Musical Cephalopod

Coulton Squid

Coulton Squid by Meg Lyman

5×7″ gouache on paper

At a recent convention, I was commissioned to create a Jonathan Coulton squid by a fan of his. He’s a cool musician guy who writes fun songs… and some are about cephalopods. How cool is that?

This is one of those commissions I really enjoyed. I love when people ask for cephalopod-related things, because it indicates that I am becoming known for them, but also because I love painting them.

For those artists out there who take commissions, what are your favorite subjects?
