N'KAA

N'KAA
"A moment after the last skull was broken, the corpse of Vorstos collapsed into a pile of dust, as the soul-forces that had preserved it even after his death now departed. Now, eight flame-eyed, filmy wraiths hovered over the shards of their black-painted prisons. These were the n'kaa, the enslaved souls, freed at last from their loathsome servitude."
Charles R. Saunders, Imaro II

EYELESS LIZARD

EYELESS LIZARD
"A long sword was belted to his side and across his shoulders he carried a pale, squamous creature that more than anything else resembled a gigantic eyeless lizard."
Charles R. Saunders, Drum Magic

OTIBIS

OTIBIS
"Their mtekwas eyed the swift-moving, two-legged mounts of the Naaman cavalry. The Reptiles were dark-brown in hue, with lighter-colored horizontal stripes that stretched from head to tail. Their long jaws were filled with needle-sharp teeth, and hooked talons sprouted from forelimbs that ended in curved paws. They held their long tails stiffly behind them when they rain. The Naglopa called the beasts otibis."
Charles R. Saunders, Imaro IV

WALKINGDEAD

WALKINGDEAD
"They should have been food for the sharks, these waterlogged husks that had once been men and women. But their bodies betrayed no sign of attention from the scavengers of the deep. The only alteration, other than decay, that the corpses showed was the tips of their fingers. There, the flesh had been torn - or bitten -away, leaving only bare, claw-like bone, capable of ripping into skin...or clinging to wood."
Charles R. Saunders, Imaro III

IMBONA

IMBONA
"The most common grass-easter was a swift-running reptile slightly larger than an ostrich. Save for its long, tapering tail and a pair of forelegs that dangled above the ground, the long-legged creatures closely resembled the huge, flightless birds that raced across other parts of Nyumbani. Imbona was the Naglopa name for the runners."
Charles R. Saunders, Imaro IV

NEWS...

 Hey everyone! I know it's been a while since I posted any news but I've been busy working on a bunch of stuff. First off, starting April 5th I'll be posting SIX weeks worth of brand new monsters! 

The first four weeks will be brand new monsters inspired by my favorite author Charles R. Saunders. At the end of those two weeks my next Charles Saunders-inspired zine, Nyumbani Compendium II, will be available!

After that we have a weeks worth of brand new sea monsters inspired by medieval & renaissance maps! I'll eventually be doing a follow up to my Mappaemundi Compendium but not right away. 

Then to close out, we have something a little different. I'll have a week's worth of demons inspired by medieval & renaissance paintings, including Buonarroti, Pacher, Belmonte, Bouts & Mandijn!

And just a reminder there are still a few copies of Nyumbani Compendium I, Lost Colony Compendium I & Earthsea Compendium I in my store.

NEWS!!!

After waiting until the new year to send out zines I'm glad to report that they're starting to arrive to everyone who ordered them! And, surprise!, there was a bonus zine sent out to everyone that bought all four! 

In other news, I very excited that I finished the cover for Matthew Bartlett's novel Obsecration that will be published with Broken Eye Books this year. And the cover reveal will be February 1st!

I'm currently working on a brand new batch of monsters that I'm really excited about. It'll probably be a while until I post them but expect 2 months worth of Charles Saunders creatures in the first half of this year. 

I also have at least 3 new zines printed and ready for sale within the next few months. Expect more details soon.

That's all for now.

NIGHT-GAUNT

NIGHT-GAUNT

"Out of what crypt they crawl, I cannot tell, But every night I see the rubbery things, Black, horned, and slender, with membraneous wings, And tails that bear the bifid barb of hell."
H.P. Lovecraft, The Fungi From Yuggoth


"But Carter preferred to look at them than at his captors, which were indeed shocking and uncouth black things with smooth, oily, whale-like surfaces, unpleasant horns that curved inward toward each other, bat wings whose beating made no sound, ugly prehensile paws, and barbed tails that lashed needlessly and disquietingly. And worst of all, they never spoke or laughed, and never smiled because they had no faces at all to smile with, but only a suggestive blankness where a face ought to be. All they ever did was clutch and fly and tickle; that was the way of night-gaunts."
H.P. Lovecraft, Dream-Quest Of Unknown Kadath

GUG

GUG

"It was a paw, fully two feet and a half across, and equipped with formidable talons. After it came another paw, and after that a great black-furred arm to which both of the paws were attached by short forearms. Then two pink eyes shone, and the head of the awakened gug sentry, large as a barrel, wabbled into view. The eyes jutted two inches from each side, shaded by bony protuberances overgrown with coarse hairs. But the head was chiefly terrible because of the mouth. That mouth had great yellow fangs and ran from the top to the bottom of the head, opening vertically instead of horizontally."
H.P. Lovecraft, Dream-Quest Of Unknown Kadath

GHAST

GHAST

"...the ghasts, those repulsive beings which die in the light, and which live in the vaults of Zin and leap on long hind legs like kangaroos."

"After a moment something about the size of a small horse hopped out into the grey twilight, and Carter turned sick at the aspect of that scabrous and unwholesome beast, whose face is so curiously human despite the absence of a nose, a forehead, 
and other important particulars."
H.P. Lovecraft, The Dream-Quest Of Unknown Kadath
