"In another experiment, Anderson gave octopuses plastic pill bottles painted different shades and with different textures to see which evoked more interest. Usually each octopus would grasp a bottle to see if it were edible and then cast it off. But to his astonishment, Anderson saw one of the octopuses doing something striking: she was blowing carefully modulated jets of water from her funnel to send the bottle to the other end of her aquarium, where the water flow sent it back to her. She repeated the action twenty times. By the eighteenth time, Anderson was already on the phone with Mather with the news: “She’s bouncing the ball!”"

The Octopus Man Rises

The Octopus Man Rises

Back in 2008, I painted a small, A4 sized illustration of a character called the Octopus Man. Now, in 2012, I have revisited the mysterious character and painted the scene where he leaves the ocean and steps onto land, for the first time.
