H. P. Lovecraft podcast

This weekend I joined Matt, Dave and Jason of the Bookhouse Boys podcast on their special Halloween episode for a discussion of H. P. Lovecraft's At the Mountains of Madness, other Lovecraft (and Lovecraft inspired) works and horror in general. We had a great time! Please download the podcast and hear what we had to say (but if you haven't read much Lovecraft, be aware that there are "spoilers" in the episode):


The picture you see above is a drawing I did several years ago for a Lovecraft edition of Graphic Classics. It was inspired by a trip to Angkor in Cambodia. Many of the ruins there are covered in dense, beautiful relief sculpture and since that sort of thing plays a role in some of HPL's stories, I decided to work elements of the Cthulhu Mythos into a relief. I don't think I've ever had more fun working on a drawing!

  1. I would love to go to Angkor Wat! Every time I see a photo of it, I feel so drawn to it.

    I love the cthulhu relief. It seems like it's about to come off the wall.

  2. Thanks you, Jennifer. I'd love to do a painting of that relief one of these days (or better yet, sculpt it).

    Visiting Angkor was one of the best things I've ever done. It was an unforgettable experience. i hope you get to do it someday.
