      Of course. this particular piece it´s based on an Arthur Machen story (the novel of the white powder) but since i was a teenager Lovecraft´s tales were a big influence and inspiration, Though i have my own thoughts about HP´s Style of writing and i don´t like Everything he wrote.

      yes, but there´s a common shape of Cthulhu (big round tentacle head; huge bat-like wings) and this figure ends up in the story being more like a melted, bubbling black pitch. Thank you for your comment!

      Here it goes: A portrait of a lovely old lady ( similar to Tweety´s owner) with a creepy one-eye cat on her arms. on the background we see a domestic, kitsch furniture with all kind of stuff inside and above it. the things in the furniture are litlle decorative statues and figures of Lovecraftian fashion; small Cthulhus and deformed animals. the paperwall it´s on decay and an atmosphere of ruin and malevolence must be present. I hope you like it.

    This reminds me so much of Gustav Dore's illustrations. Eerily beautiful, bizarre, and thought-provoking. The movements are seductive and lyrical.

      Thank you! in fact in those days i was seeing a lot of pen and ink work (this drawing it´s basically done with a sable-or liner-brush) from different artists such as Doré; Berni Wrightson and franklin booth. this kind of Black & White drawings are my favorite challenge as an artist. Your words are very kind and profound, and i aprecciate very much.

      I find it amazing that this is brush work, not pen work.

      Have you experience with scratchboards, engravings, etc.?

      Katherine: i´ve tried to ink with a pen (i used to ink a lot that way) but i work faster with this type of brushes and expendable rapidographs, like the ones used for technical designs. In my art school days i´ve tried engraving on wood, but it´s hard to do it in your home; you need all kind of expensive things and i was broke ( and i still broke). so i prefer ink on heavy paper, or even try digital inking. but in my heart there always will be a place for engraving and that kind of ancient printing techniques. thanks for this talking.

      I prefer to ink traditionally than digitally :) My favourite brushes for this type of work are my trusted W&N series 7.

      I think the same about digital inking, but sometimes i feel that i have to expand my techniques, for laboral reasons, and i was surprised about how accurate and instinctive can be work with a graphic tablet. to be honest, i´ve never tried Windsor& Newton, you can´t find it in my city. I use cheap and semi-cheap brushes, that work on the edge of what is acceptable, but sometimes i´m having a hard time trying to make them obey my hand.

      I order mine on Blick :) http://www.dickblick.com/ A few times a year they have half-off sales and that's when things get terribly exciting.
