Jason Thompson has been posting some exquisite, breathtakingly detailed drawings of Lovecraft characters and related figures recently. It's only fair I share them with you.

You can read "The Yellow Sign" here, though my more sensitive readers should be warned that it's nothing like the work of HPL and even contains a female character who has dialogue. Shocking, I know. Anyway, ardent fans of both Chambers and Lovecraft have been writing their own versions of the play The King inYellow ever since, based on the few hints and quotes Chambers throws around, and this sketch seems to be based on one such fanwork. I like the adorable girl with a caterpillar train to her dress, and the beetle combs on the women, and the casual horror and torture.
