Cthulhu Fhtagn! Leroux Edition.

This nicely done Cthulhu idol comes to us from artist Jacques Philippe Leroux.  I can't quite put my finger on why, but it strikes me as being Babylonian.

Matron of Innsmouth

Sweet fancy Moses.  It's been over ten years since I first published this retouched image of a woman suffering from the Innsmouth taint.

Now she's been brought to life, and it's amazingly creepy.  Click through to this post from author Steven Ross Craig to see her.  Sadly, I can't seem to get the video to successfully embed here. 

What a time to be alive.

Cthulhu Tablet

"Once we travelled to the Antarctic caves, we expected to find nothing but snow and ice. We explored deep and remote corners of the entire cave network to find a peculiar piece at each cave chamber. All of the tablets were broken into pieces, but once we connected the pieces, they seemed to attach to one another by themselves."

 Valara Atran returns to our pages with this glowing Cthulhu tablet, straight from Antarctica.

The Monster in Your Bed

Your bed is crawling with thousands of skin devouring monsters.  To most people household dust mites are just a distasteful fact of life, but a small percentage develop a serious allergy to the little beasts.  Such was the case with Jason Hite.  He channeled his issues into this giant recreation of the microscopic critters, cast in translucent resin.
