Octopus are such fascinating intelligent creatures. I get so excited when I see an octopus while snorkeling. It's not easy, they blend in so well.
This is a hand carved mokuhanga woodblock, had printed onto mulberry paper using a bamboo baren.
Mokuhanga is an old-school, labor intensive, woodblock printmaking technique. it is non toxic using watercolor inks and low tech, no printing press. needed. I hand painted man octopus after printing the key block.
