FEEJEE MERMAID

FEEJEE MERMAID
"In 1882, a dried mermaid was exhibited at the Turf coffeehouse in London."

"All these were manufactured in the same way as the Feejee Mermaid: the upper body of a monkey had ben skillfully joined to the hind part of a large fish, usually a hake, salmon or carp."

“I have hated fish and feared the sea and everything connected with it since I was two years old.”

GARDINEL

GARDINEL
“They look some way like a shed or cabin, snug and rightly made, except the open door might could be a mouth, the two little windows could be eyes. Never you'll see one on the main roads or near towns; only back in the thicketty places, by high trails among tall ridges, and they show themselves there when it rains and storms and a lone farer hopes to come to a house to shelter him. ... The few that's lucky enough to have gone into a gardinel and win out again... tell that inside it's pinky-walled and dippy-floored, with on the floor all the skulls and bones of those who never did win-out; and from the floor and walls come spouting rivers of wet juice that stings. ... and all at once you know that inside a gardinel is like a stomach.”
Manly Wade Wellman, Why They’re Named That

CULVERIN

CULVERIN
"But, just ahead of him, the Culverin hoved itself half into sight on its many legs. It pointed its needle-shaped mouth and spit a pebble. I heard the pebble ring on Mr. Yandro's head."
Manly Wade Wellman, The Desrick On Yandro

KALU


KALU
"And then: 'Bones, yes - something like man-bones, but bigger and thicker, also something like bear-bones, or big ape-bones from a foreign land. And a rotten light to them. So I was for a moment that the bones weren't empty. Inside the ribs were caged puffy things, like guts and lungs and maybe a heart that skipped and wriggled. The skull had a snout like I can't say what, and in its eye-holes burned blue-green fire.'"

Manly Wade Wellman, Nine Yards Of Cloth

DJIBAW


DJIBAW
"All blotchy and green and brown with a white belly and a wet smoothness, it was a frog. But it was bigger than a man by twice, I suppose." “You think of him as what we call a djibaw, and evil spirit. We think of him as a part of nature, that defends nature's weak things.”
Manly Wade Wellman, Frogfather

BUNYIP


BUNYIP
"The Bunyip is said to be an amphibious animal, and is variously described: sometimes as a gigantic snake; sometimes as a species of rhinoceros, with a smooth pulpy skin and a head like that of a calf; sometimes as a huge pig, its body yellow, crossed with black stripes."


"He was of a brownish colour, with a head something the shape of a kangaroo, an enormous mouth, apparently furnished with a formidable set of teeth, long neck, covered with a shaggy mane which reached halfway down his back; his hind quarters were under water, so that we could not get a full view of him, but if one may judge by what was seen, his weight must be fully equal to that of a very large bullock."

"The moon was dim for a moment or two. Nobody spoke, we pressed up the ridge side, then a hoarse smothered ejaculation burst from Long Charlie's lips, and as he spoke the moon shone forth again, and he shifted his lantern so that its gleam fell athwart the white prostrate form and upon a snake, brown and shiny and scaly and horrible, which uncoiled itself, and with a swift, wavy motion disappeared into the depths of the scrub."
Rosa Praed, The Bunyip

NECRONOMICON 2017 WRAP-UP!

This year's NecronomiCon was, by far, the best yet. So many amazing speakers, talented artists and genuinely kind-hearted friends. 

I got to meet/hang out (and sometimes see read) with authors/editors Craig Gidney, Scott Nicolay, Anya Martin, Livia Llewellyn, Simon Strantzas, Justin Steele, Sam Cowan, Nnedi Okorafor, Peter Straub, Michael Wehunt, Matthew Bartlett, Peter Rawlik, Cody Goodfellow, Gemma Files, Nadia Bulkin, Scott R. Jones, Robert Levy, Jeffrey Thomas, Scott Gable, Mike Griffin, Paul Tremblay, Kij Johnson and the legendary Ellen Datlow.

Then there were the amazingly talented artists like Richard Stanley, Skinner, John Kenn Mortensen, Yves Tourigny, Nick Gucker, Liv Rainey-Smith, Karen Main (aka Dogzilla), Kyla, Sage & James Quigley, Josh Yelle, Dave Felton, Todd Chicoine, Brian Elig, and so many more.

(To give you an idea of the scale of this thing, I didnt even catch a passing glance of Stephen Graham Jones or John Jude Palencar. I love both their work and tried to see them!)

