This whimsical wall art print titled ‘The Octopus has Eyes’ from the Hidden Below set has been hand illustrated using fine liner pens, digitally coloured, and printed in Melbourne by The Nonsense Maker. Available in A4 and A3 size, the highly detailed drawing portrays a gentle blue octopus with eight graceful tentacles intertwining and curling around each other. Where the octopus would have suckers, each has been replaced by a large blinking eye. Each eye is moving independently, as if it has its own personality and thoughts. Behind the octopus is a plain pale blue circle, adding a modern graphic element to the vintage style drawing. Inspired by a dreamlike world where little is what it seems, this art print has a simple colour palette, using only shades of pale blues and white, alongside the black line art.

The Nonsense Maker’s ‘The Octopus has Eyes’ art print is hand made in Melbourne using all Australian suppliers. Beginning with a pencil sketch before moving to pen, a method called crosshatching is used to create the depth and the tone you see in the final design. This fine line art is then scanned into a computer and coloured digitally. All our art prints are printed on the highest quality paper with fade-resistant pigment ink, giving them the same life span as a painting.

Beach art prints are an expression of yourself and are the perfect way to make a space uniquely your own. Framed art is about finding the right balance of size, colour and composition, and it can be tricky. If you are feeling a little lost on how to frame art prints, check out our blog page for our best tips for decorating with wall art.

The Nonsense Maker’s Australian art prints are imagined from a fun and whimsical world where dreaming meets reality. Sometimes silly and sometimes sad, inspired by etching techniques used by old time illustrators. While the handmade greeting cards have much less detail, beach art prints can take up to 60 hours to create. Each of The Nonsense Maker’s costal art prints come packaged with a vintage book inspired backing board, and a short story of the inspiration behind the piece.
