Kraken Attack

Sea Monster Attack_flat_small

A while back, a friend of mine found a discarded painting on the side of the road. He suggested that I “improve” it, and this was the result. The “painting” is one of those relief prints meant to mimic real paintings (this one originally came from Eatons, according to a sticker on the back). I painted the Kraken on top with acrylics. A fun project, but ultimately too large to hang anywhere in the apartment.

Here is what it looked like before I added the Kraken. You have to admit, it seems like it’s missing something…

Original Painting

I was even famous on Reddit for a day. Many thanks to Stacy for that!

Update! Prints of various sizes and finishes are now available here.

      Indeed I do! It’s in storage right now, after unsuccessful attempts to hang it somewhere in the apartment. I’m not selling the original (it’s too big to ship), but I do have prints if you’re interested.
