Richard Upton Pickman is a Bostonian painter, notorious for creating horrifying paintings. His ghoulish works are brilliant, but they're so graphic that his membership in the Boston Art Club is revoked and he finds himself shunned by his fellow artists. Then Pickman mysteriously disappears, and his friend finds himself on a mission of horror and evil to discover the truth.

Pickman's Model is the dark story of a man's explanation for why he will not go to the police and share information about the disappearance of a once friend.
This is a phenomenal short story. Lovecraft's world is awe inspiring; his writing is engaging and effective. His rambling reveal creates a realistic one-sided dialogue that shows the speaker's panic and horror more effectively than any external narrative could.
Wyman's performance is powerful, emotional, and fluid. He skillfully uses pacing and the placement of pauses and breaths to emphasize the speaker's state of mind in a way that feels natural. His reading brings the story to life.
