinations, which mostly is anything dark & mysterious, the occult and pagan history, alchemy, old legends, songs, and a lot of inspiration comes from nature. My illustration work is sketchy and mostly black and white; I like to work quite fast and not too perfectly or precise, I have no patience for that! Unless it’s my textile work, then I do like to get very precise!
What is your favorite band?
Opeth! Love ‘m.
What is your favorite type of music?
Oh, I listen to só many different genres.. I guess I’d say metal, even though that’s a pretty broad genre as well. But I also listen to movie or game soundtracks when I’m working, or crazy music like Igorrr or Venetian Snares. Or Beyoncé, yep.
How would you describe your personality?
Positive and passionate! I’m always happy, try to see the good things in all. But I can also be very ambivalent about things I’m passionate about, and I will stand my ground but also be open-minded. A little bit of everything perhaps, haha.
What is your favorite personal style? What type of Goth would you classify yourself as?
Strega fashion, which isn’t really an original goth style, but definitely something that is coming up online as a legit thing. It’s a fashion that has no rules or boundaries besides the only rule being inspired by witches. And that’s personal for everyone, so it’s a very limitless style!
Vampire or Werewolf?
What’s your biggest fear?
I’m gonna sound real cheesy here, but losing the one’s I love.
What’s the one thing you want to do more than anything? Top of your bucket list.
Swim with humpback whales in the wild! Check it out on Youtube there’s videos from GoPro on that and it’s so freaking magical.
You say that you are a forest witch. Tell us what that means and entails.
I am a witch, but not like Wiccan or anything. I don’t know, the witch part is quite personal, it’s something that I am and I do practice some magic, such as runes, crystals, tarot. I get a lot of inspiration from the forest, like, pine tree forests are my obsession! Whenever I’m feeling stressed or overworked, I need to recharge in the forest. Which sounds very floaty and weird perhaps, but it’s like how other people recharge with friends in a café, or at home with a book.
But the witch part is pretty spiritual yeah, but also quite personal and I wouldn’t really know how to explain it better..!
Anything else you want to say to your fans?
I LOVE YOU ALL, y’all cool and beautiful <3
I like pretty things. Not pretty as in rainbows and glitter, but beauty in the dark. So when I saw these designer pieces I had to share. Clothing can be truly spectacular and breathtaking. Clothing can be beautiful. These designers whether they intended to or not tapped into their inner Dark Soul and produced some beautiful clothing.
I love winter. I love art. I love Goth. So what could be better than merging all three. 🙂
We welcome an amazing artist whose creativity and proclivities lean to the dark side. Check out Matthias Stobers work!
