A long, long, very long time ago I used to work on octopus and in 1999 published a memoir on the New Zealand fauna. In the process of compiling this memoir I travelled quite a lot, and on 29/09/1994 I found myself in Santa Barbara looking at specimens of Benthoctopus in the collections of the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. I drew many specimens as accurately as I could, pencil on vellum. The plates are ~ 28 x 21.5cm in dimension. Well, I find myself relocating offices, and in need of a cleanout. The sketches are actually quite nice. They are covered in my notes for each specimen. One of the species is Benthoctopus robustus; the other two are of likely new species (that have yet to be described). If anyone is interested in a little O'Shea artwork on their walls (with a white card background they look quite sensational; the dark pics here are because I'm in an office with a camera without flash), they are welcome to the set of 3 at US$300. The monies would go to my research trust fund (and allow us to buy a few more things for the ceph research). I'll even sign them if you like. Drop me a pm if you're interested, and I'll send much higher res pics through, with much better lighting.
