An ancient horror awakens… and it’s a flavorful summertime treat! Artist Valeriano Fatica recently carved up an amazing sculpture of Cthulhu out of a watermelon. I think he might have been commanded to do this. In his mind. By bad forces. Just a hunch. Once he carves enough of them, he’s going to reanimate them, which is gross because they may be in some people’s stomachs by then, and they will burst forth like something from Alien.
In the time-lapse video below, Valeriano will show you how to carve a Cthulhu watermelon for yourself. Just pay attention to what he does and you can have your very own watermelon of evil. Or simply let the evil guide you. The details are great on this thing, but the tutorial goes a bit fast. You’ll probably want to pause it about a million times, rewind, pause again, rewind and then look over at your creation and wonder why it looks like the Elephant Man. Just keep practicing.
You’ll get there eventually. Even if it takes you like 10 watermelons. Try hard enough, and one day yours can look this good too. Or you can just admire this one and move on with your life.
