Which artist/ hobbiest/ follower/ reader/ friend/ designer CAN and would like to (digitally?) draw/ design me an octopus/ pulpo/ inktvis/ hobotbnica LOGO?
I’d like all 8 tentacles to be visible because I have 8 specialisations I’d like to refer to. Also I’d like the octopus to be a bit more friendly than some of the examples below.
I can’t pay you, BUT I know how to play around with SEM & SEO, I’ll (online) advertise your skills/ your site/ your company for life!
By the way;
There are 289 species of octopuses, ranging from the giant octopus in the Northern Pacific (Octopus dofleini), which has on average 3 m (10 ft) in length and weighs 15 kg (33.3 pounds) (but the record was of 10 m (30 ft) in length and 272 kg (604 pounds)) to the male argonaut octopuses that are 2 cm (0.8 inch) long.
Octopuses live only 1-3 years in the case of females and up to 5 years in the case of males. They mate (at least females) just once for several times when they reach sexual maturity.
The penis of the octopus is called hectocotylus and it is formed of the third tentacle on the right of the male, which is modified in various ways to effect the fertilization of the female’s eggs. It stores spermatophores (packages of sperm cells). After one mating, when the male loses its hectocotylus, it won’t be able to copulate again till the next season, when a new hectocotylus grows.
In common type octopuses, males die within few months after mating, without regenerating another hectocotylus. The shape and size of the hectocotylus varies greatly among octopus species, being used for species identification.
Sorry for the unpermitted use of images I found through Google. I don’t own any of the images above.
The best food markets I’ve ever visited were in Barcelona and London.
The Mercat de Sant Josep de la Boqueria, often simply referred to as La Boqueria (Catalan pronunciation: [ɫə βu.kəˈɾi.ə]), is a large public market in the Ciutat Vella district of Barcelona,Catalonia, Spain and one of the city’s foremost tourist landmarks, with an entrance from La Rambla, not far from the Liceu, Barcelona’s opera house. The market has a very diverse selection of goods.
Borough Market is a wholesale and retail food market in Southwark, Central London, England. It is one of the largest and oldest food markets in London, and sells a large variety of foods from all over the world.
Have you ever been to any of these two markets?
What is according to your opinion the best food market in the world?
