The Illustrator And The Printmaker

Blial Cabal is a collaborative art collection between Husband and wife duo, Steven & Maranda who live in the Foothills of California's Sierra Nevada Mountains. From the very beginning of our relationship we spent most of our free time creating art together so it din't take long for us to realize that we had a mutually beneficial and interdependent skill-set, thus in 2011 Blial Cabal (meaning Secret Art Collective) was born! 

Equally intrigued by all things Metal & Macabre, we have found a plethora of inspiration among the Dark Arts and Occult. Our aim is to provide Uniquely Macabre creations fueled by music, fine arts, literature, and all things esoteric.

The Magick is in the Details! 

Metal nibs have their origins as far back as ancient Egypt and were made of metals like copper and bronze.  

Nibs are sensitive to variations of pressure and speed, producing a line that naturally varies in thickness; and they can also produce a finer line than any fountain pen.
