Still working on making weird little shrines, but somehow I migrated from "Day of the Dead" to...err...happy elder god. (It made sense in my head!) Great Cthulhu can be happy if he wants to be. I'm not gonna tell him otherwise.

I am enjoying these weird little character paintings way too much...

This painting will go in one of the little shrines, but I figured I'd scan it before construction, because it'd make a better print in this form than it would once I've built the little structure around it.

Cthulhu is about 3 x 4.5 or thereabouts. 8 x 10 prints are available for $10 plus $5 shipping in the US--send a note or visit [link] for details!

I (vaguely) remember when I first saw this picture a couple of years ago; I was never able to look at Lovecraft the same way again.

So... My friend got me one of the pins of these at your booth at Anthrocon, and I've already thanked him a bajillion times, so I figured I'd thank you for making this so damn adorable. It's also a GREAT conversation starter.

"Hey Rachel, what's that pin on your purse for?"

"It's a BAG. And it's a pin of Cthulhu from one of my favorite artists, Ursula Vernon! Simply LOOKING at his giant tentacle-dragon form drives mortal men INSANE."

"That's... nice?"

"She also draws fruit!"

Thank you! May I be there next year to meet you in person...
