Since my high school days, I have been a fan of the work of H.P. Lovecraft and his "C'thulhu Mythos" stories especially. This is a drawing I did back in 1977, just for fun, illustrating what I thought a small statuette of the dreaded Elder God might look like.
I think the words on the fragment of paper in the drawing are from a Lovecraft poem.
Trivia note: I've left this photo uncropped so that the edges of the paper on which I drew this piece are visible -- it's another one of the pieces of packing material I found back then to supplement my meager supply of drawing paper. -- PL
