Yep, if there was one man who could've truly captured Lovecraft's "non-euclidean cityscapes" it was Dr.Suess.

I always thought R'lyeh would look good drawn as if by Geisel.

Just a great fan omage to Sueess and lovercraft and you match the style of art and writing brilliantly.

The scary thing is, it looks exactly like something out of a Seuss book. Which may mean that Dr. Seuss was already channeling dark-forces-that-man-was-not-meant-to-comprehend through his books. SAN = 0.

Haha you're so right! This is extremely Seussian. Reminds me of "Oh, the Places You'll Go!"
Loving your interpretation of the story. Can't wait to see this get printed :-)

Neat Seussian take on R'lyeh! Despite the cartoony approach, this may be the most authentically disturbing take on the drowned city I've seen yet!

Really cool! I really do enjoy the unconventional depiction of R'lyeh, I always assumed it would be pointy and whatnot, but this is really great.

Wait, so how do you pronounce "R'lyeh"? I've always pronounced it "Ruh-LAY".
Low-Roads's avatar
Yeah... Lovecraft pronunciations always seem rather up in the air. I've always thought of it as "RILL-yah"... but then, I always pronounce "Cthulhu" as though the "C" was silent.

This combinations is so logical. Why has no one thought of this before?

Oddly enough, Darwyn Cooke had a similar idea. In his DC: The New Frontier graphic novel, a children's author clearly meant to be Seuss was one of the sensitives who went mad when writing about the Cthuloid creature in the book. It's worth reading.

And to Dr. Faustus: This is astonishing work. Bravo, sir!
Beautifully written. Also, may be the most accurate depiction of R'lyeh on deviantART. That is some seriously non-Euclidean geometry! And yet it fits Dr. Seuss' style so perfectly-- which can only mean Geisel was one of the "sensitive" that the Great Old Ones spoke to and "moulded his dreams".
