#94 The Ub'thulhu Fez
"Oh, Who is the ancient evil that sleeps beneath the sea, ph'nglui mglw'nafh ~gurggle~coff~ *thud*..." The theme for this year’s H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival was Fun and we decided to embody that in a fez design. The concept for Ub’thulhu first appeared in a sketch I did on a box earlier this year and I received a few requests to put him on a fez, so when I got word that this year’s fest was going to feature a number of cartoons I realized it had to be done. Ub’thulhu is a tribute to Ub Iwerks, the animator, designer and inventor that worked closely with Walt Disney and is considered the first one to draw Mickey Mouse. Ub’thulhu appears on a high profile purple fez, our first production run on purple, and the first batch are up on the website and
ready to order!
The first appearance of what would become Ub’thulhu sketched on one of our boxes at the Phoenix Comic Con.
