Your on! My only limitation is lack of a computer ( I am a naughty employee who types here on the company dime :mrgreen: ) I actually did a quite interesting Octo the other day, which was not really cubist, but based more on the pattern inherent in the shifting colorization and the strength of line created by the many arms. I'll see what I can do in de-constructing the octo and infusing it with the primitive elements of tribal art, oh, and gaining access to a scanner so y'all can see the results!

Deconstructing Octopus would make for both interesting movie and painting titles. Shall we copyright the name?

To me, Deconstructing Octopus sounds like a prog-rock band ( like King Crimson, for those of you unfamilair with the term) Its probably too late to copyright it - IMHO once a good idea is let out of the conciousness of one human, it infects the collective human sub-concious.
I sketched a bit (16 small sketches) on the theme, and found the following - either the entire page was filled with arm-like structures, or I reverted to minimalism with one or two massive arms. I also boiled the eye down to a simplified icon - if you were looking for an octopus you can find it, otherwise they were just craaaazy. Sort of fun. I am usually very concerned with the realistic representation of these animals, it was nice to just work from memory and see what stood out as defining characteristics.

:roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: Boy!How INKgenious to add an arm to avoid infringing on a copyrite law. Is that perhaps like copying a term paper and making one of the sentences a little longer :lol: :lol: Perhaps the artists lacked their own creativity and had to become admired vicariously. I think I have seen better tatoos on this site than that sculpture. Perhaps like the poor ,searching, sex-driven squids......it mistook the rock for a mate and was searching for some confirmation of its' sexual orientation :roll: :roll: :roll: :roll: JUST A THOUGHT :!: :!: :!:
