Octopus Design

ballardocto_sept2016

This is the mock-up I made for a project that never happened.  It was meant for a rotunda ceiling in a new beach house and would’ve looked amazing.  I think they were over budget and the first things to get cut are the fancy flourishes.  Oh well.  I still love my little octopus.  I think I succeeded in making him look almost sweet without becoming cloying and strong but not menacing.

He now happily resides in a private collection.
