In a Cephalopod’s Back Yard
Sometime last week he came across a blog posting that offered one particular person’s list of the Worst Beatles Songs ever. On that list was Octopus’s Garden – written and sung by Beatles’ drummer and lovable comic-relief… Ringo Starr.
Craig didn’t think that seemed right… I mean, bashing on Octopus’s Garden somehow seems to be in the same class with screaming at cuddly kittens. So Craig decided to do a blog of his own in response… and he asked me if I’d do an illustration of an Octopus to go with it.
I don’t think I’ve ever drawn an Octopus before… and I happen to be a big fan of Ringo Starr (not so much the musician, but more the persona)
…so I said yes.
And here it is…
Thanks for the smiles, Ringo.
