Acrylic on Masonite - 17" X 28”
LOVECRAFT'S NIGHTMARE B
Del Rey Books asked Michael to do 2 paintings of horrific images they could use on 7 volumes of H.P. LOVECRAFT stories. He didn't have to illustrate the stories, just create images that conveyed the mood. This and LOVECRAFT'S NIGHTMARE A form his only real diptych—1 artistic image created on 2 panels and the paintings can meet side by side either way with one flowing into the other. They are featured in MICHAEL WHELAN'S WORKS OF WONDER, his second art book, and they are hugely popular with heavy metal bands and fans.
