These two cards are an attempt to make some nouveau themed alters with original art not based straightly on existing Alphonse Mucha's paintings.
 The first one is a Jhoira of the Ghitu:

The other one is a second try on a Jace I've done before, here it is:

  Two cards I have made, inspired by classic horror literature, both in total black and white.

  The first is a Dark Ritual, created for an altered art contest, with some Cthulhu fan art.Some of the details are not even from H.P. Lovecraft's work: the book (De Vermis Mysteriis) is from Robert Bloch's Cthulhu mythos works (who also wrote Psycho) and the flavor text is  actually from a Cthulhu related internet meme!

Also this is the testing sketch for the card.

The next on is fan art based on Edgar Allan Poe's classic, the Black Cat. I like the fact that the flavor text coincidentally (?) matches Poe's story.

 This is the sketch I made on paper before I paint the card.
