The Pickman Ghoul

"There, on a tombstone of 1768 stolen from the Granary Burying Ground in Boston, sat a ghoul which was once the artist Richard Upton Pickman" 
OK, it's not an EXACT representation of the Pickman Ghoul I know (as he was described as "naked and rubbery" in the story) but for me it captures the "feel" of the Character perfectly.

I Love this miniature, it clearly shows the fact he (it?) was a person once upon a time.

Not my best work (sorry) I was really ill last night, as it was likely I would be sleeping - I just plowed on through - he's come out a little greener than I would have preferred as well.

  1. He's not my vision of Pickman but he is an interesting figure.
