The Lovecraftian Thing a Day (2018) No.32: Night Gaunts by Jim Pitts
Nightgaunts remain one of my favourite monsters from within the pages of the Lovecraftian bestiary, which is somewhat surprising given that they are one of the Lovecraft’s least teratologically fabulous creations - conforming ss they do to more traditional genre tropes by way of their recognisably devilish morphology. The smooth, featureless faces are, however, another matter entirely.
In any case, I was certain that this had appeared as part of 2016s Lovecraftian Thing a Day - but on closer scrutiny it appears not. Thus I present this framed print of Jim Pitts ‘Night Gaunts’ for your delectation and edification.
