Homage to Lovecraft by Valzonline Homage to Lovecraft by Valzonline
I always wanted to do an homage to H.P. Lovecraft, the Grand Master of all horrors. I keep reading all his books over and over again, and everytime is like the first time, I surprised myself with all the amazing creatures, great landscapes and disturbing cosmic scenarios... a truly Master.
My favorites stories?: 'The Dunwich Horror' and 'At The Mountains of Madness'

Hope you like it.

Reminds me of that painting "The Hands Resist Him" but yours is way more artfully done.

Lovecraft. . . opened the way for me, as he had done for others before me.... it is his shadow, so long and gaunt, and his eyes, so dark and puritanical, which overlie almost all of the important horror fiction that has come since.”

 - Stephen King

Great work man! Definitely nailed the HPL feel.
Yeah AtMoM is one of his greats, lets just hope Del Toro can finally get the movie adaptation done.

Hi. I run a magazine called Surreal Grotesque and for October we are doing a tribute to Lovecraft issue. I love your art and I was wondering if you would let us use some of your pictures for that issue. All credit would remain with you and I could run a small bio. You can see the magazine here: www.surrealgrotesque.com. We are legit and also have a book on Amazon called: Aliens, Sex and Sociopaths. Unfortunately I can’t pay for art right now, all I can offer is exposure, we do have over 1000 fans on Facebook. Thank you for your time. Let me know what you think or email me at Surrealgrotesque77@hotmail.com.

He has a nice, rugged jaw and a stern gaze. Not the type one would want to mess with.

One of the best Lovecraft portraits I've ever seen. He was indeed a pioneer of modern horror. My own favorites include "The Call of Cthulu" and "The Dunwich Horror" and "The Shadow Over Innsmouth."

I am still amazed how many people have not read or even heard of Lovecraft. I once was disscussing him with this blonde I met at a friend's party and she thought I was talking about a porno film.

I agree with you in that!, H.P. Lovecraft stories are awesome!! but I read his biography quite tragic like Hemingway.. really sad.. Another one that I like, a favorite I should say is Dante's Divine Comedy.. O__<
