Out of the ether

I've been doodling since I could hold a pen. Most of these scrawlings and drawings were of bizarre creatures and horrible monsters. As I grew up I knew I only draw to entertain myself. Everybody has their own take on what's funny and what's interesting to them. What I draw is my perspective. I've been lucky to learn that there are others who see things in a similar shade as I and are also entertained by what I create.

So, during my uni days I pull a stupid and pointless name out of the ether. Octopanda. There's no clever meaning, no in depth or convoluted back story. I just thought it was a funny idea. A panda with tentacles! Like many projects throughout those years I abandoned it and moved along.

Until a year ago. I wanted to make a name for myself not just as an illustrator but as a brand. I tried all sorts of brand names and themes but in the end I got drawn back to my original set up name. Octopanda. I just felt right.

So, now here I am creating odd things and selling them in various mediums and formats for the lovers of oddities. I enjoy making people laugh as much as shocking them.
