Doesn’t everyone have a large, beer swilling, artist-in-residence octopus in their living room?

Arty’s been living with us for quite a while now but this is the first time I’ve stopped to take a picture of him.

Doffing my cap at the artist, I should say that the beer can was an unauthorized addition that I perpetrated. We also think that a large Rastafarian hat might look quite fetching on him.

Update: I found my pictures of Artopus and Jim from when Artopus was on display at the Ozarks Regional Arts Council Exhibition, Mountain Home, Arkansas in 2016.
