As Anouk said very Magical. Can't really say what part is my favorite but this I would like to take with me wherever I go.... such a source of inspiration. I can hear the croaking of frogs, the rustling leaves and all those fireflies zoom around my head.... the stuff dreams are made off.

No, Chun you are the man! when are you going to submit your work to the gallery?

Guest's picture

Thanks Samuel and Patrick. Lovecraft was such a great writer. After imersing myself in his work for the last couple of months, I tried to test the limits of my ability. Hopefully my depictions of his imagination are not an injustice to his work.

As everyone has said, this is spectacular. You are improving every time out, it seems. I am inspired to re-read this story (again!) with your picture fresh in my mind.

"The Doom that came to Sarnath" its among the "better than angry sex" things in my list, your AMAZING work adds an extra charm to the tale. Rock!
