an octopus

8"x8", black ink on paper

a friend of mine asked me to draw this octopus. she is planning on turning it into a tattoo. i can't take the credit for it, as she gave me pictures to work from. but, i think it's an interesting image and had fun creating it. so, i thought i'd give it a post! my favorite parts are the multi-circular suction cups (or whatever they might be called).

This is a beautiful drawing. I like the details in the suction cups, the lines give it life. Now off to your Etsy store.

First, you had me at this terrific name for the blog!! What a hoot! I love it. What a breathe of fresh air you are with your wonderful work! It's fresh, creative energy that it so needed and welcomed. I really like what you create. The cows, birds and everything. You are an artist to truly watch and I wish you much creativity and happiness in your work. I expect your Etsy store to be sold out soon! he he he.
