Giving Form to the Unthinkable

kxc1eec

Almost everyone knows who Cthulhu is and what he looks like (hell, he’s so well known that my spellcheck underlined his name and insisted I capitalize it). The tentacle-faced bat-winged giant monstrosity from the deep can be found in card games, on t-shirts, in uber-cute chibi plush form, and even on bumper stickers (Cthulhu for President 2016: Why Choose the Lesser of Two Evils? If only…).  However, H.P. Lovecraft, the master of the weird and sanity-destroying, created a twisted universe full of nightmare creatures that will drive you to gibbering madness with just one glance. Like Azathoth up there. (My spellcheck is insisting there’s no such word. Oh sweet innocent spellcheck…) CoffeeForKafka on Imgur seems to be seeking to bring to light all of the lesser-known but just as mind-bendingly horrific creatures of Lovecraft’s Mythos. Whether you thank him or curse his name is up to you.