I want to thank my Seventh Church Ministries siblings Jeanne D'Angelo, Justine Jones, Stephen Wilson and Marcelo Gallegos (and occasionally Cameron Higby-Naquin) for making our table the coolest/loudest/most sprawling in the vendor room! I want to also thank Victoria Dalpe, Phil Gelatt and Roman for letting us stay in the their house and stink it up with farts with Jordan, Laura, Joe &. And lastly the friends/organizers Niels Hobbs, s.j. bagley, Farah Rose, Catherine Grant for tirelessly planning an impossibly amazing convention.


BUT, if you couldn't attend this fantastic gathering and you still want one of or all three of the zines I released then good news! I'll be putting them up for sale a week at a time starting next week. To make it easier, I'll be starting with a three pack.



You'll be able to grab, Volume 1 of Stories From the Borderland, Mappaemundi Compendium & Appalachian Compendium

SENTIENT CLONED WIENER

SENTIENT CLONED WEINER
“You didn't tell me you'd make a copy of my dick from a parallel universe!' I 
counter."

'”Well put me back!' yells the midsection. 'I can't even move like this, I've got no body! I'm just hips and a dick!”

“’Listen, it's too dangerous to send you back, I'm very sorry,' says Tomp. 'What I can do is build you a nice set of mechanical wings so you can fly around.'”

VOID WORM

VOID WORM
"The most common type of worm in The Void is about the size of a human arm, and resembles a tentacle that you would find connected to a large squid. These creatures appear so similar to the appendages of our ocean dwelling friends, in fact, that they are often referred to as tentacles 
themselves, although this is technically incorrect because they do not 
connect to a larger beast.” 

“Along the bottom of these worms are several rows of suction cups that are used for gripping, moving, and feeding on the souls of the suffering and disenfranchised.”
Chuck Tingle, Dr. Chuck Tingle’s Complete Guide To the Void

OTHERWORLDLY BEAST

OTHERWORLDLY BEAST
"Seconds later, I see a rather large beast emerging from the 
shadows. I stumble back in terror as I find myself face to face with a handsome, yet terrifying, velociraptor who sports a 
flower for a head."

“The massive beast steps forward, allowing an enormous, 
hardening cock to spring out from his scaly body. I can tell exactly what he wants me to do just from the look on his prehistoric flower face, and I’m happy to oblige.” 
Chuck Tingle, Stranger Pounds

VOID CRAB

VOID CRAB
“Void Crabs are similar in appearance to the lake crabs you might find on this layer of reality, although their shells are jet black and their claws are slightly larger. Along with these external differences, Void Crabs contain no internal organs to speak of, powered entirely by a thick, tarlike substance that fills their shell.”
Chuck Tingle, Dr. Chuck Tingle’s Complete Guide To the Void

TINGLEVERSE COMPENDIUM!


Hey everyone! Here's the info on the Illustro Obscurum Tingleverse Compendium! This zine will be based on the work of gay erotic author, two time Hugo Award Finalist and Tae Kwon Do grandmaster Dr. Chuck Tingle.

ILLUSTRO OBSCURUM TINGLEVERSE COMPENDIUM
AVAILABLE: AVAILABLE FRIDAY JULY 28TH 11AM EST
IN THE YOG-BLOGSOTH STORE
LIMITED TO 100 COPIES, $25 EACH

I've been posting some of the creatures (ranging from handsome to terrifying) here this week, but I haven't touched on the bonus material that will accompany the zine. We'll have a short fan-fiction story written by Brad Omen, a set of three Pokebutt cards illustrated by Caitlin McCormack and an illustrated Chuck Tingle shopping list (trust me it's hilarious) by Kati Driscoll.

This zine will be limited to 100 hand assembled & signed copies. This zine will also be a benefit for the Philadelphia-based Adolescent Initiative:

"The
Adolescent Initiative provides clinical care, research, and prevention services to adolescents at-risk for or living with HIV. The program helps bring HIV-positive and high-risk adolescents into an environment where they can feel comfortable receiving healthcare. One groundbreaking subset of the AI works inside the Philadelphia Juvenile Justice Services Center, providing sexuality education, advocacy, and support to LGBTQ youth in detention. The AI is completely grand funded."

For the covers, we used special paper from a lower level of the Tingleverse. This paper holds love better than all other materials and will exude good feels to all true buckaroos that hold it, so don't be surprised if the color fades over time.

HANDSOME UNICORN


HANDSOME UNICORN
“The unicorn colonel sits atop his powerful steed in full uniform, looking up at me as I gaze down at him. He’s just as handsome as the painting that hangs downstairs, and despite my best efforts I almost immediately find myself just as aroused as I am afraid."

