Ramsay Campbell's Y'Golonac by calebcleveland
Ramsay Campbell's Y'Golonac
“He saw why the shadow on the frosted pane yesterday had beenheadless, and he screamed. As the desk was thrust inside by the towering naked figure, on whose surface still hung rags of the tweed suit, [the man’s] last thought was an unbelieving conviction that this was happening because he had read the Revelations… but before he could scream out his protest his breath was cut off as the hands descended on his face and the wet red mouths opened in their palms.” - Ramsey Campbell
Brian Lumley's Yibb-Tstll by calebcleveland
Brian Lumley's Yibb-Tstll
“Of more or less manlike proportion, the-thing-had a head, a polished black lump atop its sloping shoulders of stone. Two eyes were frozen in oddly unnatural positions on the surface of the head: one was up near the top, the other was low, where the corner of a mouth might have been in a more nearly normal statue. The lower eye was green and shone with an inner luminosity-a massive emerald-but the other was of a reddish, bloody hue, and of the two it looked decidedly more real. 
The narrowly sloping shoulders were cloaked, as was the bulky body beneath; but the cloak, carved of the same stalagmite stone as the god, was open in front to reveal many polished black breasts. This was an anomaly in itself since patently the figure was male. Beneath the cloak where it billowed in petrified rigidity, a cluster of stone night-gaunts, their wings folded, clung tightly, almost lovingly, to the unseen body of the god. The idol was a nightmare, made even more nightmarish by its height-which was almost three times that of a tall man!”
- Hero of Dreams, Brian Lumley
H.P. Lovecraft's Yig by calebcleveland
H.P. Lovecraft's Yig
“No—that window was not a perfect square. Something had encroached on the lower edge. Nor was the ticking of the clock the only sound in the room. There was, beyond dispute, a heavy breathing neither her own nor poor Wolf’s. Wolf slept very silently, and his wakeful wheezing was unmistakable. Then Audrey saw against the stars the black, daemoniac silhouette of something anthropoid—the undulant bulk of a gigantic head and shoulders fumbling slowly toward her.
“Y’aaaah! Y’aaaah! Go away! Go away! Go away, snake-devil! Go ’way, Yig! I didn’t mean to kill ’em—I was feared he’d be scairt of ’em. Don’t, Yig, don’t! I didn’t go for to hurt yore chillen—don’t come nigh me—don’t change me into no spotted snake!”
But the half-formless head and shoulders only lurched onward toward the bed, very silently.”
A gug, from H.P. Lovecraft by calebcleveland
A gug, from H.P. Lovecraft
“It was a paw, fully two feet and a half across, and equipped with formidable talons. After it came another paw, and after that a great black-furred arm to which both of the paws were attached by short forearms. Then two pink eyes shone, and the head of the awakened gug sentry, large as a barrel, wabbled into view. The eyes jutted two inches from each side, shaded by bony protuberances overgrown with coarse hairs. But the head was chiefly terrible because of the mouth. That mouth had great yellow fangs and ran from the top to the bottom of the head, opening vertically instead of horizontally.”

Wow, been a while!

Getting a lot of questions about this line of drawings I've been posting: What's it for?  Is there a story behind it? Was Angela Lansbury really ever that sexy? The answer to all those questions can be answered by three words: "Thrilling Adventure Hour". It's simply one of the greatest podcasts ever. Serial adventures like "Sparks Nevada: Marshall on Mars" and "Colonel Tick-Tock" are performed in front of a live audience in the style of old-timey radio shows.  I listen to it all the time when I'm working, and it never fails to make me smile while pushing the pencil around. Also, the drawings have caught the notice of the show's creators, and may end up being part of a collaboration of sorts: stay tuned!
