The Curious Case of the Commissioned Cthulhu, Solved

The lost Cthulhu illustration has been found, thanks to Joshua-Mozes. This amazing faux-pulp cover is the work of artist Martin Schlierkamp.

A very nice rendition of the staff piece, Propnomicon, “So once again Jones, what was briefly yours is now mine. “ I’m glad to see others running with the ball.

“You and I are very much alike. Archeology is our religion, yet we have both fallen from the pure faith. Our methods have not differed as much as you pretend. I am but a shadowy reflection of you. It would take only a nudge to make you like me. To push you out of the light.”

Now I want to read ANOTHER old pulp that never existed.

Uh-oh! That's me! Yes, I was pretty impressed by the organic beauty of this idol, I just had to grab it and run away from the temple, where Propnomicom was jealously hiding it.

Kidding aside, I am happy that Martin's painting finds your approval. It was a fun project and the result is now adorning one of the walls in my living room. And seriously, that idol rocks!
