(Printed to fit A3)
The Curse of the Dumbo Octopi series calendar includes the full series with some add ons.
This is generally based on the original series done in mixed media on linen and canvass for the exhibition , with some variations to fit the images with the calendar format. I have also included hand written titles , subtly (hopefully not too small) into the corners as they each have very personal names.
For those of you who have missed the basic premise the outline of the characters and the story is below. For those of you who are possibly by now sick of it there’s no need to read further. I hope you can just enjoy the new format.
The Curse of the Dumbo Octopi follows the quixotic adventures of the central character That 3 Headed Dude in the Corner of the Room and their faithful morph pig, Sancho, as they set out to confront the dreaded Dumbo Octopi. Though blissfully unaware of these creatures until recently, the Dude, comprised of Ice Cream Cone Man, The Balaclavonaut and Wild Donkey Boy, (3 minds that share the same heart and soul), make it their mission to take on the treachery of the creatures some call an urban myth. This is taken to the point of obsession and they come to the brink of being consumed by forces beyond their control. The Curse of the Dumbo Octopi is a story about finding your inner selves; fear as a tool of manipulation; secret government departments with shady portfolios; power hungry media barons; talking to yourself; road trips; a choice between soup and terrine; and whether 3 heads are better than one.
Who is the real enemy here? Will The 3 Dumbo Octopi hunters work this out in time before they discover the truth? And is it a truth they can handle as Colonel Jessop might ask?
