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.

Mike Regan was born and raised in Southern California, he discovered a passion for horror films, monsters and subsequently make up effects at an early age and started working for in the industry for Dave (A Nightmare on Elm St) Miller when he was just 19 and has since then worked for some industry's top fx designers and companies including KNB FX, Spectral Motion and Rick Baker

Tunnicliffe is a transplant from the United Kingdom having worked at Pinewood Studios for Image (Hellraiser) Animation. He came to the USA in 94 and formed his own company Two Hours in the Dark Inc four years later and has since designed fx on over 45 feature films working on such horror franchises as Candyman, Hellraiser, Halloween, Mimic, Dracula, Scream, Blade and Exorcist as well as projects such as Sleepy Hollow, Gone Girl, and 22 Jump Street.

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!
