If you haven't read The Southern Reach Trilogy yet by Jeff VanderMeer you're doing yourself a disservice as a reader. Here's a piece of art I made inspired by the first book Annihilation and the entity described therein only as "The Crawler."
I showed Jeff the art online and he thought it was cool then he featured it on his website along with his new tour dates. And that rocks. It's really a nice feeling knowing that the author himself dug my piece. Here's his post.
