Hello Pulp Friends,

Today is the birthday of an author so dear to my heart (as you might know already): Howard Phillips Lovecraft.
To  celebrate, I have put together the above illo (based off my famous HP Lovecraft portrait) with a quote of the Man himself. Hope you enjoy it.

Cheers,
Francesco

Great work! Is there a chance to get this as a poster or art print? :)

Wonderful! I had the chance to visit Lovecraft's grave in Providence a few weeks ago...and there was a dragonfly perched on the tip of his family's obelisk. Howard would have approved. :)

Wow, thank you so much, Charles, Tome, James, bender, and Dave, I guess my love for Lovecraft's work shows even more when I draw it :)

Bender (and anyone else interested): absolutely! Nice archival/giclee prints are indeed available. Pls shoot me an email for details.

Dave: that's so cool! One day I wanna visit Providence too.

Cheers,
Francesco
