This is the last in my current series of verse-inspired drawings. The poem behind this particular visual madness is Casting These. As you can see, the graphic image is very loosely connected to the words at its core.
The drawing started with the octopus, which in my mind formed an apt symbol for the many tentacled creature that is the Internet. It's also a sea-based notion in keeping with the nautical metaphor of the poem's title. I'm unabashedly quite fond of the little beasties heading the eight legs.
