Over at Lovecraft eZine they’ve got a wonderful post featuring pics of Danish artist John Kenn Mortensen in which he basically channels artist Edward Gorey (the Gashlycrumb Tinies anyone?) illustrating Lovecraft.
I’m gonna repost these pics (to be fair i’m basically reprinting the post because time is not my friend today and shame and i have never been close.) They are very awesome i assure you.
The artist, John Kenn Mortensen has an awesome blog here, and his blurb is, and i quote: “BORN IN DENMARK 1978. I WRITE AND DIRECT TELEVISION SHOWS FOR KIDS. I HAVE A SET OF TWINS AND NOT MUCH TIME FOR ANYTHING. BUT WHEN I HAVE TIME I DRAW MONSTER DRAWINGS ON POST-IT NOTES… IT IS A LITTLE WINDOW INTO A DIFFERENT WORLD, MADE ON OFFICE SUPPLIES.”
To reiterate, most of these are all drawings drawn on post-it notes.
When it’s all said and done, the world is an awesome place.
You can buy John’s artwork in book form here.
