We really like octopi here. And cuttlefish. Cephalopods in general are smart, tough, funny, and change color when they dream. Here is some lovely cephalopod art from Bridget Vincent. Here’s more from the artist on Art the Science:
“My art usually mirrors what I study, so marine biology, ecology, and evolution relate the most to my work. Some pieces have been based on my research projects, some inspired by papers I’ve read, and others showcase the immense biodiversity in some groups, especially cephalopods. However, I’ve been focusing on bettering my technique lately and plan to start creating pieces that relate more directly to evolutionary principles soon.”
