    One of my favorite scary stories is H.P. Lovecraft’s “A Shadow Over Innsmouth,” which is about a prissy youngster who goes antiquing in a town populated by (spolier!) fish people.  It’s chock full of dreadful buildup, and so I’ve been meaning to do some character sketches for it for some time.  Here are a few, including the narrator, the priest from the Esoteric Order of Dagon, alcoholoic nonagenarian Zadock Allen, the young grocery store manager, bus driver Joe Sargent, and a bunch of Innsmouth residents and Deep Ones (as the full-blown fish folk are called).  I also did a big Dagon, from the short story of the same name, whom I’ve heard described as a Deep One old enough to have grown to a massive size.  For scale, he should be about double the size as he’s depicted here, but I wanted him to fit, y’know.  

    Originals for these available on my website.

    The odds of being attacked by a shark in the US are 1 in 11,500,000, but no one gets mad at people who want to avoid the ocean.

    The odds of a woman being sexually assaulted in her lifetime are 1 in 6, but if she doesn’t feel safe around strange men she’s a stereotyping bitch.

    Strange old world we live in.
