Racism, handcuffs and tan half-pins

H. P. Lovecraft is, arguably, the most important author in the history of horror. The recalcitrant racist from Providence basically invented the modern horror genre back at the turn of the 20th century. Thorsten Bonsch (Xenomurphy) has created (with some help from Legopard) a highly atmospheric LEGO imagining of his study, complete with diabolical details and pretty presentation. Another entry for Mocathalon 2013.

H. P. Lovecraft’s Study

PS. And yes, I am planning to enter Alliterathalon 2013.

The Perfect Ending

These book-ends by Bart De Dobbelaer would make the perfect ends for any sci-fi book collection. In fact, Bart has me thinking that book-ends might be a fun new format to try building.

Bart has done his usual great jobs on these. The technical bits on the bottom have just the right amount of details to look interesting and clean at the same time. The contrast with the brightly colored organic tentacle shapes adds motion as visual interest for a scene that keeps me looking.

Bookends - Do not wake the Old One

Autumn in the Park

My favorite quote from H.P. Lovecraft inspired this surrealist work. The quote goes like this: “the blind cosmos grinds aimlessly on from nothing to something and from something back to nothing again, neither heeding nor knowing the wishes or existence of the minds that flicker for a second now and then in the darkness.”

You can buy this creation from Creations for Charity, and there’s only 5 days left before the store closes for this year!

Cameron (Primus) applies lessons he’s learned as one of the most talented Bionicle builders on the Web to an exceptional dark creature inspired by the writing of H.P. Lovecraft.

LEGO Cthulhu diorama

The BURPs don’t do much for me, but the Old One more than makes up for a lack of detail in the landscaping.
