Here’s to you Mr. Lovecraft!

“Round pegs find round holes, square pegs find square holes. And by the same token, albeit with rather greater difficulty, I am sure that there must somewhere be a corresponding hole for such a peg as proverbial metaphor may dub trapezohedral!”

H.P. Lovecraft (In a letter applying for a job)

On this day in 1890, H.P. Lovecraft was born. Love him or hate him, his work has inspired generations of authors, artists, and dreamers.

“I never ask a man what his business is, for it never interests me. What I ask him about are his thoughts and dreams.”

Below are just a few of my own works based on his Mythos and firmly rooted in my thoughts and dreams.

Beware of Corpse-eaters in graveyards

Bestiary print pre-order

Note: purchasing of these prints is no longer a pre-order. Orders are currently shipping within 48 hours (excepting weekends and holidays).

In mid-September the original woodcuts from Arcanum Bestiarum will be officially debuting at the Esoteric Book Conference in Seattle. Although conference attendees will have the first opportunity to peruse the entirety of the bestiary prints including editions and artist proofs, we’re offering a pre-order on the two beasts already unveiled by Three Hands Press: the Raven and the Scorpion. More species will be made available for online ordering following the release of Arcanum Bestiarum

Lioness printer’s ornament

To thank you for your support, all pre-orders will include a signed open edition printer’s ornament. The ornaments measure 11 x 6.5″ (2 x 7″ block size) and are printed using the same ink and paper as the limited editions. Allow me to select one at random for you, or let me know your preference when ordering: Ant, Chimera, Dragon, Hawk, Lioness (seen above) Ram (may be seen here), or “Revels.”

Raven
Woodcut edition of 22


As with all of my prints, the Bestiary series were hand-carved in wood and printed on an etching press with archival oil based-black ink on hand-torn Rives BFK paper. I print with enough pressure to emboss the thick cotton rag paper and create as solid of a print as the wood will permit. Each print is titled, signed, and numbered.

Birth of a Raven

The phrase “hand-pulled print” refers to exactly what you see here. Hands (in this case belonging to print minion Bryn) pulling the print off the matrix (in this case a woodblock) after pressing (in this case via an etching press).

Pre-order on the Raven edition coming soon. Subscribe to our mailing list if you’d like to be e-mailed about pre-orders, special events, and new work.

Arcanum Bestiarum

Now available for pre-order from Three Hands Press

I’d like to thank you all for your patience this year as I’ve worked in secrecy on my largest series of woodcut prints to date. I’m happy to announce this series will be gracing the pages of Robert Fitzgerald’s, “Arcanum Bestiarum” available for pre-order now from Three Hands Press.

The first showing of the original woodcut prints from the series will be at the Seattle Esoteric Book Conference this September, though if you’d like a preview of a few select pieces I will be showing a couple at RAW:Solstice this Thursday night at the Bossanova Ballroom.

Print edition sales and further showings to be announced.

RAWartists Portland June 21st

Artist's proof hand-colored with minerals.

I’ve recently been accepted into RAWartists and will be showing with them for the first time on June 21st! Join me at the Bossanova Ballroom for Solstice: an evening of mixed media, fashion and music. Tickets are available here for $10. Selecting my name when you purchase tickets supports my participation and is very much appreciated.

As for Serpentine Cthulhu here, he’s my latest unique colored artist proof painted with a mix of genuine serpentine, jadeite, zoisite, sodalite, Minnesota pipestone, vivianite, garnet, turquoise, and bronzite. As you can see, he’s substantially different from the first green Cthulhu proof. He’ll be framed and available at the Solstice event.

2012 Portland H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival May 11-13th

"HPL"

The 2012 HPLFF is nearly upon us and I’m determined to crawl out of my art cave and enjoy the festival. “Early bird” discounts on tickets end today at 5pm. Discounts aside, procrastinators be warned, because the Hollywood theatre has upgraded their seats and installed tables in some theatres, there are less tickets available to begin with. The festival usually sells out during the night, but this year it might sell out ahead of time.

Last I heard, VIP tickets were down to just a couple available. VIP tickets include all of the goodies listed here, as well as a few unlisted items — such as a mini woodcut print from me!

Look for my display of fine editioned mythos woodcuts in the vendor’s room — we’ll have a number of framed and unframed works available including the nearly sold out Cthulhu necronomicon page and a few one-of-a-kind hand-colored proofs. Hope to see you there!

Sacrilege opening February 18th

Although I’ve been on hiatus from showings to allow myself time to focus on the creation of a large new body of work, I couldn’t say no to another group show at Congregation Gallery. I won’t be able to make the trip to Hollywood for the opening, but several of my newest prints will be in attendance.

Appearance of these artworks in and on the books varies depending on the edition type (standard hardcover, deluxe hardcover, and special hardcover). Please see Three Hands Press for more information on the book editions.

As with all of my prints, these were hand carved in wood and printed on an etching press with archival oil based-black ink, and off-white Rives BFK. Each print is signed and numbered. A limited quantity of lower numbered prints are available as matched number portfolio sets. See below for further details and ordering information.
