Lustre finish prints
are priced slightly higher.
Here’s a little bouillabaisse of Lovecraftian horror and Celtic art. A marriage not made in heaven, obviously, but given the subject - well, that’s just fine.
Cthulhu, known among necromancers as "The Elvis of the Great Old Ones", is possibly not dreaming here - as we hope he continues to do - but its hard to be sure with those pearly eyes. Anyway his tentacles divide and dissolve into bands of Celtic knotwork in a way that pleases me.
The digital painting (Photoshop) was created for a T-shirt design for my newly relaunched Saga Shirts site, where I’m now doing a new line of full color shirt designs, rather than the silkscreened shirts I had there before.
The print version is a high resolution image full of eldritch detail and oddly batrachian textures. It’s the perfect accent, I think, for that eighteenth century basement you’ve got; you know, the one with the odd wooden hatch bolted over what looks like some sort of well. With the scratching noises.
About the Prints
These prints are made to order by deviantPrints, using an archival quality photographic process on Kodak Edge and Kodak Endura papers. They're rated to last over 100 years without fading - though no prints should be left where they'll be baked by direct sunlight. The color fidelity, clarity and paper weight of these prints is far superior to the poster-quality reproductions I also sell here. They're pretty much the bee's knees.
You can order a print in either glossy or matte finish, or in lustre finish for a slightly higher price. This is mainly a matter of personal taste, but I do think that the lustre or glossy prints give you a sharper representation of the original digital image because of their greater contrast.
When you add one of these archival prints to your prints shopping cart it will pop up in a new window. You can keep browsing through these pages and add new items as you go. The shopping cart window will update as you add more items. When you're ready to check out, do so in the cart window and you'll be taken through the ordering process.
These archival quality prints are supplied by a different vendor than my other merchandise, and use a separate shopping cart. You cannot place a single order for both archival prints and, for example, coffee mugs. Archival prints will ship separately from other items.
