This cartoon octopus character was created for a client developing a new baby product to help with diaper rash.
Believe it or not, I had not drawn a cartoon octopus until this project, so I was looking forward to it. I will say that I underestimated the amount of work all those tentacles and suckers were.
Here’s a wild project I recently completed – Belt-Fed Baby!
The client was the owner of a gun shop, and he always used the pun of referring to himself as a “belt-fed baby” (as opposed to a “bottle-fed baby”), playing on the belt-fed aspect of machine guns.
I loved the juxtaposition of the cute baby and the giant machine gun, although I am sure there are some out there who will be up in arms over the design.
