Fine art illustration of a California Two-Spot Octopus (Octopus bimaculoides.)
The California Two-Spot Octopus was completed on 9.14.2010. One thing I find so interesting about octopus is their relatively minor changes in appearances from the miniscule to the massive. Generally, you can look at an animal and have some idea of it’s scale. But a tiny octopus, such as the deadly Blue Ringed , isn’t that much different from a massive one like the Giant Pacific and it’s hard to tell how large an octopus is unless there is some item nearby to give some indication of scale.
