Autumn Cthulhu Promotional Poster by greyorm Autumn Cthulhu Promotional Poster by greyorm
Promotional art I did for the "Autumn Cthulhu" anthology, by Lovecraft eZine Press, whose Kickstarter is on its final day. Backers can get an amazing KS-only cover by the incredible Dave Felton, which you can see here: kck.st/1XH0A0y

The anthology includes stories by many of today's greatest names in weird fiction, with stretch goals having added a few other names not listed on this poster.

This piece was originally being developed for the cover, but the editor decided to go in a different direction and we reworked this into promotional poster. That required stretching the original image downwards and adding significant addition to and re-texturing of the lower half specifically for showcasing author names. We also went through a couple of font styles for the title before settling on the above, including one that had a sharp, dagger-like aesthetic.

The Shoggoth-y creature on the left-hand side was a late addition to the piece to add a bit more obvious weird to it, but there are a number of subtle, creepy details involved in the tree's visual construction.

I'm exceptionally happy with how this one turned out.
