Sinister Lore and Arcane Truth

These illustrations by Martin Hanford depict my character Professor Caleb Blackthorne III delving deeply into his arcane research, and the terrifying lore of the Z'xulth. During the course of his myriad expeditions across the globe, Blackthorne encountered the nefarious acolytes and cultists of the Chaos Fiends on numerous occasions, and inexorably learned the terrifying axioms of the Black Galaxy. In piecing together the sinister pieces of this terrifying occult puzzle, Blackthorne ultimately sealed his own fate.
Below are the original pencils, the b&w inked version, and the final coloured work.


  1. Love that picture, and the lyrics about the professor's expeditions. More please! :)

  2. Fantastic! That artwork is sweet, and I love the Atlantis lyrics. :)

  3. Looks amazing, have you ever considered having graphic novels done based on your albums? I think they would fly off the shelf as quick as the Alan Moore Mythos books do.

    1. Yes indeed, Azathor! The illustrator Martin Hanford and I are currently working on some comics based on the lyrical mythos. More news and previews will be uploaded soon. Thanks for your support!
