 “Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn. In his house at R'lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.” - H.P. Lovecraft

Hello! I'm an artist/illustrator from Houston,TX who primarily draws monsters, wizards, goblins, and all kinds of other weird fantasy creatures that pop into my head! I, like many others, have been a huge H.P. Lovecraft fan since I first ever discovered his universe! So now I've decided to illustrate and produce a coin inspired by the one and only, Cthulhu!!!

The front of the coin shows Cthulhu illustrated by myself, and the back shows the infamous Necronomicon symbol, also known as the "Sigil of the Gateway" from the Cthulhu Mythos! Both sides bordered with the words “Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn. In his house at R'lyeh dead Cthulhu waits dreaming.” which cultists would chant in hopes that Cthulhu would awaken and return to wreak havoc!

The coins feature raised text and borders with the artwork recessed in the middle to make it pop!

These coins will be 1.5 inches in diameter (the size of a silver dollar coin!) with about 2 millimeters width and weigh about an ounce each so they'll feel nice and heavy! They'll be made using an antique gold with a distressed surface to add an old, ancient, aged effect too!

Risks and challenges

Although this is my first coin I've made, I've been making all kinds of products via my artwork for years now and am very punctual when it comes to turnaround times. All of the artwork is finished, everything is ready for production, so I don't foresee any risks besides meeting the goal. So lets do it!!
