Cthulhu in digital oil

This is the first in a series of paintings I'll be doing in the Cthulhu world but in the style of an early 20th century oil painter (lots of influence from Grimshaw).

I'm imagining a coastal town in England where a Cthulhu cult emerged either prior to or in parallel with the Innsmouth story and set close to 1900. The artist goes there are chronicles the events in pictures.

The title makes it creepy as hell since there is no apparent sign of the great old one being around.

Just about to say... Where the hell is Cthulu!?

Or perhaps when.


Never know with them old ones.

Wonderful!!! Great work

Fantastic atmosphere, ripe with the foreboding of unspeakable things !

And your idea behind these paintings particularly resonates with me : indeed, ever since I discovered the village of Robin Hood's Bay, on the Yorkshire coast, at an impressionable age, I have associated its fishing history and its sloping roofs with 'The Shadow over Innsmouth'... I am glad I have found a kindred spirit and look forward to the rest of the series !

oh thanks. I'll have to check that place out. I moved to Seattle a few years ago but I'm due to move back home this year. I'm setting this story in Cornwall (ish). Lovecraft's stuff is set in the US so I wanted to bring it home :)
