Halloween is just around the corner so I thought I'd give you a look at the new poster I did for the star. If you've been there in the past week then you've probably seen it, if you haven't then here it is.

This handsome fella is based on H. P. Lovecraft's Cthulhu, a vast and loathsome creature from beyond the stars who lurks beneath the ocean in the sunken city of R'lyeh. In "The Call of Cthulhu" Lovecraft describes how a "pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque scaly body with rudimentary wings"..."a monster of vaguely anthropoid outline, but with an octopus-like head whose face was a mass of feelers" and to give an idea of its monsterous size uses the phrase "a mountain walked or stumbled". The guy's got a way with words. If you haven't read any then I definitely recommend that you get on it. And yeah, that's you in his hand.
