My little brother (who also enjoys Lovecraft so I'm currently showing him some of my favorite Lovecraft-related art) says: Close. The dang. Basement.

Tell him we tried, but it busted the lock and ate the hinges. ;)

Not really any particular monster from any particular book, but definitely inspired
by the book Threshold by Caitlin R. Kiernan.

Damn, better get the exterminator on the phone, or grab your sawed off shotgun and do the job yourself. I really love the textures and sepia tones this should be part of a story.

Shotguns only tick it off. Still no sign of the exterminator.

That monster is terrifying DX
But I love the gritty design of the basement, and the stuff you can see in the hall.

Creepy little bugger. I think I'll stay out of the basement till he goes away.

At least he doesn't come all the way up the stairs.

He/she probably prefers the dank coolness of the basement. :)

Interesting minds must be peered into... or something of the sort. Hope you don't mind me spying on yours. (Besides, I don't want to miss the map!)

Peer away. Just be careful on the cellar steps. Better yet, just don't go down there.
I've got something else coming before the map. And I'm an ace procrastinator!
But it will come!

They were cool. I think they've lodged themselves into my keyboard now!
And you never know what might pop into my gallery.
