Cthulhu Mosaic

Artist Mark Arnold was kind enough to send over some preview shots of his Roman-style Cthulhu Mosaic.  What makes it particularly impressive is that it's a hand-painted resin casting.  He sculpted the master from hundreds of styrene tiles mounted on a wax base.  It's a beautiful piece of work.

Update:  They just happen to be available on Ebay.

The Sorceror of Dunwich

Jason McKittrick returns with a new limited edition piece.  This time it's Wilbur Whately, showing a definite resemblance to his father.  Not as much as his brother, of course.

Cthulhu Fhtagn! Canale/Luong Edition.

This unique take on Cthulhu was designed by Richard Luong and digitally sculpted by Martin Canale.  I really like how it avoids squid-head syndrome by picking up some design elements from aquatic arthropods.  It's intended as a gaming miniature.  I saw mention on the Facebook page of it being in 1/4 scale, which means the final figure will be...what...about 180 meters tall?  I'd pay good money to see that being cast.

Track of the Sasquatch

Jacob Petersson returns to our pages with undeniable proof that Bigfoot is real.  Despite the overwhelming evidence to the contrary, so called "scientists" continue to deny the existence of a thriving Sasquatch population in North America.

The Master of Mad Science

Kenneth Strickfaden is arguably* the most influential designer to ever work in film.  The laboratory equipment he created for the 1931 production of "Frankenstein" almost single-handedly created the "mad science" aesthetic of popular culture.  Some fans had a chance to check out Strickfaden's original props almost a decade ago, before they were sold off at auction.  They've posted a gallery of pictures from that visit to the Universal Monster Army forum.

* I'd say it's a battle between Strickfaden and Ron Cobb.  Cobb's design work on the "Alien" films define the "grungy future" look to this day.
