Lively, colorful and fun print of my original octopus work featuring The Creature from the Black Lagoon!

Features a glorious octopus, squiggly tentacles waving in the deep. Shades of aqua blues, zingy oranges and reds. In the corner a scaley Creature from the Black Lagoon pokes his head through the seaweed greens! Also features tiddly goldfishes, star fish, shrimps and all manner of ocean life bobbing about

At the top the words read:
When the moon hits your eye
Like a big pizza pie
That's a MORAY!

The original piece, which was a watercolor painting with hand embroidery, has sold and is living in USA however if you would like something similar I would be happy to oblige just drop me a line through convo

Mr.Octopus's story:
I cannot express how much fun I had working on the original of this piece; it was inspired by a day trip to a sealife centre with my friend and her kids.
The sprogs being somewhat vertically lacking in the inches department at the time and a lot of the tanks being relatively high up, I designated myself ofFISHal tour guide and off we trotted:

"What's that one fake aunty Kaz?"
"Fish"
"What's that one fake aunty Kaz?"
"Bigger fish" (you can see I'm a bit of an expert in my field)
"What's that one fake aunty Kaz"

...and this was it, my perfect moment. In my best and most loudest Dean Martin impression:
"...THAT'S A MORAYYYYY!!!!!!"

The kids just gave me a blank stare and cleared off to the gift shop but oh how I cherish that moment!
