Allen's Zoo


Octopal

My friend Beppe suggested he was reading “Moby Dick”. I like that.

2.12 Also…I came upon an illustrator quite by accident, I’d not heard of or seen before. I think he’s amazing. His caricatures are beyond compare, really fun & beautifully done. Check him out…Wouter Tulp.

Aww so adorable =P
Is that a baby octopus? It looks like it has ears =P
I love how the big octopus is looking at the baby

Thanks! Yes. He’s designed after a Dumbo Octopus (Grimoteuthis). They have flaps resembling ears on their heads. I was going for that took.

so when you draw this, did you put anyone into the character? like you are the little one or some friends or ? who?

Comment by Fiona.q

Hi Fiona, Yes. Like an actor that needs to “get into character”, I need to as well. That means remembering a personal moment to give it a context. It becomes personal that way.

Comment by Allen Capoferri

then, who’s the big one? who’s the little one??

Comment by Fiona.q

I had to smile when I read your response to my reply. It’s cute :) I was thinking of myself when I’d read to my daughter.

This is sweet. I love illustrative art. To think so much image can be caught in just lines. It’s enormously talented.
