Sketches 11

I know it's been an unusually long time since I posted, but it hasn't been for lack of trying. I've been swamped (in a good way) with freelance work, I've been traveling (as mentioned in the previous post) and I've been working on zines. But I've also been working on monster drawings. 

So, my tentative schedule, is to post a bunch of sketches from now until the beginning of March, then post 3 weeks worth of monsters, then post the reprint of Volume III and then finally post the first print of Volume IV! It's gonna be a busy month. 

This first sketch is of one of my favorite Lovecraftian creatures, the Yakubian. This is my second go at this guy and the sketch is about the size of a dime which is why it looks so weird and small, but I really like this version better than the first.

This Invisible Monster sketch isn't so invisible but the basic anatomy is the same from start to finish. And by the same I mean weird.

So, stay tuned tomorrow for some more before and afters!

  1. I quite like these, particularly the Yakubian. They beautifully illustrate the cross between horror and science fiction that Lovecraft bridged so adeptly.
