It’s a quick fly-by post from me today as I am just home briefly from work before heading out to volunteer at my sons’ school. I am pleased to report, however, that despite the hectic schedule today and still slowly recovering from my illness, I managed to produce today’s Inktober drawing. I actually cannot believe I have managed to keep this going despite everything I have been juggling. I am so glad I took the plunge to participate this year. I turned to the Drawlloween prompt again today and it was “Call of C’Thursday”. It is so funny to me that, despite the fact I don’t particularly have any fondness for the writings of Lovecraft, I seem to draw and paint Cthulhu frequently. I painted one twice in my altered book last year and recently I shared that my 9 year old made a Sock Cthulhu for one of his brothers. Apparently the Pict family cannot get enough of Cthulhu. (I didn’t erase my pencil sketch marks before taking the photo with my phone. Oops.)
Love the swirly beardlike tentacles.
Thank you. I wanted those to be a focal point so I’m glad that worked.
I’ve never read Lovecraft, despite being assured once that my writing style is like his (!) How do you pronounce Cthulhu?
Truly, I’m not sure. There are videos on YouTube that show it being pronounced many and various ways (e.g. https://youtu.be/Gx0vDqsasek) but in my house we pronounce Cthulhu as Kuh-Thoo-Loo whether it’s correct or Lovecraft’s intention or not.
Thank you – that helps me feel a little less dense! I’ll follow up your link later and see what else I can become educated about 🙂
Oh, her turned out great! You are so talented to do these creatures and I can see they bring you so much pleasure. That’s great!
Thank you very much! 😀
