Forest Folk

My friend has been spending her Spring break drawing Pokémons for her kids, and told me her son was styling himself Professor Oak. I thought that was funny, so I drew him a flunky to boss around.

Meet the Sapling. He’s a very loyal aide to Professor Oak and always does his job with the utmost seriousness.

A Few Drawings

I haven’t had a lot of time to devote to drawing lately but I did manage to get a few marks on the page in the last few days.

Hopefully I captured enough of the hallmarks of the famous 1931 Boris Karloff depiction that this caricature hits the mark.

Weird Document Discovered in Desk of Miskatonic Professor

Following his disappearance in the Summer/Fall of 1939, a strange document was discovered in the desk of Dr. Hans Peter Alter of Miskatonic University’s Biology Dept. It was a simple anatomical diagram of the kind one would expect among the professional effects of a renowned man of science. Clearly related to subject 20.XI.19, the document stands out for two particular reasons.
