Third go on the new Wacom tablet. Been wanting to do a bookplate illustration for a little while, and the theme for Illustration Friday this week was “Swim”… so I tried to hit two birds with one stone.  I’ll adapt it into bookplate format, but for now – here’s the artwork.  I drew a small sketch, a larger sketch on Bristol board, inked it by hand with a brush, scanned and colored it in Photoshop Elements with the Wacom.

Octopus reading eight books.

  1. I wish I had eight hands to hold eight different books at the same time. There are so many books and so little time. Great concept!!!
