Cthulhu Pirate

Getting Started - August 23rd

I honestly have no idea if I'm doing this right, but this is the only place I can think to "share" my inspiration board, so here's think link:

I started out with some general pics, and then at the end I looked for some Cthulhu-related work. For my project, I'd like to do a Cthulhu Pirate. Last year, I was doodling at night, and a few mistakes I made sort of led the drawing into becoming a Cthulhu Pirate. I ended up leaving it on my husband's steering wheel so he'd find it when he drove to work. I'll try to dig up a scan of the image.

My husband and I have since separated, but we're still best friends. We don't live near each other anymore, so this year, for his birthday, I'm pitching in for a ticket to fly him here to see me and his family. Because of this, I don't have any money to buy him a present on the actual day, so I'd like to do another Cthulhu PIrate drawing-- more than just a doodle this time.

I also would really love to write and illustrate my own children's books one day. I have a few manuscripts waiting in the wings, and I've been working for the past few years to get my art skills up to snuff-- though not as much as I should. Hopefully, this class will give me the structure to learn some more. Maybe this is me starting on the path to my dreams coming true. Can't hurt, right?
