Cthulhu portraits

I have made several felt Cthulhu portraits in the last few years. I suspect I’ll make more as time goes on. The first, and smallest, was a birthday present for Nick, the second is still hanging about creepily waiting for a home and the third was a special request from a friend.

I feel very lucky to have worked as the Production Designer on this film, set on location at the historic Snoqualmie Train Depot and filmed in part on a working steam engine. The beautiful location made it easy to create a beautiful film. …
