Cthulhu Thursday: Inside the Mind of an Artist

September 8, 2011

While travelling the web researching for The Wasted Land, I came across this great article on io9.com about Lovecraft and art:

[Artist Harry.o Morris]’ approaches Lovecraft through ambiguity: “For me, the best way to express this uncomfortable aura visually is to leave portions of the picture undefined, in shadow, and influenced by chance/chaos. Also, I’m inclined to try and convey a sense of timeless antiquity which seems to be a cornerstone of Lovecraft’s vision.”

As well as this image from the biology class dissection I missed (I only did a frog):

And this article too on these illustrations for H.P. Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness from Weird Tales:

(Cthulhu Thursday is a dose of Mythos to brighten darken your week. More on the idea can be found here and a list of posts thus far, here. Also for more Cthulhu news, sign up to the cthulhuHQ twitter feed. Enjoy!)
