The Elder Sign by FatherStone The Elder Sign by FatherStone
Unearthly creatures trying to break the Elder Sign. Will the world continue to exist after the overwhelming darkness will be fallen?

This work has been used as a graphic element in the title-page of "Lovecraft Black & White", [link] an art-book containing several works by various international artists. The book is published by "Dagon Press".

It took more than I expected. :)

Ink on paper.

Love the idea of creating the sign by leaving out parts of the shoggoth. Awesome shoggoth, I should add.

I would love a depiction of angled space and the masses within (i.e. "the Dreams in the Witch House") Also, a depiction of Sarnath falling to the inhabitants of the once great Ib. Please allow me the honor of being the first to enjoy, I would be forever in your debt.

Se ti venisse voglia di leggere qualcosa ti consiglio l'ottima edizione in 4 volumi della Mondadori, a cura di Giuseppe Lippi. Credo sia uscito in epoca relativamente recente anche un singolo volume che contiene una selezione di racconti, sempre a cura di Lippi, a un prezzo piuttosto buono.

Ciao!

Excellent! I love the use of the Lovecraft Elder sign, most prefer the Derleth version but the original Lovecraft sign is much more authentic looking and alien feeling.

Very cool!
