Another design idea that I don't think panned out. I was thinking a Cthulhu design for the brass etching would be cool. (I just got e-mail saying the brass just shipped. Ten 3"x4.5" sheets just the right size for going on the front of a Moleskine.) I looked at some other Cthulhu images and there were some consistent themes. A bulbous head. Bulbous eyes. Tentacles. And in about half of the images the tentacles come from a vertically slit mouth with pointy teeth. I think that last bit was a mistake for me to follow. The mouth makes this look more like an ant head with tentacles.
But, anyway, here is a first draft. Remember it has to be a pure b&w, no shades of grey. Much like if I was doing a stamp or a wood cut.
And I have to confess, the skull is from a font. I wish I could draw that well.
