My sister and I may have talked about sleeping inside an octopus once or twice. This one looks absolutely adorable and cuddly. There needs to be such thing as an octopus pillow/blanket combo with a squooshy head, and fabric tentacles. Perhaps you could expand upon that sometime.
this is adorable. if the girl does not have the red dots on her face, then the top hat on the octopus seems out of place. but together, it is as though they have just finished a tea party and are getting read to take a nap. just fantastic...and i love how you did not completely color the background....it adds something, i do not know what, but it is great!
