    Huh. Clearly I don't understand art.

  2. chuck_lw says:

    Yeah. Uh-huh. Those mind-controlling cephalopods ALWAYS try to convince you it's all just an art project. Don't be fooled.

    I'm pretty sure I saw Kevin Hundsnircher or <lj-user="hypnox"> doing shoots with bits of octopus years ago. What's next, Thierry Muegler models doused in stage blood?

    • majcher says:

      Eric Kroll also has also done some octopus work, but I don't think it was ever printed, just buried in the nameless heaps of stuff on his site somewhere.

    Anyone else remember Star-o from DC comics?

    I'm glad you're keeping track of this. I wonder when this particular trend will die.

    I hope you realize that you started a bit of an obsession for me.

    And, wow, that pic you just put up is GREAT!

  8. I told you that the Octopi were going to take over the world, but did you believe me...noooooo.

    It's eating my brains! It's eating my brains!

    How could you support such a thing?

    (scroll down to the Cascadia Evening Post. Apologies if the link is old news)

    • sherbooke says:

      That's just wrong and strangely X Files-ish. But, yes, tree-wearing octopi will be the next Big Thing on the ent cat-walk. What next, hedge salmon? Tree dolphins?

    I scanned the 2 page spread from a 1982 issue of American Photographer which featured Squid based clothing.
