Squid for dinner and your walls

Nov 22, 2009

Squid is one of my favorite things to eat, especially when it's cooked with spices in a stir fry.  (Check out this recipe here.)  I have noticed lately a more popular interest in squid, especially in the area of art.  I'll be the first to admit that they are not cute creatures, but there is something so intriguing about their form and movement.  Whether you can stomach them on a dinner plate or not, consider trying them on a wall.

That woodblock print is so neat! I love how it's sort of an outline but sort of cartoony... Cool stuff!
