I’m not sure I’d want this hung on my anything — tree, house, ankle… It looks unpleasantly gooey and bitey. Very bitey.

Five 5, artist trading card by Amy Crook

Five 5 by Amy Crook

This paper completely absorbed the water before any of the salt could even dissolve, making mysterious swirls of ink surrounding each spiral. I went back in and created the crosshatched figure, and once it was most of the way done, I turned it on the side and found that it looked rather like a creepy, Lovecraftian figure. I used water to blur the ink and add significant shape to the shoggoth, the pattern of dots turning the fifth spiral into a part of the figure like an eye on a stalk.

Five 5, 3.5″x2.5″ mixed media on paper, nfs (but available for trading!).

I find it interesting how all the ink on this piece, except for the signature, is blurred and softened,  giving the whole piece has a creepy, surreal feeling. Happy Halloween season!

If you’re an artist who makes ATCs of your own, and are coveting this one, let me know!

Weeble Cthulhu

Weeble Cthulhu by Amy Crook

Weeble Cthulhu by Amy Crook

As promised, I’m reposting Weeble Cthulhu from earlier this year so he’s hiding in amongst my daily art for those seeking out my (so far rather small) series of Lovecraftian weebles. He’s got his pet Shoggoth with him with his bowl of cultist snacks and everything.

I made a greeting card out of him for Valentine’s Day that said, “Cthulhu wanted to give you a heart, but they were all too small and squishy.” They sold so well I took off the “Happy Valentine’s Day” and have left them up on the shop ever since.

Weeble Cthulhu, 4″x6″ pen and ink and Copic markers on a watercolor postcard.
