"I frantically made the final mesmeric passes..."
HPLHS illustrator Darrell Tutchton is making available some of his original paintings used as art for the Dark Adventure Radio Theatre series. In this arresting image, Quinlan attempts to mesmerize poor M. Valdemar at the exact moment of his death in The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar.
Darrell has been a part of the HPLHS from its earliest days in Colorado in the 1980s. He studied illustration at the Kansas City Art Institute and earned his MFA at the Savannah College of Art and Design. He's created innumerable Lovecraftian abominations, monstrosities and nightmares. He currently resides in Savannah, Georgia.
Painting is made with waterproof inks. New distressed-looking glassed frame measures 23 x 19 inches, painting is 11x 14.
