The Lovecraftian Thing a Day (2018) No.13: Sticky Monsters

John Kenn Mortensen’s Sticky Monsters is a visual phantasmagoria of the strange, the weird, and the creepy, all expressed via the medium of pen and ink on post-it notes. Whilst the influence of Edward Gorey runs through many of the illustrations in this wonderful little book, Lovecraft also looms large; indeed, explicitly Lovecraftian examples Mortensen’s work appeared at the Ars Necronomicon exhibition in Providence at NecronomiCon 2017 - so here’s hoping we might, at some point, see a dedicated volume of Cthulhu mythos-themed work by the artist.
