Octopus on a cheeseboard. Sounds like a cool name for a band. Laser engraving courtesy @patrick.carroll.designs. I'll do another sanding and then apply the oil/wax. If you had to pick a favorite Bond movie, what would it be?
There’s a story in there. And it won’t swim away.
Made these letter-pressed prints during an artist residency where I learned how to: turn an original drawing into a letter press plate, set up ink rollers for the press, run the prints and more. They remind me to carve time for what’s important and to stay. Stay with the art.
The series is called “Underwater Guides”.
They’re available for purchase and proceeds will go to my friends who have been affected by California wildfires.
Each set of 3 prints includes one letter-pressed illustration of:
1) La Sirena (the mermaid)
2) Dolphin (the helper)
3)Octopus (the keeper of abundance and fertility). 4) One envelope because you will want to mail one to a friend and keep two to frame for your home.
Set of 3: $150

Spanish Rock Octopus 🐙😍
AKA: Common Octopus, or Octopus Vulgaris 🐙
Wild caught from #Spain, Rock Octopus gets its name from the rocky #sea beds on which it dwells. #Octopus adapt to their environment, and can change color to blend with the rocks to hunt for prey. ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️
Did you know #Spanish Octopus undergoes a special tumbling process to break the cell walls down and tenderize the meat? This process has greatly reduced the cooking time, making it much easier to prepare in the kitchen. 👍👍👍 We have Spanish Rock Octo, under 1lb each, on sale this month!
