HP Lovecraft monsters as drawn by children

Posted by: Dave In: Design |Dreams |HPL |Writing

Via the Comics Alliance:

Since their original publication in the 1920s, the stories of H.P. Lovecraft have endured and grown into an entire subset of the horror genre unto themselves, with themes of the unavoidable insanity that comes with knowledge and cosmic insignificance that are far more subtle and ultimately terrifying than the average ghost story.

Which makes them great entertainment for eight year-olds.

Read the whole article ans see the rest of the pictures here.
