The Piper

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Malachi Robb

One of the "idiot pipers" of HP Lovecraft's mythos, minor elder gods who eternally play in praise of the blind demon sultan Azathoth. Despite Azathoth being described as "blind", I portray him with many eyes, to try and represent his chaotic aspect- seeing so much, that he can see nothing at all due to a lack of distinction. Often, I'll give him a face to go with the masses of red, eyed, tentacles, but, I wanted to focus on the piper this time, whose eyes are pinned shut in emulation of their master.Prismacolor pencils on black canva-paper.
