this, as we all know, is what the writing of the book actually looked like.

well I only recognize one of the creatures but if I wrote a cthulhu inspired story it would both start and end with approximately this scene. So, as far as I'm concerned, this is exactly how it happened.

Lovecraft was a sci-fi/supernatural horror writer in the 1930s, who invented the genre of which he wrote. Much of his work dealt with the vastness and unknowable quality of the universe, and human sanity being to fragile to handle what truly exists in the universe. The man in the chair is H.P. Lovecraft (Howard Phillips Lovecraft) himself, and surrounding him are some of his creations.

They are from left to right:
-An Elder Thing, the race that created life on Earth
-A Deep One, a race that lives beneath the ocean, worshiping the Great Old Ones, Cthulhu and Dagon
-A Mi-Go, aliens from the planet Yuggoth, who are known for their bizarre life support technology, or "brain jars", who are also sentient fungi
-And I have no idea what the thing on the far right is.

Look, realistically, aliens will be different from literally anything we know, if you want something /really/ strange then you'll want to check out the Great Race of Yith.

I can just see the little monster saying "Hey mi buddy here would be perfect for your story your working on".
Thought this was a really cool piece, I'm a big fan of H.P.Lovecraft's work.

A mi me encanto. Mientras charlaba con Alcatena en el congreso de ilustración sobre el trabajo que hizo ilustrando un bestiario de Lovecraft terminamos hablando sobre el panteón. Dado que hacia apenas unos días había adquirido un ejemplar en la Valija del Fuego terminé regalandoselo al man. A mi me encantó. Quién sabe que opine él.

Ah, from the description of its footprints, I didn't imagine the feet as having toes. [1] But then it's hard to visualize invisible eldritch abominations. :)

[1] Or perhaps it just sheds toes as it gets older?

Despite the presences of so many otherworldly beings and horrors in this same picture, this is a very charming and oddly sweet illustration to Lovecraft the author. Great job, good sir!
