Emerging from the deepest depths of the darkest sea, The Octopus can now be unleashed onto your desk to help you multitask like never before. He’s a bit spooky at first glance, but you’ll soon realize his softer side and grow to love him. He’s prone to jealously and sometimes a bit “clingy.” But take wonder in his ability to clean up your spills, organize your paperclips, and protect your precious diary or computer equipment.

ABOUT THIS PROJECT:
The Octopus papercraft holds a special place in my heart, because without it, Desktop Gremlins would never exist! I was drifting off to sleep on a dark and stormy night (literally) when I made the decision to practice my drawing skills more often in the coming months. As the glow of lightning danced around the room, and thunder echoed in my ears, a vision of an octopus swam into my imagination as a possible subject for my future drawing exercises. But more important than the plan to draw the creature was the spark of an idea that the art would somehow stand itself up in a vertical position—illustration, form, and function combining into a tangle of paper-craft tentacles. Groggily, I climbed out of bed and sketched the idea on paper before going to sleep. I never imagined that the vision of this blue octopus could lead to so many amazing opportunities.
