Gallery: Mike Bukowski Visualizes H.P. Lovecraft's Creatures


Of all the classic horror writers out there, perhaps none created as many memorable monsters as H.P. Lovecraft. His vividly described creatures were, in fact, the focus of a fascinating New Yorker profile on Guillermo del Toro — the Mexican filmmaker who has been known to craft his share of chilling baddies. But, now that Del Toro’s adaptation of Lovecraft’s At the Mountains of Madness has been nixed, another artist has stepped in to visualize the author’s creepiest monsters. Check out some of our favorite Mike Bukowski drawings after the jump, then click over to his blog to see many more.
