Listen up fans of art, horror and Lovecraft, the incredibly talented photographer/artist Joshua Hoffine has teamed up with special effects artist J. Anthony Kosar once again to create another piece of mind blowing art. This time Hoffine and Kosar are creating a picture based on Lovecraft’s ‘The Shadow Over Innsmouth’.
Concept Art For ‘Innsmouth’
This is not the first project Hoffine and Kosar has teamed up on. The two talented artists have created two pieces in the past, titled ‘Last Stand’ and ‘Monster Prom’, as well as the short film ‘Black Lullaby.’ With the combined talent of these artists and their track record for creating fantastic artwork, I have no doubt that ‘Innsmouth’ will be just as incredible.
For those of you who don’t know very much about Joshua Hoffine, let me fill you in. Hoffine is seriously talented and slightly warped. Hoffine is considered the premier horror artist. He has a talent for creating photos with aspects of horror, so realistic you might question if they are computer generated or even painted, but his pieces are actually elaborate photos of people and props and often have dark subject matter, monsters and are seriously intense.
