Day 10 (The Ten Days of Cthulhu) (The Last Day)

The Ten Days of Cthulhu (Day 10)

There was a version with a somewhat telling nosebleed, but it was a little too strong of a mark. I might write more about this series when it has settled a bit, but generally I’m quite happy with the results. Ph’nglui mglw’nafh Cthulhu R’lyeh wgah’nagl fhtagn!

The Ten Days of Cthulhu (Day 9)

And a detail, because these would definitely be printed a lot bigger than they’re appearing on screen:

Day 6 (The Ten Days of Cthulhu)

Ran into some technical issues with this one that the few solutions I came up with just didn’t cut it visually. So there’s sorta two parts, the first, if I were to use a singular image, would be the one I’d select. The second could stand on its own as a separate work in the series, or perhaps as part of a diptych.

The Ten Days of Cthulhu (Day 6 II)

And just to see how they work together:

Update: Managed a stitch-together of the two parts that’s remotely acceptable, but I’m undecided which I like better.

…. aaaand the line is crossed, the shit hits the fan, and the borders start to fall apart.

Day 2 (The Ten Days of Cthulhu)

Well more appropriately, night 2, I guess these should be “the ten nights of Cthulhu”

The Ten Days of Cthulhu (Day 2)

The bright blue window behind me belongs to a dude working in his garage; we’re wondering how many nights before he comes over and asks what’s going on.

My bro seems hellbent on being as frightening as possible – as frightening as one can be holding a plush Cthulhu. Not gonna write a whole lot about these at this point, I sorta wanna see how the series plays out over the next week.

The Beach (The Pilgrimage of Memory)

New work; it’ll be a touch on the long side, 140″x36″, and that could be approaching … difficult, hanging-wise.  I am open to suggestions. I wonder if you can get glass that long.

Something of a start of an exploration of memories that don’t exist, through a pilgrimage to somehow make them exist. The series will expand/extend from Crossroads to a fair degree.

Also:

The Ten Days of Cthulhu (Day 1)

Just a working title, will probably change if the next sets hammer themselves into some kind of series. Bit of a flexible exploration of a single space, over a fixed duration, colliding two separate conceptual histories I like to play with – the Hoodoo crossroads ritual, and H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu mythos. Complete with plush Cthulhu effigy.
