The Collect Call of Cthulu — a silly illo by Ian Gunn

The Collect Call of Cthulu

The Collect Call of Cthulu

ET phones home or, in this case, the collect call of Cthulu is placed. Is he calling Ethulu to check up, maybe? Is this why Ethulu was wrapped in a towel, dripping tar, and looking really pissed off last Friday?

Silly Illo artist Ian Gunn

Ian Gunn, creator of these silly illos (illustrations), was a much-loved award-winning artist based in Melbourne. Cancer took him from us too soon.

Ian left a legacy including lots of great illustrations. Many of these illustrations are available for sale.

Victoria’s science fiction convention, Continuum, occasionally presents the Ian Gunn Memorial Award recognising the ‘unsung heroes’ of fandom: people consistently working in the background who never expect any recognition of their efforts. This commemorates Ian’s selfless efforts to reach out to others, encouraging others and thereby building the science fiction community.

K’rin Pender-Gunn, Ian’s widow, gave Dark Matter Zine permission to republish Ian’s artwork. Thanks, K’rin!
