I came up with the idea for this drawing completely organically several years ago on a bike ride through Venice Beach. This was before some of the other versions of this concept that exist out there had ever been released yet, and I promptly returned home and did this illustration without ever seeing a different variation beforehand, which took in the neighborhood of over 60 hours to complete, and is done totally by hand using pen & ink. I have been drawing skulls and octopus for years, so the idea for this came to me in a natural progression. I of course would have to give the ultimate nod to Mr. Lovecraft and his amazing body of work that lies in the same vein, which is where I may have drawn a certain amount of sub-conscious inspiration from. With the level of detail and uniqueness included in the original style of this piece, I wanted to share it with you now.
