Can you spell that?
Hi folks, I drew this comic so that’s why it’s of uh… dubious artistic quality. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry.
Cxaxukluth is, in the Mythos at least, Azathoth’s androgynous offspring, a being locked out of reality until it is summoned. It Cthulhu Slipper’s universe it’s…I don’t know what it is yet. You’ll probably know before I do.
I’ve got one week left to go before my current book draft is due so that’s all I can think about now (my anxiety is making a kind of high pitched whining sound in my ear that I can hear even in the presence of other noise. That’s normal right?).
Like all times in my life when I’m super busy I for some reason felt the need to add more to my plate so I’ll be drawing the next couple of strips. In some ways it’s good to have a second project to go to when my brain needs a break, and even though I’m not good at cartooning it is fun. Now all I need is someone to give me a Cintiq and enough money that I can do nothing but practice for the next year.
A thought I have had is that (assuming I get better) is that perhaps Natalie could draw one comic per week and I could do a second comic. What do you think? You’d get two comics per week but one of them would look like it was drawn while I was falling down a flight of stairs. Let me know in the comic.
This weeks Lovecraftain book recommendation is Lovecraft’s Monsters edited by Ellen Datlow. There’s a story in there by Neil Gaiman, although I should say Elizabeth Bear’s story Inelastic Collisions was my favourite.
Until next week, may your foes be mocked by their own teeth.
