Artist's notes:

red octopus thumbThe East Pacific Red Octopus was completed on 5.18.2011. I had proposed drawing this cephalopod or a Proboscis Monkey on my Facebook page, assuming the monkey would easily win out. Well, it wasn't even close and every response went for the octopus. Which is fine, because I'm looking to create a page based on tide pool animals. The drawing was very intense and took several hours. It's based on a photo by Dan Hershman.

Information about the East Pacific Red Octopus:

The East Pacific Red Octopus is a cephalopod found in the shallow waters of the coastline and beaches of North America (but may also be found in part of the western Pacific ocean.) Octopus rubescens is a smaller species of octopus, growing only to about 9 inches long (22 cm) and weighing about 3.52-5.29 ounces (100-150 grams). Like other octopi, it can change the color and texture of it's skin to either match it's surrounding or express it's feelings when it is threatened. The diet of this octopus is large, and it will eat many different types of animals, such as gastropods, bivalves, crustaceans and scallops, although much of this information comes from observing captive animals.
