Table of Contents, story #12:
A famous tattoo artist get his artistic inspiration from maddening dreams. While dreaming, he paint-walks the white walls of his studio and every morning he has his assistant paint them white again. However, his assistant has also been taking pictures of the walls before painting them, and those pictures are of an impossible landscape.
I don't write much in the first person; however, most of what H.P. Lovecraft wrote was in a strange version of the first person, a narrative of witness. This narrative style is where the narrator takes a backseat to a secondary character. The primary character undergoes some horrific physical transformation that causes the narrator-witness to have a psychological break.
In this story, I've taken a Lovecraft character and made him a famous tattoo artist. The mad prophet that wrote the Necronomicon used words and simple drawings to convey what the Old Ones wanted and how to communicate with them. What if the prophet was a graphic artist instead, and his canvas for prophecy human skin?
OK, stay tuned for updates.
