KRAKEN DANGER

I've finished messing around with this now. The commenters have spoken and heavier paper/smaller size/signed and numbered have won out.



I can't remember the exact moment that I decided the picture needed a giant ghost kraken emerging through the mist, but I like what happened there.

i love this one, although i did like her larger eyes in the previous version. and i favour the limited print approach as well. i need to do one of those this autumn!

i havent bought a print from you yet, and i was waffling on this until i check your blog and bam, ghost-kraken! that's cinched it. i dont care if it's a cheapo poster or a limited edition laser print or *what*. i'm getting one. stick me on the preorder list post-haste.

Love the new addition to this. "There's always a bigger fish", er, ghost-kraken type thing. I imagine in the natural scheme of things, that behind the ghost-kraken type thing there is Shelley with a baseball bat.

I like it! ^_^

The larger eyes did look good but I looked at them with a fierce critical gaze and they weren't really Esther eyes. I'm glad people like this print, I'm going to go into town tomorrow and prod paper samples in a slightly prurient way.

Bryan, get on that print! It's what the world needs now (in addition to love sweet love).

John, I hope this and the other poster (or at least one) will be around until Christmas. Or my birthday (11 days after Christmas).

John A said...

Yes, plenty left Emilyruth.

Oh, quite nice. Took me a moment afore I realized that there was, indeed, an ethereal prescence behind the devilfish. And I agree that the smaller eyes seem better suited to Esther by comparison... they struck me as if they'd be a touch more at home on one of Brian Carroll's characters before (not that that's bad, but rather not right). Nice work.

That... is beautiful.

I realise this might not get the popular vote, but personally I think this would make rather spiffy duvet cover ...

... but that could just be me.

Perdy, Esther's a favourite of mine, but I really hope those aren't skinny-leg jeans she's wearing. Oooh, they make my jam boil with pure, unsuppressed rage, them things and their connotations! Eeeevil!
Otherwise t'is nice, I need to get my hands on some moichandice soon, and Esther is a favourite of mine. Nice work. =)
