Terrible Old Man










The subject for this month’s office downtime art project – ‘Supernatural’. My submission is an illustration for H.P. Lovecraft’s short story ‘the Terrible Old Man’.

‘folk say that on a table … are many peculiar bottles, in each a small piece of lead suspended pendulum-wise from a string. And they say that the Terrible Old Man talks to these bottles,¬†addressing them by such names as Jack, Scar-Face, Long Tom, Spanish Joe, Peters and Mate Ellis.
