    Horrors Of Literature!

    Hey all,

    I've read a lot of monster stories over the years, and I just recently started drawing my own interpretations of some of those creatures that I've read about.
    I really want I keep at this for a while and create a whole series of these.

    Hope you enjoy.

    Good stuff.
    I particulary love the first third.

    The Wendigo is awesome. The hands really tell the tale.

    Good call on Swine Thing ;p. When do we get Cthulu?

    He is in the works, with a number of others.
    There are many monsters that HPL has created that I am looking forward to drawing.

    Thanks for viewing!

    These are great! They capture the tales appropriately with a clean but eerie style. I cant wait to see more, especially Cthulu
