Art: My Cephalopod (Bobby Bill) by Artist Vicky Knowles
My best friend is a cephalopod
His Name is Bobby Bill
He lives in an aquarium
Up on the windowsill

Please meet Bobby Bill, a fancy blue octopus! He's not crazy about being kept as a pet (especially on the windowsill, what a lousy place that is to keep deep sea dwellers such as octopi!) Octopi are highly intelligent creatures with excellent problem solving skills, and I have no doubt that Bobby Bill will find his way out of that aquarium and back into the depths of the ocean in no time (leaving poor Violet heartbroken of course, but she'll get over it).

In case you were wondering, different types of octopi live in different zones of the ocean. One reason that Bobby Bill is so anxious to get out of that aquarium is that his species is from the cold, deep dark depths of the ocean, that aquarium in the window will fry him lickety split!

This is an ACEO sized (2.5"x3.5") oil painting on masonite panel.
