They Say It's Your Birthday

Today marks the 125th anniversary of H.P. Lovecraft's birth.  You'll undoubtedly see a lot of articles marking the occasion, but I think the biggest testament to his influence is that he's still inspiring people.  Close to eighty years after his death artists and writers are still building on his legacy.  Very few people can lay claim to that kind of influence.

To commemorate the Old Gent's birthday Cryptocurium is offering it's entire series of Lovecraftian plaques.  Jason McKittrick has justifiably become one of the premiere Mythos artists, and these pieces are a good example why.

Mike Jenkins celebrates the occasion with a very nice limited edition T-Shirt. You'll find it, along with his other cool designs, in the Ekliptic Zazzle shop.
