This nicely done primitive Cthulhu idol comes to us from Jaseriand.

Every doll is special, but it's obvious these are particularly well loved. This gruesome little duo comes to us from the Monster Sandbox. When I saw them the first thing that popped into my head was the song from Robert Munsch's infamous "Love You Forever" children's book.
“I’ll love you forever,
I’ll like you for always,
as long as I’m living
my baby you’ll be.”

Jason McKittrick, one of the most prolific Mythos artists around, was recently diagnosed with Bell's Palsy. I hope you'll join me in wishing him a complete and rapid recovery. His work has been featured here for years, and I hope that continues for many years to come.
Friday I was diagnosed with Bell's Palsy. Basically what this means is that due to inflammation of the facial nerves, the left side of my face is paralyzed. This is a full smile. Eating and drinking are a challenge now plus my speech has been affected quite a bit. The biggest difficulty is my eyesight though. Because of not being able to blink correctly my eyes dry out quickly so I constantly have to use eye drops. Not a very good situation for an artist. Because Bell's Palsy isn't fully understood recovery times differ with each person and full recovery isn't guaranteed. Some folks recover in two weeks while others can take up to a year. I'm optimistic. I wasn't going to post about this because honestly it's embarrassing but I realized sharing my situation could be therapeutic. Not gonna lie, this has been very stressful for me but I'm staying positive. . . . . #bellspalsyA post shared by Jason McKittrick (@the_cryptocurium) on

"His age was perhaps thirty-five, but the odd, deep creases in the sides of his neck made him seem older when one did not study his dull, expressionless face. He had a narrow head, bulging, watery blue eyes that seemed never to wink, a flat nose, a receding forehead and chin, and singularly undeveloped ears. His long, thick lip and coarse-pored, greyish cheeks seemed almost beardless except for some sparse yellow hairs that straggled and curled in irregular patches; and in places the surface seemed queerly irregular, as if peeling from some cutaneous disease."
- H. P. Lovecraft, The Shadow over Innsmouth
If you're planning a trip to shadow-haunted Innsmouth it might be a good idea to contact James Krstulovich. His Deep One hybrid mask does a great job of recreating the infamous "Innsmouth look". It's a latex half-mask that uses the attached knit hat as a suspension.
