Slime mold 
These are the fruiting bodies (sporocarps) of the slime mold identified as Arcyria cinerea (Trichiida - Arcyriaceae), a cosmopolitan and common species of myxomycete, that grows on dead wood, logs and branches, barks of living trees, or plant debris.
Although the usual color of this species is gray to light ochraceous buff, or olive buff, the coloration and shape is quite variable as these ones that are very dark.

Clathrus archeri, commonly known as Octopus Stinkhorn or Devil’s Fingers, is a type of fungus that is native to Australia and Tasmania. It begins its life in a sub-erumpent egg, then erupts into four to seven elongated slender arms initially erect and attached at the top, which eventually unfold to reveal the spore-containing gleba. In its mature stage, it gives off a foul odor, hence its classification in the stinkhorn family, or the Phallaceae. The smelly spores attract flies and other insects, which contribute to the dispersal process.

One of my favorite scary stories is H.P. Lovecraft’s “A Shadow Over Innsmouth,” which is about a prissy youngster who goes antiquing in a town populated by (spolier!) fish people.  It’s chock full of dreadful buildup, and so I’ve been meaning to do some character sketches for it for some time.  Here are a few, including the narrator, the priest from the Esoteric Order of Dagon, alcoholoic nonagenarian Zadock Allen, the young grocery store manager, bus driver Joe Sargent, and a bunch of Innsmouth residents and Deep Ones (as the full-blown fish folk are called).  I also did a big Dagon, from the short story of the same name, whom I’ve heard described as a Deep One old enough to have grown to a massive size.  For scale, he should be about double the size as he’s depicted here, but I wanted him to fit, y’know.  

Originals for these available on my website.

THE LARVAE (AND ADULT FEMALE) OF THE TRILOBITE BEETLE

The trilobite [beetle] genus (Duliticola) belongs to the family Lycidae, commonly known as net-winged beetles.

This family is a pretty interesting one, because many of its species display huge physical differences between their males and their females. Trilobite beetles are no exception. While the females are easily recognisable – that incredible form is retained from when they were larvae [see Wikipedia neoteny] – the males look entirely different. They pretty much just look like plain old beetles, with long, winged bodies and a pair of thick antennae.

A while ago I heard a version of this story where Athena has pity on Medusa and turns her into the gorgon to protect her from all men. A gift instead of a punishment for her brother’s crimes.
It always stuck with me, so here’s a doodle.
