OCTOBER 2014 COLOR OF THE MONTH – The 2nd of twelve shades in the “Mythical Monsters” year theme!
This month’s color is CTHULHU, of author H.P. Lovecraft’s creation. Most modern depictions of Cthulhu are very bright green, often with red eyes. I wanted to create a wearable color, so I opted for a deep mauved red/chestnut with a strong green/aqua duo chrome and brilliant green sparks! SHOP
“The Thing cannot be described – there is no language for such abysms of shrieking and immemorial lunacy, such eldritch contradictions of all matter, force, and cosmic order. A mountain walked or stumbled. If I say that my somewhat extravagant imagination yielded simultaneous pictures of an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature, I shall not be unfaithful to the spirit of the thing. A pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque and scaly body with rudimentary wings; but it was the general outline of the whole which made it most shockingly frightful.”
― H.P. Lovecraft, The Call of Cthulhu
