Assignment 6


“I shall never forget the afternoon when first I stumbled upon the half-hidden house of death. It was in mid-summer, when the alchemy of Nature transmutes the sylvan landscape to one vivid and almost homogenous mass of green; when the senses are well-nigh intoxicated with the surging seas of moist verdure and the subtly indefinable odours of the soil and the vegetation. In such surroundings the mind loses its perspective; time and space become trivial and unreal, and echoes of a forgotten prehistoric past beat insistently upon the enthralled consciousness.”

-H.P. Lovecraft, The Tomb

One thought on “Assignment 6

  1. I think this is a really good representation of this quote, because of how there is a dead flower, so you have the sense of summer but it still has that creepy vibe that the quote has. I also really like the font of your words because it looks something you’d see in a horror movie, or like a warning of “get out” or something. Overall the color combination works really well with the grays and the blues, because it helps achieve this mixed feeling of both summer and death.
