Toby Allen is a freelance illustrator living in the UK, who’s latest project should serve as Lovecraftian introduction for young kids. He specialises in children’s books, games design and character design – all of which come across in this cool project – a children’s book titled Baby Cthulhu.
The book follows Baby Cthulhu as he jumps through time and space to prepare for his best “fiend’s” birthday party.
The book is written by Shaeli Joya, and is based on the works of H P Lovecraft.
“I continually try to step outside the box with my concepts and ideas. I stay away from the generic and always aim to make unique and one-of-a-kind illustrations. I draw upon a variety of inspirations and references, such as fairy tales and ancient mythology, along with anime and manga and a little Pokémon™ and other video games thrown in for a modern twist. These elements give my work a bit of an edge, a style that is unique yet versatile.” explains Toby on his website.
