I started drawing an octopus every day since October of 2010 - over 700 and counting! Check out the archive view for the full effect. I haven't been updating as much recently but please stay tuned for more sporadic cephalopods!

You can also find prints and originals of my pieces on etsy.

Apologies, dear readers - I’ve done a number of octopuses in recent days that I haven’t been terrible happy with. I’ll be cleaning them up and hopefully posting them soon. In the meantime, here’s a picture from the wedding of me with a very special guest :)
