This is my first fully original drawing and print. I am a huge fan of the Cthulhu Mythos and all things Lovecraftian. I wanted to do a homage to the story At the Mountains of Madness so I drew some basic mountain shapes, added some tentacles, a beckoning cave and some Elder Things flying overhead.
It was my first time ever trying to create the shapes of something like a mountain using lines carved in the solid background. Normally I’ve only done line drawings this is more complex. I also saw a wide bordered print by another artist with an ivy design and thought it would make a wonderful surround for the image with some mythos-like symbols. I think this gives the appearance of a page from the dread Necronomicon.
