Sigil Generator

Generates a graphical sigil on a 3x3 cipher grid from a spell or phrase.1

In collaboration with Lucile Olympe Haute, Institute of Diagram Studies High Priestess for Cyber-Witchcraft.

Created to make this sigil, but it can use any phrase, spell, or affirmation:

bind billionaires who fly to the upper sky from coming back to earth

drawing of the sigil on a 3x3 grid

Installation

The Python scripts are written for Shoebot, follow instructions to install it.

(Shoebot is a rewrite of Nodebox 1 so the scripts might work in there and/or in Drawbot with some adjustments)

Usage

Sigil generator

full_sigil.py generates a diagram on a 3x3 Grid.

  1. Initial statement phrase e.g. "bind billionaires who fly to the upper sky from coming back to earth"

⬇️

  1. Strip the phrase of duplicate letters (see sigil_letters.py) e.g. "bindloareswhfytupkmcg"

The 3x3 letter grid

⬇️

Sigil line on top of the grid

Animation

To produce animations, use the plain_sigil.py script.

  1. Save the output as .svg like plain_sigil.svg
  2. Copy the <path> part like the one below and paste it to replace the similar one in index.html
<path style="fill:none;stroke-width:2;stroke-linecap:butt;stroke-linejoin:miter;stroke:rgb(0.784314%,8.235294%,70.196078%);stroke-opacity:1;stroke-miterlimit:10;" d="M 150 50 L 250 250 L 150 150 L 50 150 L 250 50 L 250 150 L 50 50 L 250 250 L 50 50 L 150 150 L 150 250 L 250 150 L 50 250 L 150 50 L 250 50 L 50 250 L 150 50 L 50 150 L 250 50 L 50 250 "/>
  1. Adjust the path length as indicated in the index.html file comments so the animation draws the whole line.
  2. Open index.html in a browser.
