Original hand-drawn line illustration digitally painted in Gimp.

The face of a Deep One, H.P. Lovecraft’s race of fish-people who lived on a reef off the coast of New England in the chilling story ‘The Shadow over Innsmouth’. As frightening as Lovecraft described the ocean-dwelling Deep Ones, those who lived on land in the forgotten town were worse: in a quick glance they may have passed as human, but upon closer inspection one may have noticed their large, unblinking eyes, oddly misshapen heads, or the curious, gill-like folds of flesh on their necks. The last thing one would want to do is “Get the Innsmouth Look”, but it came together like a cosmetics ad!

I am quite fond of interpreting the works of H.P. Lovecraft and illustrating the myriad beasties he described.

“Pete Janes entertains the macro insect crowd with meticulous gouache and watercolor specimen pieces, while his more imaginary illustrations seem to be glimpses into faraway realities.”—noted art critic and Portland bum R. Terialspray

    I’ve spent a lifetime trying to get That Look, & it appears that you’ve had it all the time. Oh, well; never too late. Great job! Lovecraft Lives!!

  • Thanks Artwhiz! I’m back after a very frustrating couple of weeks of stalling uploads.

    Heh, heh – love the concept.

  • Lovecraft’s own attempts at humor were self-admittedly ham-fisted, so I think I’m just emulating that too! Thanks retro!
