Dreamer in the Deep

Beware when Cthulu awakes.

That is not dead which can eternal lie, 
And with strange aeons even death may die. 

Bit of a different one for you this time around. I like doodling monsters (don't we all!) and when I had this guy looking out from my sketchpad I knew I had to make something a bit more polished from it. Cthulu is one of those characters that is pretty loosely described, which allows you to go completely mad and draw pretty much whatever you like. So after a lot of scribbling and shading I managed to turn a simple tentacled dude into this rather fetching design. It was great fun just getting into all the little details and making sure all that hatching was working nicely.

If you would like a tasteful monster adorning your stuff you can get hold of it from Redbubble, Society6 and even Zazzle. All the details are on the Doodle Dojo Store.

Chunky Puke Hoops

Chunk's Chunky Puke Hoops, the best way to start your day!
Chunk's confessions was one of my favourite parts of the Goonies. The bit where he tells the Fratelli's all about how he made some fake puke still makes me laugh now. There's a bit of a thing in the T-shirt world for making fake cereal packet designs as well, so while mulling these things over this design came at me. What would a cereal endorsed by Chunk be like? Well obviously it would have to be chunky, and if it looked like fake puke that would be even better. Real carrot chunks? Well they are always in there right? And there you have it, Chunk's Chunky Puke Hoops a healthy tasty breakfast.

Available at Redbubble and Society6 right now on T-shirts, stickers, iPhone cases, prints and posters. Check out the Doodle Dojo Site for all the info and links.

Bullet Time Bill

He is 'The One'
Do you believe that my being stronger or faster has anything to do with my muscles in this place? Do you think those are mushrooms eating now?

Bullet Bill is one of the (many) horrible, inexorable, really annoying enemies in Mario Bros. While you try and repeatedly dodge them, die and restart it makes you wonder if there is a better way. That's when it struck me that Neo had a much better way. If there is anyone who should be an equal to Neo when it comes to manipulating a computer simulated world, it really has to be Mario. He has been through just about every type of game you can think of by now. The plucky plumber really should have learned some ways to cheat the system. And while he's at it, you think he would get a better look going on!

Available from Redbubble and Society6 on all kinds of nice stuff. Check out the Doodle Dojo Store for more info.
