Many of you probably aren't aware of this, but I'm a huge fan of H. P. Lovecraft's horror stories. His "Cthulhu Mythos" (not his term) is wonderfully alien, and Lovecraft has managed to create a ghastly world apart from our own without relying on traditional or cliched means. For fans of the macabre genre, Silicon Knight's excellent Eternal Darkness is a gaming homage to Lovecraft's work. The ill-fated Call of Cthulhu, while hard to find, manages to remain true to the source material (although creature designs are fairly standard). The fantastic comic "Hellboy" also aludes to Lovecraft's stories at every turn.
But enough about that. I've been putting this off for awhile, but I think I might start a new art project, focusing on the various beasts and horrors of Lovecraft's black universe. I'll start big--with Cthulhu himself. So you might not see too many of my dinosaurs in the next few weeks. But that's okay, because hopefully my Lovecraftian beasties will haunt your nightmares instead!
