Maija Pietikäinen

I’m a 25-year-old Lovecraft enthusiast from Finland. Ever since I first read his work in my late teens I’ve been greatly inspired by his atmospheric prose. I’ve tried my best to capture these strange visions on paper.

I haven’t had any art education yet, but I’m hoping to get to study graphic design soon. I have done a few illustrations for magazines and books (not Lovecraft-related though), and I’d love to become a professional illustrator some day.

In addition to traditional art I have recently started doing more experimental work, mainly for interior decoration purposes.

    Hi, my wife and I were in Helsinki and discovered, in a cafe or pub fairly central in the city, a large plaque or memorial written about Lovecraft. It had his picture on it, I believe, and was written in Finnish, I assume. I regret I was not quick-witted enough to take a picture – does anybody have more information about this, the plaque, its contents or its location?

    Wow, you are incredibly talented and this is all great work. “The Basalt Pillars of the West” is my favorite. I think I’m going to have to start reading Lovecraft now.
