Illustration Friday: "Enough"

My submission for Illustration Friday's theme, "Enough."

I read this crazy article about octopi that have tons of extra tentacles (or arms)- one had up to 96 arms! Sounds like the gene that tells the tentacle gene "8 is enough!" is turned off in these little cephalopods!"



(the colors in my pic were inspired by a picture of a preserved octopi from 1957- very weird looking!)

Oooooh, I love bizarr-o facts like this! When I'm old and grey, I won't remember much, but I'll be filled with useless trivia. I'm convinced of it. This is a really cool octopus. Lovely coloring work!

Great illustration with great color. I don't think I could have enough arms, but I guess some people would give me weird looks.
