Borne of ink and paint by artist Kaitlin Beckett’s steady hand, the OctoBeast ramps up its mating display by brandishing its antlers and displaying its three hearts. Magnificent.

Kaitlin Beckett is one of my favourite artists so I am thrilled to share this new work to kick off our September SciArt Blitz. Make sure to follow her on Instagram to see works in progress!
