I-F: Theory

It is my theory that an octopus would make a great DJ! Check out all those arms - one to hold the headphones, one with the next record, one to twiddle knobs... perfect.

This is a colour test for just a small piece of a sketch I did for an underwater rave party. I want the finished painting to have much more contrast and energy than this, but I think it's a good start anyway. This is the original sketch:

Note the black light eel, jellyfish lights, psychedelic fish and crab with legwarmers! I had fun with this one, and it will be fun to finish.

Oh, and I still can't quite reveal my news yet, but hopefully very soon...

What fun! I love it, and I think you're absolutely right about an octopus being a great DJ.

They'd probably make great cooks, too!

Bee said...

Lovely piece, nicely done and a good idea. I like the closer up view in the first, colour picture.

AWWWWWW this is great Kim!! How cute and funny, an octopus that is a DJ?! It makes total sense.. :o)
Love the crowd too. This is awesome. And your watercolor rendering is so beautiful :o)

Oh, now you are being cruel... He, he.. I'm dying to know you thing that you cant's say... ;o)

What a great idea! I could use a few more arms too, now that you mention it. I really like your tree with the grow motto too.

This is great fun. I love your loose style. I always think a mother needs to be like an octopus too!

Thanks for visiting my blog. x

Underwater rave party! Hillarious! I really like the colors of this. In the latest issue of national Geographic Magazine they have an article about the intelligence of animals. They show an octopus from an aquarium who actually recognizes people and shows signs of communication!

What a great idea, Kim, and so well executed. The drawing looks full of life and movement and your color study is perfect (I love the little turtle on the front row!)

Looking forward to hearing your good news! :-)
