Given that today is Arthur Machen’s birthday, I thought I’d throw this up on RedBubble and see what happens:

Just popped the two items I have in hand on eBay, if anyone’s looking for some inexpensive, obscure gifts for themselves or others:

“It is written on the brick cylinders of Kadatheron that the beings of Ib were as green in hue as the lake and the mists that rise above it…”

“It was languid curiosity which first brought Stephen Jones to Rogers’ Museum… and he had strolled in one April day to see how disappointing he would find it. Oddly, he was not disappointed…”

My mock Rogers’ Wax Museum tickets inspired by “The Horror in the Museum”

 

It is Written on the Brick Cylinders of Kadatheron…

“…It is written on the brick cylinders of Kadatheron that the beings of Ib were in hue as green as the lake and the mists that rise above it; that they had bulging eyes, pouting, flabby lips, and curious ears, and were without voice. It is also written that they descended one night from the moon in a mist; they and the vast, still lake and grey stone city Ib. However this may be, it is certain that they worshipped a sea-green stone idol chiselled in the likeness of Bokrug, the great water-lizard; before which they danced horribly when the moon was gibbous. And it is written in the papyrus of Ilarnek, that they one day discovered fire, and thereafter kindled flames on many ceremonial occasions. But not much is written of these beings, because they lived in very ancient times, and man is young, and knows little of the very ancient living things…”


 

Working on an HPL … replica paper ‘thing.’ Found some great inspiration online, at a certain museum. Here is the source of the above:

The Doom that Came to Sarnath, by H. P. Lovecraft, 1920.

Weird Tales 1932 Masthead Shirt

Posted in Design, Physical Object with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 23, 2016 by Staff Writer

Speaking of Two-Gun Bob, this is based on the logotype for Weird Tales, as seen on the December 1932 cover, the first published appearance of Robert E. Howard’s Conan the Barbarian:

Obviously, mine is stacked, to better fit the proportions of a shirt. “Weird Tales” is hand drawn, the tagline is typeset. WT is not just a compressed version of my earlier art. Every letter has been re-drawn by hand.

Available wherever finer fandom shirts are sold.
