RESURRECTED HUMAN

RESURRECTED HUMAN
"There, where quaint old cottages climbed the hill from the rustic bridge, and fishing-smacks lay anchored at their sleepy docks, a vague report went round of things that were floating down the river and flashing into sight for a minute as they went over the falls. Of course the Pawtuxet is a long river which winds through many settled regions abounding in graveyards, and of course the spring rains had been very heavy; but the fisherfolk about the bridge did not like the wild way that one of the things stared as it shot down to the still water below, or the way that another half cried out although its condition had greatly departed from that of objects which normally cry out."

"What the thing was, he would never tell. It was like some of the carvings on the hellish altar, but it was alive. Nature had never made it in this form, for it was too palpably unfinished. The deficiencies were of the most surprising sort, and the abnormalities of proportion could not be described."
H.P. Lovecraft, The Case Of Charles Dexter Ward

  1. I think what I have come to enjoy about these illustrations is that if you were to collect them all side by side, not only could you obviously tie them wonderfully to their Lovecraftian inspiration... but they are all unified by a certain common style that is all yours. Your limited palette of color (which I love) is especially great.
