Its a great drawing with lots of colour and a big helping of imagination. But is anyone else a little freaked out by the passing resemblance to a Mi-Go from the Cthulhu Mythos? I may be stretching the resemblance a bit but that was the first thing I thought of when I pulled this picture out of the pile. It sent a palpable shiver down my spine. Maybe I'm reading too much H.P.Lovecraft at the moment...
Talking of which I recently read an article that suggests that James Cameron is set to collaborate on a movie version of At the Mountains of Madness. Apparently Guollermo del Toro is teaming up with the Aliens and Abyss director to make what will arguable be a very challenging film adaption. Whatever you think of their previous work (and I'm thinking of Titanic Mr Cameron...shudder) its good to see Lovecraft's work given such a high profile.

Now if Titanic had been overrun by Deep Ones and de Caprio had to fight them off with big firearms (did they have sentry guns in 1912? Ah, hell...) it wouldn't have sucked half as much.ReplyDelete
Hang on a minute...(scribble, scribble...)
Del Toro would probably be the perfect director for a Cthulhu movie; I hope there is truth in this, so long as it isn't all computer generated. I still like reality dammit!ReplyDelete
