The green fish might be scary, but the octopus actually has a very scary, but familiar expression on his face...hmmmm, reminds me of art directors....Amie Suz

Soon the mermaids will come and rescue the submarine. They will tell jokes to the octopus and the scary green fish until they laugh so hard they let go and swim away, happy.

I laughed out loud reading the critique and comments by your art director - she sounds vicious! :) Is she ever pleased? Anyway, I think your drawings are great! I wish I could colour like that!

I would totally shell out $$$ for a huge horizontal poster of an octopus totally wailing on a submarine. That is 100% certifiably awesome.

Not to nitpick but that's a Squid not an Octopus.

Ahh a squid. I need to brush up on my cephalopod taxonomy. Now do you happen to know what that scary green fish is called?
