Creatures at Gallery Nucleus



Three creatures are headed to Gallery Nucleus in Los Angeles for the upcoming show At the Mountains of Madness: a Tribute to the Writings of Lovecraft. As an old fan of H P Lovecraft's work, I am astounded and delighted by the work I've seen that's part of this exhibit. The other exhibitors are incredibly talented people, and it is an honour to have my work included in this show. The images below attest the mastery of some of the other exhibitors. Click on the images below for a look at more amazing works from their creators.
