Señor Octopus - wild, slippery, spontaneous and always keeping you on your toes. One of my first ever illustrations and the first attempt in combining ink and watercolour, but my third attempt at an occy. On this occasion, I’d come home after a particularly trying (sh!t) day at work and out of frustration, wildly went at him with my ink pens and watercolour paint flicks. He then sat in a dusty sketch book for three years before seeing the light of day again. An illustration that was never meant for people (other than me) to see. But this wild one had to be set free, so here he is.
However he captures your imagination, he will bring much vibrancy to your home, either as a focal point and conversation starter or simply enjoying the splashes of ink and watercolour thrown his way. He’s also versatile; place him anywhere and he’ll fit right in.
Print is of an original, hand drawn, ink pen and watercolour illustration.
Available in the following sizes: A5 (148 mm x 210 mm), A4 (210 mm x 297 mm), A3 (297 mm x 410 mm) and A2 (420 mm x 594 mm).
The Señor came about in a flurry of inky pen strokes and splashes of watercolour paint after a particularly challenging day at work. He was my third attempt at an octopus so by the time I got to him, I didn't hold back and let my pen fly! You don't have to look too hard to see what emotions I was feeling at the time.
