As you may have noticed, if you follow my blog, I read a wide variety of genres . . . but there’s a special place in my heart for horror.
I love how there’s so much you can do with horror, how it can encompass everything else, from science fiction to romance.
Anyway, I’ve been reading a little Lovecraft lately, and while he has many quotable phrases, this particular bit stuck with me enough that I felt I should illustrate it.
So I made this graphic.
I have seen beyond the bounds of infinity and drawn down daemons from the stars . . . I have harnessed the shadows that stride from world to world to sow death and madness . . .
The imagery conjures something vast, something terrifying, but in words that translate the concept of cosmic horror with a sense of beauty.
Or, it does for me.

And you can find more images like this that I’ve made in my Quotes section.
