August 15..."O" Micro Art Mini Challenge


Tell me, O Octopus, I begs, Is those things arms, or is they legs I marvel at thee, Octopus If I were thou, I'd call me Us.
(Ogden Nash)

Scientists behind a recent study aimed to answer the question: why don't octopuses, with their sticky suction cups, tie themselves in knots? Pictured: Key West octopus. (Photo : Flickr) 
 Octopuses fascinate me. The way they move, and how they look with all those suction cups and delicate, subtle colors. Contortionists, they can wiggle their way out of jars and in between tightly spaced rocks. They can even deactivate their suckers, preventing themselves from becoming completely entangled with their own arms. 

Today's Project:  "O" Octopus's Garden
  • Do a quick search for octopus images. Find one whose colors and shape appeal to you. Use this to generate ideas for making a small version.
  • Make a quick sketch of an octopus on your 3x3 card. Consider placement on the page and adding details to suggest background imagery. Will your animal be realistic or more of a caricature?
  • Use color (or stick with black and white). Add details with a pen.
