He's also worked with Alice Cooper, Slipknot, Usher, Disney and Nickelodeon, as well as appearing on Making Monsters and having trained dozens Face Off contestants. Known in the Lovecraft community for his H.P.

Paul Komoda is a sculptor, illustrator, and  designer inspired by a lifelong obsession with monsters, dreams and nightmares, medical anomalies, and the weirder side of the zoological spectrum. Over the years he's delved into jewelry, action figures, album artwork, erotic/grotesque illustration, and anatomically inspired body art. In the early 2000s he worked for H.R. Giger, on several jewelry and sculpture projects. More recently, he's done work for Sideshow Collectibles, Darkhorse Comics, Amalgamated Dynamics Incorporated, and had sculpted the miniatures for the H.P.

Mike Dubisch has been bringing a Lovecraftian twist to his fantasy art, illustration and comics for a quarter century, beginning in his mid teens.

His work is held in the permanent collection of The Museum of Cartoon and Comic Art. His Lovecraftian Graphic Novel WEIRDLING was published in 2007 to critical acclaim.

When not occupied whispering to insects and cataloging esoteric ephemera, Nick Gucker is typically perched at his art table conjuring up nightmare visions and freakish delights out of ink, charcoal and acrylic media. His art has frequently appeared in the pages of Strange Aeons MagazineThe Magazine of Bizarro FictionDark Discoveries and online publications including theLovecraft eZine.

PETE VON SHOLLY is a writer, artist, director, and producer with a leaning toward the fantastic side of the arts (some would use less generous words like weird, insane, morbid - what do they know?!) His HP Lovecraft Illustrated vol 1 can satisfy the most demanding demon in us. CAPITOL HELL is his first venture into the political satire arena (unless you count Hollywood politics).
