It was bound to happen eventually! I couldn't bring myself to attempt a representation of the complete horror and atrocity that encompasses the great Cthulhu's full being, so here's a bit of his head.

I also considered marking this as "mature content," because gazing upon his awfulness is supposed to induce instant insanity, but I'll risk it.

I made this as part of a series of Lovecraftian prints that will be given out as prizes for the Kickstarter project, "Call Girl of Cthulhu," an (obvious) parody of the charming short story, "Call of Cthulhu" by H. P. Lovecraft in the form of a bawdy horror film. It sounds hysterical, so if you're interested in helping them out, go throw a dollar at them! [link]

Took me a moment to realize that was his eye, but now that I can see it--truly terrifying! Wonderful :D

Little known fact: that crazy impossible language Cthulhu speaks is actually just Welsh.

HAH great picture and very creepy looking....just read this book fully lol.

my fellow Cthulhu fan... Kaiju Combat (a PC game being made by the team that brought the world Godzilla:Destroy all Monsters Melee, Godzilla:Save The Earth, Rampage Total Destruction, and Godzilla unleashed) is a new giant monster fighting game the team is trying to get funded on kickstarter in October. We just need folks to sign up on the forums and give your input. This game is using a voting system to get various monsters into the game (Cthulhu is a major one being voted on right now and will be in game if we get enough votes for him on his poll according to the creators of the game) and we need forum members to vote and give feedback so we can make this game the best it can be!
