Hannes Bok and H.P. Lovecraft



Ack. I mean, look at that thing. This is from FAMOUS FANTASTIC MYSTERIES December 1951. It's by Hannes Bok, depicting one of the ghouls from the H.P. Lovecraft story, "Pickman's Model." (The story and a dozen other Lovecraft tales is discussed over on my main site
http://community-2.webtv.net/drhermes/DRHERMESREVIEWSHome/ ). Bok's distinctive artwork usually features a few figures with minimum background and they seem distinctively solid, almost like photographs of small models he made. It's a neat effect.
