It was the names that got me inspired.
Back in 2005, I discovered that there were thousands of named angels throughout multiple mythologies. I've been hooked ever since and Angelarium has been a part of my life every single day. Even when I'm not paying attention to it, it's gone out on the internet and had a life of its own. The name of the project has come to define the idea of surreal angelic figures and the fan base around it has inspired me to continue to create new designs for it.

Purchasing Angelarium Artwork
Many of the items on the store are listed as "Limited Edition". These items are produced in small runs, designed to sell out after a short time. Once their supply is exhausted, they become permanently unavailable.
Most Limited Editions sell out after 2 - 6 months and after that, they may become available in other smaller and limited formats, such as "Legacy Prints".
These photo prints are smaller than their Limited Edition counterparts and are reproduced expressly for special events like conventions and my monthly Patreon print subscription. Click here to become a member.
The availability of these prints is always for a limited time. Whether that means for a single weekend at a live event, or for just one month on Patreon.
Q: I'm trying to make an order but I'm getting an error message. What happened? Have I been charged?
A: Your card will only be charged if your order has completed successfully. This error is very common and almost exclusively due to an incorrect billing address zip code. If your card is associated with your business or your old house, our system requires you to provide that address in the "billing address" fields.
Q: Why does the shipping cost so much?
A: All of our items are made special or customized here in Chicago and then shipped out of our office at "The Secret Vault". That means all orders outside the US need to be shipped through expensive International services. If you believe your shipping cost is larger than it should be in error, you might be right. Feel free to reach out to us at MohrbacherArt@gmail.com to confirm that the shipping was calculated correctly. We might be able to get it to you cheaper.
Q: My tracking information isn't updating. Where is my package?
A: USPS is terrible at sharing tracking information. We're sorry, we wish it was more transparent. Please be patient if this happens. In the rare event that your package is lost, we will first work with USPS to find it. If it can't be found, we'll replace it.
Q: Will you be illustrating Michael, The Qliphoth, Metatron, etc?
A: Maybe. There are plans to illustrate many of the most prominent figures in angelic lore, but I'm taking every piece as it comes. Please be patient waiting for your favorite.
Q: Are you taking requests?
A: I'll be illustrating whichever Angels I decide on. Sometimes fan input has swayed me, but I can't make any guarantees.
Q: What's happening with my book order?
A: The Book of Watchers and The Book of Emanations are supposed to be in stock, but they're not. We're very late getting them completed and printed. They were supposed to have shipped no later than 2017, but we weren't able to fulfill that promise. Every order made will be filled or refunded, based on each customer's preference. They are currently our top priority.
Q: Where can I get digital wallpapers of the art?
A: Sign up on Patreon! When you join at the Acolyte level ($2.50), you'll have access to all of the wallpapers I've created, as well as the benefit of seeing new artwork a month before it's released to the public, and a 10% off code. Click here to become a member.
