I’ve dubbed this Cephalopod Week!

[2 Feb 2009 | By | 5 Comment(s) | 7,618 views ]

Wanna play? If so, send me links to any good crafts or art you made, or stuff you’ve found you think is cool, related to all things cephalopod-ish (squid, octopus, cuttlefish, nautilus…), I’ll be linking to some of the cool stuff around the web this week.

So, in honor of Cephalopod week, here is another order of calamari in watercolor form.
More squid love

And–since I think it’s the only cephalopod I’ve made craft-wise, I should re-introduce Henri the Hexapus… He’s a pupput and/or a stuffed toy made from recycled sweaters and lots of annoying to sew on buttons…. Go make one today (Tutorial here)!

    I’m a huge fan of the cuttlefish. If you haven’t seen it, there was a great Nova about them: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/camo/

    I don’t know if we’ll get on top of any cephalopod crafting this week (unless it’s suitable for preschoolers), but I’ll watch with rapt attention.

    This is way better than shark week.

    since you asked, here’s one I’ve always loved:

    These are great~ I am really enjoying your line of these fun creatures. I have to say that this is my fave… the colors and and those big green eyes just do it for me. Thanks for sharing.

    Thanks for coming over to my blog. Hey, I love this hexapus. I have about a zillion buttons and this is such a good idea, to make them suckers. But I sound like maybe you didn’t have the most fun sewing them on…
