Cthulhu Librarian’s Discovery Announcement

Announcing the latest, Lovecraft/Cthulhu inspired Photo Painting

The Librarian's Discovery
Librarian finds a great old one populating her library

 Immediately off the holidays, I have been getting more and more requests to see my artwork. I suppose my work on putting this site together has been taking a bit longer than it should. So, without further pomp and circumstance, I introduce a new print entitled, “The Librarian’s Discovery.”

This piece really drives home my love for both photography, digital painting and the Cthulhu Mythos. I remember reading these stories when I was in High School. They didn’t really scare me, but they were invigorating nonetheless. When I first sketched this composition out on paper, I had no idea it would turn into this. I love the “underdog” status she has, her cute smile and the fact that she shot first. Take that! No madness here. No gibbering mess. She is a librarian with amazing super powers and a refusal to succumb to madness.

The model is professional, freelance, traveling model, Charlie Kristine with whom I worked a few years back for some experimental photography. It is from those shots I found the image of her in a running pose.

The Cthulhu model is actually a reworked photo of a large Cthulhu figure used for some type of Hero Clix game. I haven’t actually played the game. I imagine the Cthulhu figure was righteously expensive. Which is neither here nor there, but the idea about the figure used with a real model in an image was intriguing. I wound up adding more tentacles, altered the eyes, and enhanced the look of him. Also added the bullet blast spray in bright green.

Print sizes vary a lot. Existing prices and sizes reflect the image filling the edges of the print as close as possible, leaving a 1/4″ border to allow for matting and framing. Additional sizes are available. Please ask me if you want a different size.

Stock-ing Stuffers

I’ve posted hundreds of photos up for stock in the last couple weeks. I figured I would sift through my old files and see what I had in the vaults over the holidays. I also rediscovered some lost hard drives back in October and more in November that also had many terabytes of good, quality photo and video content. I knew I would find some, but I genuinely wasn’t prepared for the volume of stock that I found.

In all, I wound up finding over 350 images that met the criteria I was seeking. Beyond that, I narrowed it down to just under 300 after poring over some files that had serious (not feasible for fixing) issues which were not apparent on first review. Only when viewed at 100% was the issue apparent. Now, as a matter of course, I carefully examine each photo at 100% for detailed issues. Continue reading “Stock-ing Stuffers”

I finally did it. I made a store so I can sell my stuff. I’m still working on it and it’s nearly there. I may have to do some CSS, to which I’m not looking forward. I know I must. Onward!

Check the latest. I’m starting with some basic stuff while I figure out what I’m actually selling. If you would like something in particular, just let me know. I may actually have it.

Goodwill likes me. They don’t love me, but they like me. I buy a bunch of stuff there and I donate a bunch of stuff there. It’s a win-win. Most of my most unusual costume finds have been there.

I am obsessed with finding weird costume items for models who will eventually wear them. I don’t necessarily know the models or what they will wear, specifically, but I do know that it will be from these interesting and unusual costume items.

For this project, I decided to create a new world using story as a creative (and motivating) force. In this case, I came up with a short story – really just an origin story leading to the character “Danika.” The name means “Morning Star” in Slavic. Morning Star being the representation of beauty via Venus.
