Artist Skinner is gearing up for NecronomiCon, a celebration of H.P. Lovecraft and all that is Lovecraftian taking place August 20-23 in Providence, Rhode Island. Skinner will be one of numerous artists exhibiting work there, and what he’s created is Azathoth Invoked! Here’s an amazing video of the artist at work:
The final product:
Skinner describes Azathoth as
a sort of uncontrolled wild motherfucker that can’t be stopped and frankly, is just to hideous to behold!! But I tried to behold him or at least paint him for you to see. There’s a high powered priest conjuring an Avatar of Azathoth right there. Look at him go!
Skinner’s painting will be the one of the covers for issue 277 of Heavy Metal — that’s the issue after the one that is out now, with cover art by a fellow Skinner reveres as a god: Mr. Jack Kirby.
