Just taking a break from the tits for a moment. This is the sort of stuff I used to do. This is probably my favourite thing I've done for a while.
In December I was listening to Metallica's "Thing that should not be" and decided to look up the short story it was based on. For those that don't know, that story is:
The Call of Cthulhu by H.P. Lovecraft.
Now I'm not a fan of sci-fi but this story was great and really got my mind going. It's completely chilling. But I liked how there were cults dedicated to this entity and thought I'd do a picture. Cthulhu will save us all.
*By the way, no offence intended to any of my Christian watchers. I wanted to juxtapose this ultimate horror with a figure seen as the ultimate good.
