Why there will be no more octopus tentacles in my work



I'm tired of everyone flooding the Lovecraft groups with every stinking image of an octopus the find and proclaiming it Lovecraftian. There will still be tentacles, just no suckers or such. I know, small distinction.

That said, you wouldn't believe the crap I take on my interpretations of Lovecraftian creatures. Lovecraft was pretty vague in many of his descriptions and even allowed that several of his creations had many forms. One interpenetration is really no better than any other.However, the people who complain the most are angry because I am not drawing what they see the creature as.

Simple, pick up a pen and draw it. Yea, your true Ni-Go is now out in the world!

Shesh, can't we all just enjoy each the work?
