Thinking of HPL Seventy-seven Years Later
The words above were penned by NecronomiCon's own brilliant The Joey Zone after he visited Lovecraft's grave this year, seventy-seven years after The Old Gent from Providence passed on into the Beyond. He graciously allowed me to draw a few panels to his words, making it a shared experience not only for me, but for any who reads this. If we can't join him at Swan Point Cemetary this year, we stand with him in kinship.
This isn't only a reflection upon the past, The Joey Zone explains; it embraces the present and reaches towards the future, for Providence's Brown University is currently celebrating its 250 anniversary, and next year is H.P. Lovecraft's 125th birthday, which will be duly celebrated at the recently announced NecronomiCon Providence 2015, which will feature Ramsey Campbell along with other honored guests of distinction. Below, catch a sneak peek at the event's poster in development by The Joey Zone himself.
