Magna Mater Maris Special Edition

I’m once again thrilled to be creating a limited edition woodcut print for the H.P. Lovecraft Film Festival. You can purchase it as part of their Kickstarter and help make the Festival amazing! The woodcut prints I create for the HPLFF are typically limited to just enough for everyone who ordered one, plus a couple extras in case of accidental loss. Although I do sometimes print second editions, supporting the festival is the only way to definitely get your hands on a signed and numbered first edition.

Since the Festival this year is Innsmouth themed, and I’ve already created a Dagon, I’m creating an icon of his counterpart, Mother Hydra. I’ve used the double tailed mermaid form since it is typically associated with the more dangerous forms of mermaids, and am creating a symbolic border using the vesica pisces shape.

Carving has just begun so I’ll be posting progress photos regularly. Enjoy!
