Truly amazing art! last week i have just finished a volume about Blackwood´s John silence, may this be a Carnacki version of the episode called "the camp of the dog"? iI think it must be common to switch between these two characters (and Le Fanu´s Dr. Hesselius) because they are very similar, and share the same 1900´s feel that it´s so charming. Excuse my english and greetings from Argentina.
Hey Sebastián! You're right, this is a reference to the Camp of the Dog. I loved the werewolf idea in the story so had to draw my vision of it. You'll be seeing lots more character swaps with Carnacki on pulp stories in the future. And sometimes he'll be teaming up with the stories protagonists too.
Thanks for your fast reply. I was thinking that aswell as hodgson was specially good at marine subjects, Blackwood was a master in the "haunted camping" subgenre. The wendigo; the willows; and the story that you masterfully recreated are specially remarkable in his production. I´m an (unknown) illustrator and comic artist myself, and a few months ago i made some hodgsonian works inspired in the the novel "the night land" and "the voice in the night" (http://cabrol-art.blogspot.com.ar/2012/10/the-night-land-parte-2.html) I enjoy Carnacki´s stories but i find some of them disapointing in the way that hodgson transfigure a very powerful mistery into a flat prosaic tale by some clumsy natural explanations. I mean, while we remain ignorant of the causes the suspense and tension reaches high peaks, but all falls down in the end. Overall, when Carnacki fleet in panic and screaming in "the house among the laurels" and hide himself under an armor in "the thing invisible" it becomes a real character, far more interesting than the noble and solemn mr Silence. I hope to see your work brought to light soon, it´s looks very promising.
I completely agree, Blackwood is a master at the haunted camping subgenre. I read the willows a while back and only partly remember what it was about, but I do remember I really enjoyed it. The Wendigo is great, I actually drew an interpretation of the Wendigo a few years back. Your work is really really great, The Night Land was a really tough story to get through, and your interpretation of the land in those images makes it that much more interesting. Some of the 'scooby-doo' explanations in the Carnacki stories disappointed me too. I'm way more interested in the weird and supernatural unknown and unexplainable types of stories which is what my comic will be more of. But Carnacki as a character is fantastic, someone that is much easier to relate to because he can get scared when things are frightening. He acts much more human than some of the more noble and solemn characters like you brought up.My Carnacki won't be an exact replica of what Hodgson wrote, but I hope to do him justice and bring him back for fans of the original stories and have the opportunity to introduce him to new readers.
