H.P. Lovecraft called again to tell you that you've put too much fertilizer in his garden again.

I know you are just joking around but I have to get this off my chest

Just for the record I've NEVER read Lovecraft, and honestly have no great desire to. His work is based on fear. I LIKE squids, jelly fish, octopuses, I have always enjoyed their shapes and designs. My work is always coming from a place of respect for nature, never fear.

I've read a fair share, and he indeed paints anything biologically inhuman as disturbing. His characters are even horrified - sometimes to the point of insanity - by the very existence of alien beings with alien physiology, even when the same story establishes those aliens as benign! I made fun of it here bogleech.com/comics/lovecraft....

Thanks for the link I LMFAO, it's very true. I never had a fear of anything growing up, even my Dad who beat the living tar out of my whole family. All animals, insects were fascinating to me from an extremely young age. My monsters have a special ingredient, they are made with love. I tried to reveal my sincere love of nature through every line that I drew.

That's my relationship with nature to a T. For as long as I can remember, if it's alive, I'm awed by it. I have a special fondness for arthropods, marine life and parasites, but there isn't anything I don't find fascinating in some way. Always wanted to teach biology, but I lean more towards art and that's been working out better than expected for me.

People might think I go for "disgusting" with a lot of my drawings, but while I do have fun coming up with things that might disturb some people, I ultimately want them to come across as cool and fun. I usually slip some personality trait into them to try and get across that they're not "bad," just different!

I wasn't allowed to study Biology either because I was obviously "an artist". Why you can't pursue both subjects in school just shows the limitations of our culture. So I just studied in my own time.

Totally agree with you. We are coming from the same place :)

Forgive me if I struck a nerve.

You're not actually missing too much by not reading Lovecraft. While I admire his pathological attention to description, it makes most of his stories almost entirely unreadable, especially like in "The Dunwich Horror." There, I got so bogged down in his description of Wilbur that I didn't even notice he had a brother and a mother until I reread it twenty years later.
That, and yes, yes his works are based on fear: he had crippling thalassophobia due to a very terrible allergy to seafood. More the pity, I suppose.

No, no nerve stuck. I just needed to get some distance from my work and Mr.LC.

He was also terribly allergic to dairy, but, he never wrote about that, other than to use his symptoms he developed whenever eating ice cream to describe his Deep-Ones.
