Cat Exoskeleton by Kaitlin Beckett

As an octopus has such a soft, squishable body, he needs an exoskeleton to protect him. A cat should be about the right size.

Watercolour, ink and pastel on canvas.

A collection of curious beasts of the sea, air, land and subconscious; painted and drawn with airbrush, dip pen and stained fingers, lovingly embellished with iridescent pigments and metal leaf.
