This H.P. Lovecraft pencil portrait original by Joe Wehrle, Jr. recreates a portrait of Lovecraft done for a Lovecraft journal published by Harry O. Morris in the seventies. 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 3/8" by 5 3/4" on 6" by 8 1/4" Strathmore board, signed in ink by the artist.
