It's obvious that you've been heavily influenced by Alien/Giger from what I can see on your website. You have made some really nice statues and prints. I might even order that "Red" print from you. I really like it.

I think you did an excellent job on this Cthulhu bust. You seemed to perfectly blend the alien element with that of a mythological sea creature, which are the two aspects I associate Cthulhu with.

I do like the paint app quite a bit, but Cthulhu should always be some form of green in my eyes.

You're not the first one to mention that about Cthulhu's eyes. Let's just say I had to stick to my gut this time.

Beksinski and Giger are huge influences to my work.

I'm excited to share that we have passed 50% of our Kickstarter goal with 3 more weeks left on our campaign! In the coming weeks, I'll continue to actively promote the Kickstarter.

I'll also be showcasing the production prototype at Monsterpalooza, April 7th - 9th at Pasadena Convetion Center, table #249. If you're attending the show, be sure to drop by and check out the bust in person.

Here's a hi-res image gallery of the bust for you pixel peepers.

This is a super cool bust. I always thought people were nuts for getting busts, then I saw this. I want it because it looks like a mind flayer!!! I just wish it was actual size.

Actual size of Cthulhu?! that would be ginormous! Unless you meant human head size but it wouldn't be affordable for most folks.
