Illustrator Ysemay Dercon visits Lovecraft’s former home at 10 Barnes St, for Halloween. I like the ‘collected leaves’ idea.
Perhaps one could draw on the actual leaves, incising them with the tiny tip of a fine scratch-board pick? And then record their drying out and changing colours and crumbling into weirdness. Or how about shaping them subtly into tiny dreamland-ish face masks?
