I almost, almost want this design on my body, but...My phobia of spiders is stopping me (I LOVE Jellyfish though...I found a jellyfish piece on here and contacted the artist to see if I could use it. But this, this is so cool. I just...want it but don't. GUH.

Eep! I've just realized my own two (mild) phobias!

Thanks for sharing, ensoul. You really captured the strange scariness that is a Lovecraftian monster.

Labradors are the fluffiest, friendliest most ridiculously cute dogs though. How can you be afraid of labs? And it is ONLY Labradors. She's fine with other dogs

An original depiction of the good ol' Shoggy much in contrast with the popular "meaty biomass" version. This one is much more scary and intimidating. Good work!

shudders...spooky lil delights... I have had a nightmare once You would scream your head off in these; Horrific shapeless monstrosities erupt from all planes of reference and they call to me in dead tongues wearing the faces of old friends that bathe in the shadows. I am almost always one of the monsters too or a cautionary observer unable to call out or help the endangered blank bodies that cower in fear.
