I was horribly disappointed to discover that Lovecraft was a fucking dumbass racist. It makes sense (this is not attempting to forgive him, at all) – the US has always been deeply racist, but at the time when Lovecraft was writing, the aether was full of horrors like Madison Grant’s The Passing Of The Great Race and Goddard’s The Kallikak Family. Americans were bombarding themselves with justifying pseudo-science that bolstered their racism, and a science fiction/horror writer would tend to be exposed to those concepts.
Representing R’lyeh always seems like a fun challenge to me – how can you do a painting of a city that has geometry that supposedly cannot be contained on your page?
