I’ve always had an interest in  the unknown, and it often manifested in my love of space, however a few years ago I became interested in the writing of H. P. Lovecraft. Thus, I started to do art based on his monstrous beings. This is Rhogog, one of the great old ones who exist in various parts of the universe, sleeping. Rhogog was said to be created when Cthulhu and Hastur fought above Britain and Cthulhu shed blood which several Star-Spawn put an ‘entity’ into for unknown purposes. This ‘entity’ lay dormant, growing in power until it became Rhogog. Rhogog is a great, black oak tree, hot to the touch, and a being of darkness, and unimaginable power.