“I can feel the colonel’s hoof hands press gently on the back of my head and hold me there, hesitating, as if he’s still not entirely sure that he wants to commit to this favor 
for a ghostly friend.”
Chuck Tingle, My Ass Is Haunted By the Gay Unicorn Colonel

GAY LIVING DONUT


GAY LIVING DONUT
“The next thing I know, a handsome, floating donut is approaching me from either side. The pastries are absolutely gorgeous, muscular and toned with massive dicks hanging down from their frosted, 
circular bodies." ”Two floating donuts approach me with their cocks in their tiny baked hands, beating off and looking down at my fit body as it lies contorted below them.”
Chuck Tingle, Glazed By the Gay Living Donuts

MAN WITH NO EYES AND WIENERS FOR HAIR

MAN WITH NO EYES AND WIENERS FOR HAIR*
“The Man With No Eyes And Wieners For Hair is a devil who can travel directly from the depths of The Void to any layer of The 
Tingleverse with almost no effort, making him one of the most 
terrifying creatures that any buckaroo could have the 
misfortune to encounter.”
Chuck Tingle, Dr. Chuck Tingle’s Complete Guide To the Void

*EDITORS NOTE: Because The Man With No Eyes And Wieners For Hair draws his power from others thinking about him, please do not look at the above image. If you happen to find yourself looking at the above image, at least refrain from thinking about The Man With No Eyes And Wieners For Hair.

SNAKE-BAT HYBRID

SNAKE-BAT HYBRID
“The government couldn't afford to pay the Queen's Guards 
anymore so we used these unfinished snake and bat hybrids that MI5 
has been developing.”

News...


I know it's been a slow year at Yog-blogsoth so far, but I promise things will pick up. One of the reason's things have been so slow is that I've been working on a few commission pieces. Here's one that I just got the go-ahead to reveal. It's the cover for a horror-fiction anthology titled Zombie Punks Fuck Off! Here's a quote from the publisher:

"
As you may know, I run a press called Weirdpunk Books. Well, we are hard at work on our next project, Zombie Punks Fuck Off, edited by the brilliant Sam Richard. Here's the cover by the rad Michael Bukowski. This won't be out until the fall, but you can preorder now at http://freaktension.storenvy.com/. And yes, you can use the discount code."


I've also been slowly getting ready for NecronomiCon 2017! That means printing business cards, stickers and getting new zines ready! I plan on debuting a bunch of new zines at this years 'Con including a mini-Illustro Obscurum based on the works of Manly Wade Wellman, a collection of the first series of Stories From the Borderland with Scott Nicolay and finally...after a lonnnng time Volume IX of Illustro Obscurum!

Check back in to get additional details like cover reveals and where my table will be at NecronomiCon.

SYMBIOTIC PSYCHIC BEETLE

SYMBIOTIC PSYCHIC BEETLE
"I clambered up quickly, to see the largest black beetle I had ever experienced staring placidly down at me from its perch inside the cherub's mouth."

"It was an awesome specimen, big as a field mouse, with a brace of bristling antennae which it waved menacingly at me. "

"'The bug is simply a large black beetle and nothing more!'"

"'You'd better shut up and leave me alone! All I have to do is tell him and h'ell tear your head off.'"

"'Don't bother with that. you won't see him. You can't even touch him. But he can get you.'  Edward chuckled."

"I did not hear Edward's report, for I, too had heard the sleigher, sliding thump down the staircase as if some giant six-legged bull were descending. 

"Whatever it was that Edward's mind had summoned to work his vengeance had disappeared the moment this brain had ceased to function."

"Quickly, I shone my light through the black hole of its neck, where I saw two stubby antennae, bristling and waving furiously at me. The bug was curled back into the recess of the head as far from me as possible."


"Quickly, I recovered my blow and began beating the black beetle madly."
Linda Thornton, The Inhabitant Of the Pond

Sorry for the silence this last month, but I've been super busy with commission work. I just finished the cover for Scott Nicolay's translation of J.-H. Rosny aîné's The Xipéhuz! 

https://lastchanceillustration.wordpress.com/book-covers/the-xipehuz/


I also just finished an overhaul of my illustration website. You can find more info on my cover for The Xipéhuz, as well as years worth of archives, at the new Last Chance Illustration site

I'm also excited to say that I only have a single H.P. Lovecraft creature remaining to complete my Illustro Obscurum project....and it's a biggie! Expect it soon, along with a few redrawings of older dudes. As to the future of this blog, don't worry. I'll continue to illustrate monsters and gods from other weird fiction authors once Lovecraft is finished.
