H.P. Lovecraft's "Pickman's Model" retold in a stunning photo series

Artist Joshua Hoffine has retold a portion of H.P. Lovecraft's story "Pickman's Model" in a series of absolutely gorgeous photos that will appear in an upcoming issue of Famous Monsters of Filmland. I have exactly no idea how he makes these look as crazy awesome as he does, but I'm hoping he sells prints some day real soon so I can redecorate my blogging HQ in R'Lyeh with them.





Here are some details from Hoffine's blog:
With limited time and budget, I chose to focus on the moment in the story when Pickman brings Thurber, the narrator, into his underground studio to show him his Masterpiece – his greatest and worst work – the one that can never be shown in public.

Instead of creating one heroic image, I wanted to create a sequence of images as if they were shots from a scene in an old Hammer movie.
Just...wow. Joshua, I hope Great Cthulhu devours you last when he awakens from his sunken tomb. You've earned it.  There are a bunch more photos on Hoffine's site so head over there and start ogling them.

Also, you can read "Pickman's Model" online for free at Dagonbytes.
