#12 - The Call of Cthulhu: Yog Sothoth
According to the literature, Yog-Sothoth is a gate. An evil, living gate. For some reason, Yog-Sothoth is described as having the appearance of bubbles. That image wasn't flying with me, so I came up with my own concept.
After stamping the image on thick, plain paper, I colored with Prismacolors and fussy-cut, including the mouth, giving me a 'frame' or gate opening. I then went through my old National Geographics and cut out dark and eerie images... skulls, fire, men in gas masks, intestines... and mounted them behind the open mouth. I added a green bar on the bottom of the card, to give the appearance if his claws grabbing and glued down the Yog-Sothoth image.
This was my favorite of the Cthulhu mythos trio.
