A hard-ink version of my pencil illustration "Polyp of the Plateau of Leng":http://www.redbubble.com/people/spidersknee/art/4335629-1-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_
