Call of Cthulhu book cover

Started working on a series of illustrations for classic book covers. This is a preliminary sketch for The Call of Cthulhu and other weird stories by H.P. Lovecraft.

The best of my cover designs will be compiled into a little pamphlet/book and used as portfolio to send to publishers etc.

Also have ideas for a cover for Romeo and Juliet, and a few others.  let me know if you have any good suggestions.

I was a great fan of these books as a kid and would be interested to see cover designs similar to the Cthulhu one.

I've never heard of this but looks worth reading. The new penguin paperbacks of The Chrysalids and The Kraken Wakes have great covers.
