Lovecraft Sketch MThF: A Keziah Mason & Brown Jenkin Birthday

Lovecraft Sketch MThF: A Keziah Mason & Brown Jenkin Birthday

Today’s mid-week update is… a birthday card from Keziah Mason and her demonic familiar Brown Jenkin, from H.P. Lovecraft’s “The Dreams in the Witch-House”! That knife isn’t just for slitting the throats of infants for human sacrifices, it’s also for cutting delicious cake, if you’re lucky enough to be in Arkham on your birthday… and if you’re not lucky enough, hyperspace travel makes it possibly for Keziah & Brown to come visit you ANYWHERE bearing their sugary, charnel booty. You haven’t been surprised until Brown Mason teleports into the middle of your cake and burrows out in a cascade of frosting, causing delighted shrieks from the entire party.

This was a commissioned sketch, of course, although I erased the incriminating names. To the recipients: I hope you liked it, and thanks for letting me post it on the site! I’m working hard on the next page(s) of “The Doom That Came to Sarnath”, which will hopefully go up this weekend. Happy late 4th of July, American browsers, and happy random day in the year, everyone else!

    I really hope you will eventually compile all these Lovecraftian drawings into a book!

  2. Esn says:

    Not a bad idea… perhaps bundled together with The Doom that Came to Sarnath and any other future Lovecraft adaptations of yours, as a sort of addendum to the “Kadath” graphic novel.

    By the way, I was browsing IndieGoGo recently and came across yet another Kadath graphic novel adaptation asking for funding (that looks currently like it won’t make it, though):

    Nice, but I must remind you that Brown Jenkin left two sets of tiny paw like marks with thumbs more in line with the anthropo than a rodentia.

  5. Night-Gaunt says:

    For me Brown Jenkin’s face and head are closer to a humans than a rat’s but that is how I interpret the description of him. I imagine that such creatures appear when you first go voyaging throughout hyper space. It isn’t a regular rat that Ganesh rides and is a familiar——-it is a creature like Brown Jenkin with yellow saber fangs and tiny human-like hands!
