Octopedestrians: Brilliant start

How it all started. Above is the initial sketch in my notebook when I started thinking it might be fun to create an urban street scene with octopuses strolling around. Obviously, some refinement was needed.

A first sketch like this is raw. Its job is just to help me remember the idea. Later, lots of tweaking and refinement will happen. But at first, I just need to make sure I don't forget the idea.

The first week.  I want to thank all you sponsors who got behind this project so far. We hit the goal fast, so a production run is going to happen. Paper has been ordered early, printing plate ordered, and I’m waiting to see a proof.

Deadline. If you know anyone who’d enjoy adding cephalopods to their art collection, be sure to tell them about this project before it closes on January 21.

Crass plug. If you need an unusual gift for Ground Hog Day or Valentines Day, consider the rhinoceros with Bette Davis eyes—an earlier letterpress print that’s still available.

Thanks for your amazing support.
