For my college class DRAWING STUDIO...this was my final drawing and it's quite abstract, but also very realistic at the same time. I wanted to capture the elegance, movement and biology through morphs drawn as ink. One octopus would morph into a 2nd one...slowly changing its body. The 2nd morphs into the third which is camouflaged within the rocky back ground.




^ I attend Parsons School of Design in NYC and my teacher loved the drawing. He said I taught the class, lol. Im glad to have drawn something I really love and had passion for. The actual drawing is actually 30" wide by 40" long and done all in pencil.
