(Gocco greeting card by Apak. $4.00)After a long, arduous 7-hour photoshoot today, I plopped down on the couch, flipped open the laptop and started looking for octopi on Etsy. As summer approaches, we're seeing more and more sailor-styled clothing in the shops, and with that, I really hope we see more nautical imagery, and in particular, the octopus.
However, when I did a search for "octopus," I found tons of pictures of said creature on people's heads. Was there some sort of weird, collective telekinesis with loads of artists one day that just said "Octoheads...brilliant!"? It's a strange sort of trend, yes, but some of these images, I think, are actually pretty cool.
