"The Old Ones were, the Old Ones are, and the Old Ones shall be." - "The Dunwich Horror"

Seemed like a fitting quote from H.P. Lovecraft. More advanced perspective homework. There technically is an easter egg here, but its not really hidden; H.P. Lovecraft is in the picture. Tried to do something more speedy than normal this time, hope you like it.

Yup

But which one is he? Is he among the frightened masses fleeing away from the action, or is he the well-dressed gentleman to the right, holding himself with confidence and quiet contemplation in the face of cosmic horror, pen in hand, ready to document this ungodly event?

Welp,  we're doomed.

No we're not. Cthulhu's father is there, and he's gonna give him a stern talking to.

(I'm talking about Lovecraft, by the way)

Everyone is running in terror except for one old Italian guy.

Old Italian guy?  You mean HP Lovecraft?

Ha, no.  I meant some stereotype from New York who is so jaded that this sort of event doesn't bother him.  He's not in the picture, he's a slightly balding, fat guy in a wife beater standing off to the side.

I think Lovecraft would have thrown himself into the ocean if he discovered one day that he was Italian, given his awful 1920's racism.

Very nice! I like your Cthulhu, the fact that he's mostly silhouette. Keeps him mysterious. Nice touch adding in HP as well.
