I follow a very cool Instagram account by the nameĀ of OctoNation, and account that is all about octopi art and media. They posted a very cool sculpture of an octopus that really highlighted the eyes, and it inspired me to draw this.

I wanted to use the wash as a background element so the stark contrast would really foreground the octopus. The wash also makes an appropriate background for the octopus, who is able to squirt ink.


Waves and Me

I’ve been playing with ink wash a lot lately, so I wanted to get back to some highhhhhh value. This is a picture of me getting caught in the waves at Kirby Cove in the Marin Headlands.ocean
