    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.

    thanks! Well...if enough people actually consider having this, ill try to check out how to make prints available. The drawing looks way better in real life anyway.

    I love all the detail and dimension of the suction cups.
