Snow Cthulhu watercolor by Amy Crook

SnowCthulhu by Amy Crook

It’s a snowman! It’s Cthulhu! It’s… SnowCthulhu!

Tiny, delicate pen work makes up the stick tentacles, arms and wings. This demanded careful, slightly messy watercolors to paint in the sticks and blue snowy shadows on him. His coal-black eyes have little hints of blue and purple in them just like real coal. Basically, he’s just awesome.

He may or may not become a holiday card this year, but he’ll definitely star in next year’s lineup. I was just feeling seasonal! And, you know, Lovecraftian. Because Christmas and unspeakable horrors just go together.

SnowCthulhu, 7″x5″ pen & ink and watercolor on paper.
