I just found out recently that the correct plural of “octopus” is either “octopuses” or “octopodes.” “Octopi” is a mix of Greek and Latin, which is incorrect. However you pluralize them, I draw a lot of them.
Earlier this year, in my #100monsters project, I did this little drawing. I and a lot of other people like the character so much that when I offered the first 30 up for sale, it sold immediately twice over. I offered the second person a sequel drawing, in which he dragged the ship down to the bottom of the ocean for a snuggle. I recently did a much larger version in color, which I just finished:
This version is going to be available in an 11×17 print very soon.
