Help me create this gorgeous, romantic vision in time to be shipped in time for Valentines Day!

I dream of creating a new Cthulhu for my dessert Cthulhu series. The most recent, addition, Absinthe Cthulhu also tempts me to create alcoholic drink versions for the series.  

The sketches never do my pieces justice - I envision a strawberry blonde, with a low cut dress in the back. Her dress spills around and comes up around her like champagne being poured. Of course there are plenty of tentacles there to celebrate! This piece will have a beautiful light feel, and will have strawberries! The perfect valentines gift!The sketches never do my pieces justice - I envision a strawberry blonde, with a low cut dress in the back.

Kickstarter has been very good to me. Among my previous Eight (8) Kickstarter successes are three art books and a Triptych in this same series.

When choosing which Cthulhu Pinup to create next, I was torn. Inspiration came like a popping cork! Champagne Cthulhu will the the ultimate in a romantic, beautiful touch. Subtle, bubbly, and with strawberries too.

With your help, I can create this masterpiece, and ship her in time to arrive before Valentines day! But time is short - so I am running a short kickstarter on this one. I will be posting updates as I work on her!

Launching New Years Eve - Arriving Valentines day! Help me bring her to life!! 

I need your help to make her a reality! After you back, be sure to share the link with others - and I will create, with your help, the most lovely, sensual, romantic Cthulhu yet!

I haven't posted much here lately because I've been completely swamped with work to be published.

But, I just got permission to post some of my new tarot deck! So watch here for more.

Once again, I will be at my regular Booth 4820 - NOT in artist alley, but two or three aisles over in the Fantasy Illustrator section.

Hope to see you there!

I wil once again be in Orlando for MegaCon this weekend. 

I'm pretty sure my tables are again Pink 1&2, but check the book to be certain.

MegaCon used to be my home show - but now that I live in Seattle, it's more challenging to make the trip. So my art is limited this year to what I could bring and ship.

I have a very limited number of limited editions - but they are all spectacular (fans words - not mine).

See you there!

While I'm still in love with my Cthulhu series, and my Women Inspired by Birds series is extremely popular and in progress, a private collector has commissioned me for a completely new series asking for my interpretation of historical and mythological princesses.

This is a WIP (work in progress) of Sleeping Beauty. I hope you enjoy it.

Our hearts and thoughts are with the victims and their families - and for all artists everywhere facing violent censorship.

Happy New Year!

That's pretty much it. I'm so busy right now - this is all I can post.

I have two calendars for 2015 on sale right now through my Amazon store:…

Also, all of my books are $10 off.

I need to say thank you to all of my collectors and fans for backing my 8th Kickstarter campaign.

"Crane" is the third in my series of Women Inspired by Birds after "Swan" and then "Raven".

I will be posting progress shots on my Facebook page and (less frequently) DeviantArt and Tumblr.


My New Kickstarter is live!

This time she is the Crane Queen - specifically the Red Crowned Crane which is popularly called the Japanese Crane (but lives throughout Asia).

Crane - Sketch for my 3rd Kickstarter Only Series by echo-x

The previous Kickstarter Only pieces were:

Swan and Raven

i just returned from a tour across the country goingo to San Diego for Comic Con International, then Indianapolis for GenCon and finally Atlanta for DragonCon.

As usual, the shows and fans were amazing - but this year had to have topped them all. From the excitement of everything going on around us, to the massive fun we had with collectors, to the wonderful models and model shoots, to the incredible invitations to do personal appearances and signings, and to the wonderful clients who came out to meet me in person - this was absolutely the best season ever.

Thank you everyone - and if you missed me, keeping following because I still have a few appearance left this fall in the Pacific Northwest.


This year will mark my 5th year at San Diego Comic Con.

My booth is 4820 in the Fantasy Artists section. 

Come see my books, 2015 calendars, and of course tons of art prints!

I've been posting my "There's No Place Like Home" is thirds as each main figure was done - but now it's complete. 

Enjoy, favorite, and share. Thank you! Prints may be purchased from:

There's No Place Like Home (complete) by echo-x

Despite my page saying "11" or "12" years a member, I really only started posting 4 years ago.

Thank you all so much for the love.

Not bad for an artist with 99% original art.


My art will be hanging at NorWesCon 37 this weekend in SeaTac! Prints will also be available.

The 4-day event is being held at:

DoubleTree by Hilton Seattle Airport
18740 International Blvd
SeaTac, Washington

You're welcome. :)
Booth: Red 8 & 9
Convention: MEGACON
Location: Orlando Convention Center in Orlando, Florida
When: March 21-23, 2014

I used to live in Florida, and MegaCon was my home show. However, when i moved to Seattle in 2012, I was forced to miss last year's convention.

This will be my return to MegaCon with TONS of art I've never brought there before. Everything from new Cthulhu art, Bridgette the Yarn Zombie, lots of new game art for projects like Shadowrun and MAGE. I'll also be bringing some unique items and original art and...


You'll have to be there to see it. :)


My Calendars were successfully funded and should be in my hands in time for this Spring and Summer convention season.

I will also post them on my website when they are ready. :)


Echo Chernik Calendars

Every year I receive requests for calendars.  We would love to make it happen this year, but time to do it is running short! We need to print our 2015 calendar now in time for the Summer convention season.  

The question is - do I do a calendar of my Art Nouveau Goddesses OR do I do one of my Shadowrun and gaming art? 
JUST FOR YOU - my fans - I am doing BOTH!

I've already been completely funded for them - but their are some amazing rewards you can only get through this Kickstarter campaign - including some incredible rewards for reaching stretch goals of higher levels of funding.

Check them out now:


Echo Chernik's "Raven Queen" Kickstarter campaign raised over $21,000 with backers being the ONLY ones to receive prints or even the original finished work.

"Raven Queen" is the 2nd in the series and the campaign ended on February 15 with over 200 backers receiving prints. The first in the series "Swan Queen" (below) closed in November with over 150 backers raising over $25,000 including the Original given to one lucky backer for a $10,000 pledge.

Now that "Raven Queen" is funded, Echo will be working on the piece live for ONLY her Kickstarter backers - so they can watch the masterpiece unfold.

With raising over $20,000 - Echo has pledged to create a tutorial for her collectors and fans. Kickstarter backers will automatically receive a copy of - or access to - this tutorial. Depending on the final format, the tutorial may be published or otherwise available for purchase.
