Blair, Gug, Great Cthulhu (1999)

On the left side of the page is the head of a Blair as it ages. The Blair are huge space going wormlike aliens with a natural lifespan of thousands of years. In their youth the Blair are light blue, smooth and sort of chubby, almost cute. As they mature their color darkens to nearly black, their skin becomes leathery and their bodies develop corners and angles making them look rather dragonish.

On the right side, at the top, is a sketch of the head of a Gug.

Under that is a version of Cthulhu inspired by the Stephen Hickman sculpture. Hickman’s statue is one of my favorite depictions of the Great Old One. It’s not how I would draw the Big C myself these days but I’d certainly love to have one of the statues.
