An octopus for scribblepicnic

I have been meaning to work on a poster as a follow up to my alphabet book that I have finished (but not yet cleaned up in photoshop yet to create the book in Blurb). 
I had so much fun creating the alphabet kids and animals that I wanted to put them all together in one place. The newly created scribblepicnic artist co-op challenge over at 
Dottyhill has a theme of Octopus this week, (along with a giveaway if you join in today) and it got me started on my poster.......

 

 
 

 

More to come I hope!

  4. I really liked seeing your process, vs. the instagram one which of course one cant do but so glad you did both mediums as it only adds exposure to Scribble Picnic, which at that this stage, is good! I love your end result, Andrea, as already noted on Insta. Thank you. And, as such, you get two entries into the giveaway too! :)

  7. Your octopus really made me smile. Don't know if it was the colors or the smile that it was giving.

  10. This is just gorgeous! It's like something straight out of a child's imagination - so it's perfect for a children's alphabet poster! Beautiful texture coming through in your blended watercolors.

  11. Oh, I thought I commented here last week. Must have forgotten to hit "Publish." Anyway, I really like your colorful octopus. Is that a giraffe he's hugging? Cute!
