Well, I'd primarily use them for my 404 error page, where a barrel of such things is mentioned.

But I suspect that if one had an actual barrel of shoggoths, one would do exactly the same thing that one does with a barrel of monkeys, except more eldritch.

Incidentally, I kept running into those darn shoggoths when reading through your "year looking for a priestly vocation" journal.

I am agile and managed to get on my way without becoming lunch, but I do believe they may still feel a tad provoked.

It may be wise to prostrate myself before fluffcthulhu in the hopes of getting Him to eat me first. Might as well go higher up the food chain if one must be consumed.

I'd be happy to draw you a barrel of nearly anything, but I think my talents lie more in line with stick figure cartoons in the spirit of XKCD.

So, if you want a stick figure drawing of a barrel of shoggoths, it's so totally yours.

(anything to keep from perusing the Belgian Polar Platform website!)

This may be too close to exactly a modicum of talent but is this what you're looking for?

Quite, something just like that! I should hold a contest.

What medium did you happen to use? Your technique is exquisite.

(And, should this be the only representation, I'm totally using it. Did you make it so that I may properly credit you?)

Thanks for the link. I didn't realize that there was a musical "Shoggoth on the Roof."

*grins* Of course. You should see all the interesting and like items available on the internet :)

I tell ya, if you've got a passion for tentacles and Russian Judaism, the internet is the place to find your niche.

Oddly enough, I've met the producers of the "Shoggoth on the Roof" documentary film (they're with Theatre Banshee here in LA).

Too bad you didn't post this a couple of days sooner- I could have drawn something in all the time I've been sitting in the lobby of West waiting for the next person to talk to me.

On the other hand.... I will be spending a number of hours hanging out in the airport & on plans tomorrow...
