I love this! I have a little yellow hand crochet octopus named Roger Yellowton that I take pictures of doing tons on ridiculous things on miniature scale (since he's the size of my hand pretty much) This has a special place in my heart now.
I just read their story on your page... brilliant! I always love to see funny relationships between animals and people and these two are just wonderful, you have fantastic ideas and very good painting skills!!
I am probably a terrible person for this, but when I see a pretty green-haired girl and an octopus in the same room, my brain goes instantly to Final Fantasy VI, and stays there. This picture is adorable, though.
