Inktober 2019, week 1 plus
Friday, October 11th, 2019
Normally I do these on Mondays, but I was out of town and then there was some kind of power shutoff madness (mine was supposed to go but did not? whatever, PG&E, you run your public utility like the Muppet Show.) So, anyway, here you go, week one-and-then-some of Inktober!
Abbreviation decoder ring!
- wip = work in progress, ie, I’m probably going to color some or all of the drawing before it’s really done
- nfs = not for sale, ie, it’s a Patreon sketch and already belongs to someone else
- ACEO = Artist Card, Edition Original, also known as ATC or Artist Trading Card when traded rather than sold, which is a standard size I use for all my Patreon sketches these days
Want to get your own sketches, dibs on art, or just feel the warm glow of being part of my community of supporters? Head over to Patreon and pick a tier to get started! There’s also bonus cat photos sometimes, if that helps.

My friend Amber had a baby and I’ve been given the duty of being the lad’s fairy gothmother. So far that’s mostly consisted of helping keep mom sane, but she also commissioned me to draw something for the baby’s room.
Cthulhu here is a bit crabby about his getup, from the pink bonnet and binky to the happy yellow slippers. He’s expressing his displeasure with some rather graphic threats enacted on the poor teddy bear. Watch out, this Elder God’s not too into his naptime after all.
Want a Cthulhu shirt of your own? I put this baby on Redbubble so you, too, can sport a cranky Cthulhu.

Cthulhu Pickup Lines
Thursday, January 21st, 2016
“You’re hotter than Cthugha…”
“Are you an Elder God? Because your looks are driving me insane…”
“Even with strange aeons, my love will never die…”
Perhaps Cthulhu is not cut out for pickup lines.
Buy the Valentine in my Etsy shop, and show someone you love them in the cheesiest, most tentacular way possible.

Cthulhu is getting into the holiday spirit a little early this year! He’s trimming his tree with his favorite decoration, cultists. Even the tree is enjoying its little holiday snack, er, decor.
The greeting card will bring just the right holiday cheer to the right person — a fan of horror, especially the Lovecraftian sort, with a good sense of humor.

“You make Cthulhu tentacle-tied,” says the Elder God of legend and nightmare, looking quite wide-eyed and nervous. Will you take pity on Cthulhu and be his Valentine?

Three colors of pen, three different inking techniques, and one creepy drawing. Cthulhu glares balefully out of his cave, surrounded by strange growths and bathed in darkness. He waits for the stars to be right, for the summoning that will bring him from his sleep of death and up into the world once again.
Cthulhu Waits, 6″x4″ pen & ink on Fluid watercolor paper.
Above, you can see all three inking techniques up close, the roe-like stalactites hanging down above the fine-inked blackness, with Cthulhu in his scribbly, tentacled glory. Below, you can see the piece in a frame, just waiting to drive you mad with its strange details.

Fetch the Cultist
Thursday, April 24th, 2014
The Hound of Tindalos is one of the most evil, annoying monsters to draw while playing Arkham Horror, and so of course I wanted to draw one being adorable. He’s playing fetch the cultist with Cthulhu! I’m sure the one he’s brought is only slightly chewed.
There’s not actually any real description of the hound in the books, it’s only called that because once it gets a time traveler’s scent, it will follow him through space and time like a hunting hound.
My idea is cuter.
Fetch the Cultist, 5″x7″ pen & ink and Copic marker on paper. You can get him in black & white in my Cthulhu Holiday Fun Book, or pick up the original during May’s Floating Gallery.
Join my Art Patron’s list for a chance to see (and buy) each month’s new art before the rest of the world.
