This is a small drawing for “Puffed Shoggoths,” Trevor Henderson’s H.P. Lovecraft zine. “Call of Cthulhu” was the first Lovecraft story I read, and I worked on some “Shadow Over Innsmouth” drawings in my senior year at MICA. Despite all the cool monsters in his work, I was always more impressed by the crushing sense of galactic solitude Lovecraft infused his work with. The idea that Earth is the last bastion of sanity in the cosmos and that catching the slightest glimpse of the true workings of the universe is enough to drive a man insane, well, that’s pretty neat, huh?
