Todd Slater Ring of Fire & Cthulhu Prints

Todd Slater released some more prints online that he released last month at MondoCon.

The creature featured in the print is Todd's imagining of the H.P. Lovecraft character Cthulhu.  Metallica has an real affinity for Lovecraftian horror and the imagery ended up being a fit.  Says Todd "This one in particular felt like my best work in blending the hard edged style I'm known for with a stippled effect I've been working on for a several years now."

Also while you're on Todd's site check out his Escher's Relativity prints. This was printed with his friends at Studio On Fire using etched copper plates and heated foils. It's the same process used on his Strange Attraction prints.  The last few he did with them have used 3 plates but he bumped the color up for this one to 5. Acccording to Todd "The prints look incredibly dynamic in person; I'm excited for you all to see these. The foils have a reflective/mirrored quality that change under different lighting setups... if you view the chameleon at certain angles the paper will lighten making the chameleon appear inverted, and nearly invisible."

Head over to to pick them up. Also Todd said if you live in the States his plan is to get these out and in your homes before Christmas.
