Artomatic just wouldn't be complete without a sinister cephalopod, and luckily Kurt Peterson stepped up to make it happen. At least I think that's a cephalopod. Unfortunately, Peterson's another one of these off-the-grid, website-free artists, but you can read a little about him at his Artomatic user page.
Looks like a miscegenation of old oak tree and sea anemone to me.
(oh btw, i remember one of your earlier posts have some interesting photos and i mentioned something about using telephoto lens to make real life looks like miniatures WITH animation... here is an example of what i meant...
<- on the other hand, this MIGHT be the blog you mentioned in the first place....now they have a animated one :)
