My Bio
Welcome to my deviantart gallery, here you'll find my collection of Lovecraft inspired art and a lovecraftian comic of mine; "Dark Water"

I've been a fan of H.P Lovecraft for a long time. His bleak, horrific vision affected me from the first tale of his I read; The Music of Erich Zann.

Since then, his influence on my own creativity has been profound. Manifesting itself in paintings, drawings, stories, games and comics.

You could say I'm a Cthulhu freak.

So what exactly is a Cthulhu anyway, you might be wondering..

Cthulhu (Kuh-Thool-hu) is the creation of Howard Phillips Lovecraft, one of the most influential horror writers of the 20th century and the progenitor of the genre known as "cosmic horror".

Recurring themes in Lovecrafts work include the realization of terrible forbidden knowledge, genetic degeneracy, madness, alien creatures living among us (Cthulhu being one of these) and the insignifigance of mans existance in the cosmos.

As far as being an artist goes, it's in my blood.. always has been. I've always drawn and always been drawn to the weird and unusual.

My pursuit of art as a profession has brought me to Nova Scotia where I work for an animation studio designing kids shows... speaking of cosmic horror..

Have a look through my gallery, I hope you'll find something of what makes Lovecrafts work so wonderful, scary and weird.

Thank you to everyone who followed the story as it was being completed. The book is now in print and available though my blog, Dark Water. Printed copies made their premiere at Hal-Con 2012 and it was a great success. Accordingly, I've decided to reduce the Deviant Art gallery down to a preview of the book,  I hope you will find it intriguing enough to purchase a copy. Cheers and thanks to all my readers. Books are available here: http://darkwatercomic.blogspot.ca/ Dawn-of-Cthulhu (Casey Golding)

Welcome to my Deviant Art page, I'll be using this to showcase DARK WATER; a comic I've been toiling away at. It's a Lovecraftian tale about a young man who returns to his hometown, a coastal New England village to find it's no longer there. I've been having a lot of fun putting this together. When it's complete I hope to make a printed run of the comic for other fans of H.P Lovecraft to enjoy. dawn-of-cthulhu   (Casey)
