San Pedro, California: Cthulhu Mural

Tentacles and eyeballs fill an outdoor wall in honor of horror and sci-fi writer H.P. Lovecraft. Cthulhu was his most famous monster.

W. 7th St., San Pedro, CA
Slightly difficult to find. The mural is on the north side of W. 7th St. just west of its intersection with S. Mesa St. There's a little alley heading north from W. 7th St., next to a parking lot. The mural is at the end of that alley, on a west-facing wall.
