First couple of attempts at woodcuts

My first two attempts at woodcut printing. I've since done some more Gojira prints with chine colle, which are currently drying all over the lounge floor...

I've also been crocheting octopi like there's no tomorrow for the two craft fairs: current total = 18 octopi, 4 platypi (all for commissions so none to sell yet!), 1 pig, 1 cuttlefish... have started doing Victorian villain octopi in top hats with moustaches, which are kinda fun!

Cool Godzillas!
Is plural of octopus octopi? Funny, because in Greek it was oktopous, with plural oktopodes, Said the linguist and etymologist in me.
Oh, I see now on Wiki that all forms are listed in the dictionary: octopuses, octopodes, and octopi.

I generally prefer octopodes but most people prefer octopi even though it's less "correct". I'd definitely vote for octopocalpyse as a collective noun though :D
