H.P. LOVECRAFT ORIGINAL Formal Pose by Joe Wehrle Jr.

Lovecraft Pencil Portrait--recreated Mirage Press portrait by Wehrle

This H.P. Lovecraft pencil portrait original by Joe Wehrle, Jr. recreates portraits of Lovecraft done for Mirage Press (square) and Lava Mountain Records (oval). The medium is heavy drawing pencil, not a sketch or preliminary drawing, but a full, detailed rendering which took many hours to complete. Image area 4 1/2" by 5 7/8" on 6" by 8 1/4" Strathmore board, signed in ink by the artist.
