A moody, mixed-media piece. The original illustration is in pencil, pen and ink on bristol board. I inverted it and touched it up in Seashore. This is best viewed larger!
H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu was a gigantic, octopus-headed wizard-scientist which walked the Earth and died millions of years before humankind. It has been said that Cthulhu will rise from his deathly sleep “when the stars are right” and that our time will be over. I am eternally grateful to Mr. Lovecraft for casting open the doors of his mythos for any and all to play with.
