Lovecraft's Legacy: Artist Jill Baumann (1993) & The Thing on the Doorstep

On ebay, this art has been offered for auction. The seller states:

My name is Jill Bauman and I am the artist that created the original art for this print.

This image was published as an interior illustration in the short story collection, “The Dunwich Horror” by H.P.Lovecraft for the story, “TheThing on the Doorstep.” Published by Easton Press, 1993.

The image size is 10”x 14 ½” in a 16”x 20” black mat with a mylar protective sleeve. The mat is wider on the print--I cropped it for the photo to allow you to see a larger image.

In that time I have produced hundreds of covers for horror, mystery, fantasy, science fiction, and best selling books and other products for publishers such as: Ace Books, Tor Books, Avon Books, Doubleday Science Fiction Book Club, TSR, White Wolf, Inc., DAW Books, Berkley/Putam Publishing, St. Martin’s Press, Cemetery Dance Publications, Easton Press, Amazing Stories magazine, Fantasy and Science Fiction Magazine, The Horror Express magazine and Weird Tales magazine.
