Octo-ber 21

Trying to get the hang of inking with a brush. It's hard...

And here is another special guest drawing for Octo-ber, drawn by the daughter of an old co-worker. Very cool! I love that the octopus is an artist and is using watercolors. I wish i had thought of that!

Octo-ber 09


This one is very small...only 1x1 in. I don't don't why but i love working small.

This made me realize it might be fun to make some custom game pieces, so i slapped it on a little game piece holder (from 1313 Dead End Drive)

And as for the extra two well...he's a special octopus...or would it be dekapus then?

Here are TWO bonus Octo-ber entries courtesy of my two cool nephews. The first is Jo's second entry in the series. It's an army octopus (the box is what he is saying). Above him are his guns and remaining ammo (he's a big Metroid fan so he took it from that:) He obviously knows how many legs an octopus has better than i do.

The second is Cal's first entry for Octo-ber. I might have to stop posting mine if these two keep making their's so much cooler...

Octo-ber 07

"Born in 1885, Victor Gilliatt was diagnosed with a extremely rare case of Cephalopodia (tentacles of the face). At the age of eight, he ran away and joined a traveling sideshow where for the next thirty-two years of his life he performed around the world as the “Octopus Man.”

While performing in Minsk he received a telegram stating that his father had died. Tired of the sideshow life, he decided to travel back to his home town and is now a successful ink salesman."
