“Discovered in a sphagnum bog in Northern Ireland clutched in the hand of a bog body, this idol is a true historical anachronism. Sharing no stylistic similarities with indigenous artifacts of the region and produced with craftsmanship techniques not available at the time this item seems to confirm the existence of an as of yet unknown advanced ancient civilization.

The idol is believed to depict the infamous Great Old One Cthulhu. If this belief is correct then the sacrificial victim may have been a member of an ancient Cthulhu cult dating back to the Iron Age. The depositing of the body with the idol into the bog may have been an attempt by superstitious cultists to appease Cthulhu for a perceived offense.

Analysis of the idol has yielded more questions than answers. A metallurgical study returned no matches of any known substance on earth however the item seems to possess attributes of both iron and copper and is completely resistant to rust or patina. Researchers have suggested the unknown alloy to be of possible celestial origins.

Study of the hieroglyphics engraved into the idol have yet to be deciphered as well. They are the first known example of this unique form of pictographic writing.

Currently housed in the Special Collections Department of Miskatonic University.

Donated by the late Professor William Dyer.”

Ready to be exposed at the Razor Reel Fantastic Film Festival (Bruges, Belgium), where H.P.Lovecraft is this year's main theme. Next to cult classics such as In The Mouth Of Madness and Re-Animator, they are offering us newer work such as The Last Lovecraft: Relic of Cthulhu and The Wisperer In The Darkness, in precence of director and Lovecraft expert Sean Branney. Pretty honoured they asked me to create a few "old-looking pages" and glad they were impressed when they got them.

Items found in the cellar of an abandoned farmhouse near Arkham, Massachusetts. The cellar also contained the remains of twenty four human beings, some of these cadavers were in a skeletal state and dressed in 17th century clothing while others appeared to be much more recent.
The disinterred corpses were assumed to be the work of a satanic cult, but as none of the remains could be identified the case was quickly closed by local authorities and the bodies reburied.

“A medium sized relief sculpture also found in the Elder Thing city. Dubbed by the expedition as the “War of Re-Subjugation”, this artifact depicts a period in Elder Thing history when the slave race of Shoggoths had evolved to a point of intelligence and self-awareness. The creatures refused to be obedient and Elder Thing society came to a halt. The Elder Things were forced to war with the Shoggoths by means of telepathy and esoteric technology resulting in Shoggoths being brought back under the Elder Thing’s sway. As later discoveries would prove however, this period would not last long.”


Each “War of Re-Subjugation” is hand cast in solid resin and comes mounted in a black velvet lined shadow box with a catalog tag from the Starkweather-Moore Expedition. Measures 8″ x 10″


AVAILABLE FOR ONE WEEK ONLY

Lovecraftian
:iconstonehome:

This is my tribute to one of the world's best writers!

Here is my interpretation as a poster of the horror
master HP Lovecraft. I feel really happy with this picture.
It went even better than what I expected.
Estimated time of this poster is approximately 12 hours.

I had some problems in the beginning how I would visualize this great master. But I decided pretty quickly that I wanted to do this picture very dark and crude, given that he is a horror novel's father.
I then decided me to visualize the image like an old photo taken around the early 1900's. But I also wanted to make it feel a little more like a painting and therefore decided to make the picture feel like it was painted with watercolor and ink. The results where really exciting.
After that I played around with creating my own texture and highlighted the picture went it to be even darker when I put the texture on. When this was done, I felt that I wanted to bring Lovecraft's works som more. I felt that it was not good enough with "The Old Ones" symbol only, and the book he's written in.
So I took a very appropriate quote from him self. Then did I put in as a typewriter. I know that he hated to write with a typewriter, so I felt maybe this font went even more appropriate given the text;)

Hope you enjoy the picture and if you're interested in learning more about my process, you can watch it on my blog below

www.jimmy-moberg-design.blogspot.com

And if you're keeping track, I will mention when the poster will come out to buy for all the Lovecraft fans out there;)

Watercolours and inks on watercolour paper

Yet another Lovecraft piece. I had the idea to paint a variation of this piece as a cover for 'Planet Lovecraft Magazine' when they were still in print. Then, when searching for ideas for my sketchbooks for the New York Comic Con this year, I decided to finally put the idea on paper.

