Pickman's Apprentice is our exciting art competition! Some of the best Mythos artists have only 90 minutes to complete a Lovecraftian masterpiece of visual art based on a wacky combination of a setting and a Mythos monster... suggested by you! Come be a part of this interactive art race and watch a live birth of madness right before your eyes.

Each finished piece will be auctioned off during the remainder of the festival, with all the proceeds going to our charity of AnimalAid.
