Frank Cephalopod, PI by kafine Frank Cephalopod, PI by kafine
When I read the comments on the Sea Monster picture, I knew I was going to get to draw an octopus in a hat. So this is for you guys.

Watercolour, ink, collage.

I kind of failed with the backing paper this time :s

I doubt it, but if someone wanted to come up with something about Frank on their own steam I'd be interested in seeing it.

If there is one thing every deep-sea, tentacled mollusc needs, it's a fedora.

I love the volume that's captured in the tentacles. You can actually feel the weight there.

Blimey, I thought this was Ursulav for a moment before I read that it was yours. I am loving this sort of 1930s Jazz/New York underwater underworld kick you've got going :D

There's one on the Tea Party but that's all I've got. I'm a bit stuck for adaptable sea monster ideas.

It could go either way, maybe he'll exectute a stylish crawl/slide, maybe he'll slip and go plop.

I don't picute octopuses smelling unless you leave them out in the sun.

he's wearing a cool hat to keep the sun off his face so I was thinking he'd probably hang out where the sun might get him a bit pongy... maybe he uses after shave?
