The Whisperer in Darkness

The Whisperer in Darkness is now in editing! I loved the silent film version of Call of Cthulhu, and the first 'talky' filmed in beautiful Mythoscope is looking good.

Art & Animatronics

(EDIT: This video is no longer available, but the site link below is still accurate & well worth the visit!)

Absolutely mesmerising work from artist- Thomas Kuntz. Perhaps you've seen his work before. From beginnings 20 years ago as a figurative sculpture of old horror movie characters, he has moved on to animatronic devices and prop works in film & music video.

Once you've enjoyed the above piece, grab a coffee & enjoy his site... You'll be there for a while.

Artist Inspirations

While I generally have an insatiable appetite for all things Lovecraftian, artist Andrea Bonazzi serves a more than ample feast of mythos related talents here. I'm sure I've seen some pieces in the past, but had never found this site until now.

Clever montages like that above, well-wrought tablets & sculptures, and pipes that would tempt even a non-smoker to a bowl and brandy by the fire... All inspirational to any HPL fan!

The Innsmouth Girl

A work in progress & inspired by H.P. Lovecraft's mythos, this girl has haunted my thoughts for some time. The cult of Dagon calls this poor Innsmouth girl, and the transformation begins.

I seldom sketch concepts for sculptures (though I should), and this marks the first attempt in some time. As something of a side-project, I hope to begin the actual sculpture by Christmas.
