This image of an octopus was originally created for one of the sections of the 'Fallen Totem'; a piece of workproduced to highlight endangered species and the animals that are effected by our destruction of their natural habitats. The octopus is a fascinating creature with a complex physiology. They almost look otherworldly in appearance. The title 'The Kraken' is reference to the legendary sea monsters that were supposed to live on the coast of Norway and Greenland, usually depicted as giant octopi.
This image was further developed as a design for a bookmark for the Book Depository.
