Yet another proof that even the deadliest unearthly monsters aren’t as far from us, insignificant human dust, as we would like to think:
Mr. & Mrs. Cthulhu and their scared Little Spawn
It’s certainly one of the best portraits of HPL I’ve had the chance to come across. Everything in it is an ode to Lovecraft and his works. A very atmospheric piece of art!
I read his stuff pretty young and it really, really scared me. He taught me the pleasure in being scared, which is a useful tool in life. The Wikipedia entry is good but you really need to read his work to get it. It’s totally unique, though you’ll likely recognize something of his work in contemporary horror movies and books. His work is incredibly relevant and fresh seventy years after they were written.
I should warn you, this author changed my outlook on life. He expanded the shadows deeper and made sure I understood my mind would totally break if I could actually see what’s there. He certainly makes things more interesting.

Daikichi Amano (whose real name remains a mystery) is a very secretive paranormal investigator from Japan who uses the cover of this fake “artistic” website to publish the results of his investigations on the very popular cult of Cthulhu and Dagon in his homeland.
In his latest update, he displays the horrors of human sacrifice, a widespread practice among Nipponese cultists, and gives us the rare proof that the Deep Ones aren’t just a myth invented by H. P. Lovecraft in his description of the terrifying town of Innsmouth.
Let’s have a look at his new findings:
After catching a group of Deep Ones in its nets by accident:
this grisly group of saddened cultists:
was forced to offer a human sacrifice to appease its feared Gods’ wrath:
As the tradition wants it, the poor girl was methodically tortured and cephalopodically suffocated:
She finally died in a pool of her own blood mixed to the replete octopi’s gooey slime:
only to be resurrected as a Hybrid a few days later in one of the cultits bathtub:
We can only hope that Daikichi Amano’s true identity will never be revealed and wish that his amazing work of publishing the secret horrors that are perpetrated behind our dull backs will never stop.
