Polyp of the Plateau of Leng by 

A hard-ink version of my pencil illustration Polyp of the Plateau of Leng created especially for this tshirt. A great deal of stipple shading went into this work, by all means, view larger.

One of my favorite things about the writer H.P. Lovecraft is that he welcomed other creators to utilize his work. As a child writing my own horror stories and constantly drawing, this was a free license to use his dynamic creations and locales, and it’s never really left my art.
One of my other favorite things is that, while a master of description, Lovecraft was often spare in his verbal illustration of the monsters and beings he created. It is never so much what he describes that tickles your fears; rather, it’s what he doesn’t. I have always interpreted this as also being a free license for writers and artists to spin from their own minds versions of his creations.

This most closely resembles Lovecraft’s Mi-Go, extraterrestrial fungoid crustaceans on inscrutable missions in Lovecraft’s The Whisperer in Darkness and the sonnet cycle The Fungi from Yuggoth

“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
