The cats of Ulthar by velvetcat The cats of Ulthar by velvetcat
"It is said that in Ulthar, which lies beyond the river Skai, no man may kill a cat; and this I can verily believe as I gaze upon him who sitteth purring before the fire. For the cat is cryptic, and close to strange things which men cannot see. He is the soul of antique Aegyptus, and bearer of tales from forgotten cities in Meroe and Ophir. He is the kin of the jungle’s lords, and heir to the secrets of hoary and sinister Africa. The Sphinx is his cousin, and he speaks her language; but he is more ancient than the Sphinx, and remembers that which she hath forgotten."

"The cats of Ulthar" by H.P.Lovecraft.
This illustration is the very beginning of the story.

I reitirate all my praise from Dagon - with your three works on the topic, on my estimate, you are already on the front rank of Lovecraftian artists here (and may I say in the front rank generally, illustrations in Lovecraft's books very often fails to reach this standard), and from your other works generally exceedingly talented.

This means a lot, thank you very much. I feel very honored. Lovecraft has always been one of my main inspirations, and I really felt that I want to convey the atmosphere of his stories as best as I can.
Thank you again :heart:
