Drawing H.P. Lovecraft One Monster at a Time

Yesterday was the birthday of horror legend — and kind of awful human — H. P. Lovecraft, so it seems like a good time to link to artist Michael Bukowski’s ambitious Yog-Blogsoth project:

This blog will be an attempt to draw all the creatures Lovecraft ever wrote about or mentioned. In some cases his descriptions are very detailed and precise and in other cases he simply names creatures but all require a level of interpretation and imagination.

Bukowski started the drawings back in 2010 and four years later he is still going. Each illustration includes relevant quotes and descriptions from Lovecraft’s writings. Check out all the illustrations at Yog-Blogsoth and Bukowski’s Etsy store StoreDesGhoules.
