Back in December 2015, I randomly saw a post on Facebook about the “Black Zodiac”, the occult book shown on the movie Thirteen Ghost, I thought the illustrations were really cool so I obviously wanted a prop of my own but turns out these particular pages are basically impossible to find in a respectable resolution for print (at least back in 2015). Thus (also obviously), I decided to make my own super hi res versions and learn a bit of illustrator in the process since there´s quite a bit of gears and mechanical parts on some of the pages. I think the result was pretty decent, I even created a font file to fill in all the text (which is giberish right now but who cares…). I also replicated the paper texture that was rather unique or at least it looked interesting on the images on the internet. In any case, here are some of the pages I replicated, you can as always download everything for free and hi-res on the new download section for this book! Cheers! Here are a couple of example pages: Download all pages over HERE
Here are some of the pages I invented to add to my Journal 3 replica. You can download them all on the downloads page! You can download them all on the Gravity Falls download page!
So, when I started this project one of the main objectives was to re-create hi-resolution version of all the pages to share with the internet since I wasn’t able to find any while creating my replica and I bet theres a couple crazy people out there that also want to make their own journals. Once I finished all the canon pages I realized there were many awesome creatures and artifacts that never show up on the book within the show so I re-watched the series another 4 times and created new pages for every episode that was missing in the book. Here I leave you a ZIP file on my download section where you can download them all. There are landscape pages Folio size in 300dpi. Download here! Download here! As always It´s all for free, use them as you like, if you put a link back to this page, that´d be really nice, if not, its ok too. Enjoy! And I will tell everyone yet again, if you have not watched this series, please do, it’s amazing.

To start with, I searched a couple hours around the internet to see if there was some pdf or something like that with the pages of the book from the movie but I couldn’t find it. There is probably some good scan or something but since I quite like drawing and needed some extra practice I just downloaded the movie and very patiently paused all over the film and took screenshots wherever the book is shown open so trace the drawings. Some looked ok and were easy to copy… Some not so much, there were too much closeups… Obviamente tuve que inventarme todas las partes de las ilustraciones que estaban fuera del la escena como la cabra aquí: Or burny zombie over here:x Did the same for all the pages with ilustrations (all done in photoshop): (You can download the page over HERE) (And the fonts over HERE)
