Artwork Description

From a series of works based upon writings by HP Lovecraft.
Part of the fascination with the worlds Lovecraft invented is in the descriptions of the realms outside of the Reality we are familiar with. The intersection of dimensions and the changes that occur to the physical parts of those environments is especially fascinating. With that in mind, I wanted to present a scene in which the arrangement is plausible but the reality is off. In earlier versions of this image the distortions were too subtle and so I decided to really push them. The result is a more dynamic image where even as the physical objects have been changed as a result of the train wreck, the perspective is actively warping to indicate the presence of an intersection. I'd hoped to create a sense of motion to illustrate the shift that must occur when Realities collide.

Seeing a bigger version would help.
Reading the idea behind the composition would do more to help you get the image I imagine but many people don't like to read anything about the work.

This is not exactly the kind of true illustration or comic type work that you find on sites like this so it's okay if you are confused. It is not intended to be pure eye candy.

You certainly don't have to like it, I don't mind at all. I get it, and I like it and if you wanted to know the whole deal behind it I can tell you but if not that is cool too.

Thanks for stopping by to view it!

I don't get the picture. Nice drawing but I can't make out anything except maybe the platform. I see 3 pieces of mass which I can't make out, they look bloody. The bottom right just looks scribbly except a head and a hand in what appears a small window and makes no sense. Sorry I don't like it!

Hey thanks. I have a few more in this series sitting on the back burner.

I appreciate the feeback and definitely, check out HPL's writings! "The Dream-Quest of the Unknown Kadath" is a great one, and of course "Pickman's Model"!

I really really love your work! I've never read HP Lovecraft, I'm ashamed to admit... but I'm going to the library tonight so find some books! All of your art based on his writings is absolutely amazing! Keep it up!

Very effective, and very creepy!

Art at its best.