It's not often I do humourous work when not creating art for Game-Flush.com, so it was fun to do something a little different. Also, if you're going to the New York Comic Con this weekend (October 13 - 16, 2011), don't forget to stop by Artist Alley table L8. Enjoy!

UPDATE (8.15.2012): This piece was recently featured on the cover of Innsmouth Free Press' e-book, Innsmouth Magazine: Collected Issues 5 - 7. If you're a lover of Lovecraft and weird, horror fiction, you can purchase a copy of the e-book for the Kindle: Click here to order on Amazon.com

This is my third horror movie poster after "Vampire Boobs" and "The Swamp terror"comes now the new film poster Hunted. This picture did I sketche out for a long time back but has been lying down and waiting a while for various reasons. But I decided now to finish it. Wanted to bring in an older sense of a old poster in the coloring. And I wonted it to seem like an old photo and I think that I have succeeded.
I still wanted to retain some colors and not dusturate the image too much because then I thought it lost to much of its charisma as I struggled to keep. However, I am not completely satisfied with the performance of this picture, but maybe I'm a little too self-critical, or so it was that I saw a completely different outcome in my head that I have not reached?
Which case it's an ok poster in which a young woman is attacked by the unknown monster that you see the camera angle of the mouth. It is like the viewer is the monster that eats up pinup girl.
Estimated time of this image from sketch to finished product, I would guess at took me about 10 hours.
I also give thanks to the "poison drop stock" for her (Old Photo Texture)
This helped me on my poster very much.
I hope this poster will do for you viewers out there;)

The Key of Cthulhu.

Sealed in a sunken crumbling temple in a primordial jungle bordering two warring, desperate lands, the Key of Cthulhu has been discovered and brought to the light of day. It's bronze skin is slick and weathered by the countless years of futile caressing by blind and feeble-minded worshipers. The dark alien stone of its pedestal bears the wear of millennia of dripping onyxian stalactites and the crawling of obscene, alien insects.

A lone surviving member of Joyner Studio's first expedition was found clutching this very same idol in his pale bloodless hands, blind and gibbering in an exotic dead language, "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn".

A new expedition has been commissioned by Joyner Studio to retrace the old teams fateful route into the primitive jungle and recover the remaining idols.

This week’s item is one we’ve been excited about for some time. We present to you the Mythos Ouija Board! Designed around the traditional spirit board from the Spiritualist movement, this piece has a markedly different purpose. Instead of contacting the dead our Mythos Ouija Board will put you in contact with the Old Ones!

More correctly known as “Mythos: Eye of Azathoth” this vector of communication bears the image of the Daemon Sultan surrounded by the alphabet and flanked by smaller images of Nyarlathotep and Cthulhu. Also included is a resin cast glow-in -the-dark planchette sculpted in the form of a Nightgaunt with a Lovecraftian Elder Sign above its head.

Each Mythos Ouija Board is a high quality screen printed image on heavy-duty cotton canvas. We tested this against the traditional cardboard mounted boards and found the canvas option to be much more durable and easier to store. The canvas is also completely resistant to scratching when moving the planchette over the surface.

Board measures 12″ x 15″
Nightgaunt Planchette measures 4.5″ x 3.5″

NOTE: Crypotcurium guarantees that domestic orders for this item will arrive in time for Halloween!

AVAILABLE FOR ONE WEEK ONLY!
$45 + shipping (U.S. Customers)
$ 55 + shipping (International Customers)

Priss- what a bombshell!!! Had to sneak this in for 90’s anime week.

This picture is 100% photoshop- something I never do, but after changing my tablet nib for the first time ever, I decided to try it out! This pic took about an hour, did it during my “lunch break”! (Meaning I had another coffee and scarfed down a croissant.) And you know, now that I’m thinking about it, didn’t Bubblegum Crisis spanned late 80’s early 90’s? Who even cares, I watched it in the 90’s, so I’m counting it!!!

It was either Bubblegum Crisis or Utena, but I just couldn’t figure out that wacky hair, or deal with those puffy-ass sleeves. And then that ridiculous ending theme song popped into my head and I decided it had to be Priss.

It was always Priss. <3
