Another old sketch. Originally an idea for a Cthulhu Tales cover, a mash-up of Aubrey Beardsley and Gustav Klimt.
Obviously far too subtle, so i binned it, but it helped inspire a comic book series; an Edwardian detective horror story, with monsters in the sewers, assassins that kill in dreams, exploding dolls and a painting that bleeds out madness.
Coming sometime this century!

Well I like that image alot!
corker of an image.
And some crackin' ideas fer yer Edwardian Horror.
Ho about sometime this decade please. Too good an idea to leave that long. Beautiful image.
Love it! Klimt and Beardsley too an outstanding pedigree!
Man I love your sketch work. Sometimes I wish you'd shift your work a bit this way.
"Painting that bleeds out madness" just became one of my favorite phrases ever.
ade, gary, paul, indio - many thanx, fellas.
i'm actually all fuelled up to start this story, but really, where is the time to do it?
and knowing me, when i do get the time to do my own ideas i get an offer i can't refuse and bills to pay.
not that i'm complaining.
eric - shifting 'that way', slowly but surely. tis a little scary.
sean - you wouldn't say that if you saw the painting.
