Very special Wurzeltod® friend Alex CF is back from touring with his countless bands and being an incredibly possessed tentacled mastermind unstoppable creative force, he has some fantastic things lined up for you.

First up is the joyous announcement of his 2nd London solo show which will be opening this Thursday, August 9, 6.30 PM (RSVP HERE!), at the best location I could possibly imagine for his creatures, namely the veritable Old Operating Theatre located in the time capsule roof space of the Baroque St. Thomas’ Church. It’s one of the oldest surviving operating theatres on earth and to have it filled with Alex‘s cryptozoological specimens is an absolute curatorial masterstroke.

So if you’re in London in August, I’d say FUCK THE OLYMPICS! and go climb the beautiful old spiral staircase to the Old Operating Theatre to be enchanted by Alex‘s phantasmagorical chimerae.

You can find all the details for the show below. Tell your friends about it.

In other news that would make the Elder Gods jealous, Alex has just released an entirely hand-cast, hand-painted action figure of the dark lord, Monsieur H. P., himself.

Limited to 50 figures only, Lovecraft comes with a comic, a shirt and a screen print, all created by Alex, in a black magnetic sealed box.

You can see all the details here (where you can also see images of the figures in production). To order directly, please click here.
