elder squid


Nothing to see here, folks! Just your everyday average gigantic dead sea monster washing ashore in Indonesia, turning the water red with its icor and reminding us of the vast unknowable depths that surround us filled with living nightmares - some of which are apparently bigger than this thing because it looks like it lost a fight. Anyway, have fun at the beach!

Leviathan 2014 Nikol King

Been working on this piece the last week or so and it is based on some ideas I’ve been messing around with for awhile in my sketchbook. The ship was a pain to get to be exactly how I wanted it, but once I got it in place everything came along swimmingly (heh heh). Pen and ink and colored digitally.

Squiddles Fact #7

In season six episode 11, the Elder Squid was supposed to peacefully pass away off screen (the writers felt his role in the show had diminished to pointlessness). However, when this happened, fans of the show angrily called and wrote in to the studio until there was no other choice but to get rid of it. The episode was eventually pulled off the air and rewritten.
