    Love the octopus! You would win my heart if you did one with a ukulele.
    Anyway, really nice work!

  • Julia [] :

    I love the black and white cello playing octopus. I like the way you filled in the negative spaces with the black. Am I correct?

  • Tom [] :

    Great character and love the shadows

  • Dot [] (author) :

    thanks everyone! I had this in my head [and it was originally a violin, not a cello, but with no scale, it IS hard to tell :) ] and it just had to come out.

    I’ll see about the uke Paul :)

    Ugg Australia has recruited designers like Manolo Blahnik, Carlos Falchi, Rebecca Minkoff, Rafe pictured,and more to design high-end versions of the brand’s trademark boots for its seventh annual Art & Sole auction.I have to assume these will be filed under unaffordable (which is good – more money for St. Jude!), but I’ll still be going to the Web site on December 1 to window shop and see what these designers have cooked up.I am trying to picture what I would do to make these high end… Real Italian leather? A pearl brooch? Other expensive ingredients and sparkles? Maybe the differences won’t be that extreme, but I hope each designer puts his personal touch on the shoe. I’m certain at the very least you’ll be able to pick out which Uggs came from Betsey Johnson (ugg boots classic tall, please!).The event is likely to inspire as many interesting Ugg knockoffs as there are regular Ugg knockoffs, so it is possible we’ll see something like this around town next year. It’s not only a great event for charity but probably also a good move to keep Uggs alive and relevant… especially with the number of people who’d like to see them disappear for good!UGG boots on sale!I will of course keep wearing my Uggs because A) I have them and B) they are warm, but if your kid asks Santa for Where the Wild Things Are UGG boots… I feel for ya.
