Having just stumbled across this 3D printed guitar inspired by the work of H.P. Lovecraft, I thought I’d compile a little collection of other artworks inspired by the dark author.

tumblr_lkuc2y5KnI1qarjnpo1_1280Lisel Ashlock. Call of Cthulhu. Acrylic on birch. Based on the novel of H.P. Lovecraft. Found here. This piece reminds me of Giger too.


Dave Carson. Found here. So many lines!


From The Call of Cthulhu (Graphic Novel), found here. You can view the whole book through that link.


By Luciana Nedelea. I think this is my favourite. I love anything with a jellyfish!

I would love to hear any more suggestions of Lovecraft inspired artists, particularly the not so well known. Leave me a comment if you have any tips! If you’d like me to feature your own work, just drop me an email: jamiesnelling@gmail.com

Horror Art – the Dystopian surrealism of Zdzisław Beksiński

Zdzisław Beksiński was a Polish artist utilizing paint, photography, and sculpting to relay his visions of dystopian surrealism. He went to school for architecture in Krakow but had no formal study or training in fine art. Beksiński was murdered in 2005, when a teenage acquaintance stabbed him because he refused to lend the young man money. (February, 24, 1929 – February, 21, 2005)

Album Artworks by Master Kristian Wåhlin (aka Necrolord)

“It all started with friends in other bands saw my pictures and asked if I wanted to paint them – and then it just rolled on,” says Kristian Wåhlin about his activities as an artist and illustrator.

Christian, born in 1971, grew up in Gothenburg and then four year resident in Höganäs with a studio in the Bay.

His artist’s interest was piqued even before school age, he left image line and preparatory arts education Schillerska High School.

Fantasy, outstanding detail characterize the Christian’s work, both in terms of painting as drawing and illustration.The reasons vary, but the feeling is the same, dreamy, melancholic, often dramatic and explosive. Myth and Philosophy interspersed with existential motifs filled with powerful symbolism that life and death.

Here i mentioned few artworks those are absolutely great and precious.

Bow to Master of Necro Dreams and dismay.
