    Hey everyone

    My name is Mike and I dig Octopuses in general with a capital D. I'm an animator that if given the chance would veg in from of the discovery channel 6 days out of the week. Octopuses are one of the most fun animals to draw so when I saw "the octopus show" On "Nature" tonight I had to visit the PBS site which had a link here so here I am. This site rocks and I can't wait to explore every nook and cranny.

    So Hi!

    See what I do on my on-line portfolio

    Thanks for having me
    Mike

    I think we should all thank Tony for creating the TONMO venue as it certainly attracts the top talents in the world of cephalopoda. :thumbsup: :cheers: :glass: :sun:

    Brilliant work Mike!

    Apologies for the tardy welcome; I must have missed your post before.

    Hope you enjoy TONMO and if, as Kat suggests, you ever wish to paint a cosmic Opabinia taking over the world, I'll be the first to hang it on my wall.

    :welcome:

    Phil

    of course, if a 'river horse' were to meet a ceph in your creations, good fortune would surely follow you to the end of your days.....

    :D :D :D
