In HP Lovecraft's works, the Elder Sign was thought to protect individuals from the Elder Gods, a race of Extraterrestrial Monsters bent on the destruction of the universe. While only a handsign in his books, the Elder Sign through a student of Lovecraft's, August Derelith grew into the symbol of a penacle with a flaming eye in the center. In my version, I chose to showcase the Elder Sign as a living, organic form made up of flesh and bones. This was a study in texture based on the art of Wayne Barlowe, the famous fantasy illustrator.

A 2 inch by 2 inch Wadjet Eye (aka Eye of Horus, All-seeing Eye, etc.) tattoo on the back of my neck (hence the hair). I got it done at the same time as my wrists but couldn't get a good picture to post until now. I always loved Egypt and knew one day it would be apart of me forever. When I saw this symbol show up in the move Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, I knew that was it. I had an obsession with Egypt and video games and it was a beautiful marriage of both.

original design inspired by the movie Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, by :iconkubnet: seen here: [link]

Unearthly creatures trying to break the Elder Sign. Will the world continue to exist after the overwhelming darkness will be fallen?

This work has been used as a graphic element in the title-page of "Lovecraft Black & White", [link] an art-book containing several works by various international artists. The book is published by "Dagon Press".

It took more than I expected. :)

Ink on paper.

This is the version used by H.P Lovecraft and Chaosium. I first took two pieces of soapstone. I then carved the image in reverse and backed it onto the other stone.

Using lead free pewter in a cast iron bullet casting ladle, I brought the unholy metal to a liquid state and poured it into the mold.

After removing it, I bathed it in some chemicals to change its color and patina.

Cosmic Horror coverart
(c) Marijn bierhof

as I assume is obvious cosmic horror is based on the cthulhu mythos.

I was asked by marijn to do the cover for his project (its not really commercial.) and I was happy to as I was really behind on my honors to master cthulhu anyway ;)

also did some interior pieces (and still have some unfinished.) to be found on my DA as well.

I dreamed of signs, carved deep from stone, old magic...

Whether as protection from the Deep Ones, or a sign of devotion, everyone needs an Elder Sign!

Protection, devotion, or insanity: this eldritch Elder Thing will catch everyone's attention...
** Now available on Etsy! [link] **

Hand-carved in wax and cast, liver of sulfur patina, lots of love.

The Essence of Blood-


Behold I present you the blood essence. It is used to endow one with the property of sustenance. Study it close, for if you shall choose this path there will be no second chance. The Blood essence is used to increase ones vitality/durability of an object, person, creature, etc, increasing the amount it can withstand. Each mark of blood is handcrafted and enchanted with the blood ritual. He who bares this stain learns to tolerate pain. The sacrifice of blood is what keeps the gears of the hell machine turning as the flames never extinguish, we never sleep. 

In order to seek out this essence one will need to solve puzzles and bend destruction to your will. This world is as good as ours, it is only a matter of time before it is delivered into the hands of Dahminahe. it is the lands of ElaiKanai and Leptous that will be the first to fall into oblivion from which the Empire Saiipius ascended. Join us brother and sisters in our quest for glory and dominance as failure is never an option.

Sigil of Cthulhu featuring markings from the tablet of Rl'yeh and the elder sign around them symbolizing his imprisonment in R'lyeh 'till the stars are right =P I made up this one myself, feel free to modify and use. I'a Cthulhu fhtagn!

O Thou that lieth dead but ever dreameth,
Hear, Thy servant calleth Thee.
Hear me O mighty Cthulhu!
' Hear me Lord of Dreams !
In Thy tower at R'lyeh They have sealed ye,
but Dagon shall break Thy accursed bonds,
and Thy Kingdom shall rise once more.
The Deep Ones knoweth Thy secret Name,
The Hydra knoweth Thy lair;
Give forth Thy sign that I may know
Thy will upon the Earth.
When death dies, Thy time shall be,
and Thou shalt sleep no more;
Grant me the power to still the waves,
that I may hear Thy Call.

In His House at R'lyeh Dead Cthulhu waits dreaming, yet He shall rise and His kingdom shall cover the Earth.

Cthulhu mythos by H.P Lovecraft
