Abaddon The Destroyer

Abaddon the Destroyer by Jason Beam with Kristen Rozanski

“And he opened the pit of the abyss; and there went up a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit… They have over them as king the angel of the abyss: he hath the name Abaddon.” – Revelations 9

Some astrologists say that when all the planets in our solar system are aligned in a cosmic row, this heralds the coming of the end times – as the abyss opens up the demon to first arise to lay waste to the earth is Abaddon, accompanied by a swarm of locusts. This piece was the first illustration in quite some time that I was able to plan out and develop without much delay – I was also fortunate enough to meet actress and comedienne Kristen Rozanski who had the perfect look for what I was thinking for this piece.
