Octopus drawing sequence

I made a special accordion book about a year ago with a little red octopus in it – I documented the illustration so you could see the layers of ink go on. I love using drawing inks (I used Windsor-newton inks in this one) because you can layer them to make really rich colors – they aren’t opaque like some watercolors, and they flow really well.

This is so cute, Ruth! What a simple idea, but done beautifully, and I like how the octopus and his bubbles extend over all the “pages”! Very nice.
