Fine art illustration of a Mimic Octopus (Thaumoctopus mimicus.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Mimic Octopus was completed on 1.19.2011. I was looking to draw my fifth octopus, but couldn’t decide on a species. But then I came across a great photo by my Flickr friend Eunice Khoo of a Mimic Octopus, which I had seen a video of some time ago. This clever cephalopod captured my imagination even then, so I chose it to be the subject.
