Concerning Brown Jenkin

   While reading various tributes to Ray Harryhausen, who passed away this week, I came across the blog of animator Richard Svennson. I looked up Richard's work on youtube and found that he had done a very creepy animated short about Brown Jenkin, the rat-like familiar from H.P. Lovecraft's story The Dreams in the Witch House. Check it out here:

And for a behind the scenes look at the construction of the creepy critter, go to this post on Richard's blog.

   Somebody needs to crowd fund a Lovecraft film and get Richard to animate for it.
