If you’re just tuning into my blog folks here’s the nitty gritty of it. MASK365 is a project inspired by Skull A Day in which I will be creating a one of a kind mask every day for a year. You may notice that I label some of the mask G.A.S., which stands for Guerrilla Art Squadron (another series of work of mine).
Badhex released a fascinating blog yesterday entitled ‘Ten Things I Love About Octopodes’. You should really check it out. For example, I had no idea that “as of 2009, they are the only invertebrate to have beenobserved using tools – a trait once only thought to be human.”
I had heard of the deadly blue-ringed octopus and its notoriously toxic venom but I did not know that all octopodes are venomous. So wait a second… let’s tally that up. They are venomous, ink squirting, hard beaked, camoflauge wearing, eight-armed, tool using invertabrates… sounds like the Predator of the Sea. That earns a gold star of awesomeness in my book.
