My Bio
A tall troll-like being from the treacherous mountains of British Columbia, it primarily feeds on loud music and pretty pictures with a strong nutritional requirement for frequent new material. It also sometimes produces primitive art-like structures of its own, leading some to speculate that it may possess near-human-level intelligence.

Dali, Escher, Bosch, and the entire Haida Nation; Aaron Diaz, Kate Beaton, Evan Dahm, Spike Trotman, Pete Abrams, and many others.

Have a seance, be the medium. When the ectoplasm starts oozing out of you, smear it all on a canvas and chant some colourful incantations. Whatever the result is, sell it for millions. You can't lose.

I'd let her zap me with her death ray any day.

I can hear its mournful cry echoing forth from the shadow-woods of the nightmare-realm.... "meow"...

This deserves all the praise. All of it.

I could never read much from any of the imitators simply because of how they oversimplified Lovecraft's ideas. The only other mythos author I enjoy is Clark Ashton Smith, all of the others just stray too far into Good vs. Evil territory and that's not what I look for in good cosmic horror. I always pictured Lovecraft's cosmos as being a huge thriving ecosystem in which our planet is just one localized microhabitat and our species is just a single ant colony forever pumping out new workers to be seized and devoured by the multitudinous predators which flock on by on their inscrutable journeys. You've captured that essence quite nicely.

Also those are the most adorable god-larvae ever portrayed by non-polypous beings.

Woah. That was super-short and super-potent. Most excellent.
