Woot, just got my walking your octopus book.  The kids love it.  Hoping you will be doing a series on some of the lesser known cephalopod varieties such as the Pacific Northwest Tree Octopus.  Are you going to be Comic Con by chance??

Your art is amazing! I saw your octopus images in tumblr and that lead me to your DA page, I'm really happy to have found you, your art is inspiring and beautifull! Thank you for making such great pieces. i'll make sure to check your octupus colouringbook :)

I work at a custom framing shop and that is how I stumbled upon your work. It was the tea time with Victoria and Otto that a customer was having framing professionally.  I'm very impressed. Neko Emoji-32 (Clap) [V2]  I was just wondering if you would be okay with me recreating one of Victoria's for a costume project.  That I can wear to some comic cons.  I only ask because it is your work and all that copyright stuff.  Of course you get full credit for the design, I would just make and present it.  If you're not cool with that, no biggie. As a fellow artist, I understand.
Miku and Luka (Brofist) [V1]  I so look forward to seeing more of your work!

Hey, love your work and I did kind of a fan art series inspired by you. If you're curious the pieces can be found here: and of course part of them is in my gallery.

if possible in the future, could you possibly show us a tutorial on how to use tea to paint?  I may be over-thinking the process but i just want to know how to get the right deepness in color or if different teas create different shades.
