[30 Jan 2009 | By | 21 Comment(s) | 11,911 views ]

2/12 update: Like the squidees? I’m donating one of the original squid watercolors to the Handmade Help relief effort for the Australian bushfires – go bid on her and help a good cause! Details and links to the auction Here.

For you, a free Valentine downloadable card!

Here are two cards you can print and share, featuring our lovely valentine squid. (He needs a name, any ideas?)

You can either snag it from flickr (click on the above image), or grab the higher quality pdf (prints 2 to a page) here.

Aren’t Cephalopods the ultimate valentine’s day theme?

[Edited to remove special valentines deal on artwork – remember, you can always contact me directly for art–I will do commissions, or check out my artfire shop which usually has a few pieces in it… You can also buy prints of any of my work at my Imagekind shop– if you’ve seen a piece you want, and I don’t have it listed there, just email me.]

(It’s Cephalopod Week, see all squidy/octopussy posts here!)

    I hear your pain on the horror of getting a ‘real job’. I’m right there with you, seriously. I checked on your Etsy site, do you ever try and sell original art on it?

I think 2009 is going to be a great year for you!
