It's becoming a tradition that I draw something to be given away during Christmas. Whether I'm celebrating with family or friends we usually do a White Elephant gift exchange and the art is always a big hit. I was having trouble coming up with an idea when my wife suggested I just do another octopus. My studio space has been relagated to a corner of the kitchen table, but I was able to bag this one out in just about a day. From conception, to pencils, to ink. Not to shabby and I'm really pleased how it turned out.
