Don't buy a Puppy - Get a 'Cycloptopus!'
'CYCLOPTOPUS' is a brand new piece of custom made, original 'genre' sculpted art from movie make up fx artist Mike Regan, hand painted by fx designer Gary J. Tunnicliffe and inspired by the works of H.P. Lovecraft, Cephalopods (that's Octopi to you and me!) and MONSTERS everywhere!
Screams of Lovecraft - Specimen One 'Cycloptopus' was created as the part of an ongoing art project inspired by a love of all things Cthulu and Bizarre Creatures from the realms beyond.
Each piece is ran in a transluscent resin and hand painted by fx designer Gary J. Tunnicliffe and can be wall mounted or displayed flat and comes signed and numbered and with a special Certifiicate of Authenticity signed by both artists.

Risks and challenges
To be honest...unless we get a thousand backers and we have to chain Tunnicliffe to a desk (again) to paint them all we shouldn't have any problems, as movie fx artists were used to manufacturing to a deadline and maintaining quality!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
