One day amongst a pile of my beads, some tiny beaded octopi suddenly appeared. They hung around my house exploring for a few days before leaving to explore the world and hopefully find new homes. I hope their new owners love them as much as I loved them.
Inspired by Atomic Shrimp’s beadmen and Urban Thread’s Giving Bunny I thought I’d have a go at spreading my art through the community. One of my favourite things to do is make tiny beaded octopuses so I thought that it would be an appropriate piece of art to abandon. Every now and then other little friends may go a-wandering.
I discovered that there is a whole community out there spreading happiness thought the free sharing of art. Art Abandonment’s Facebook page is a good place to start if you want to join in.
If enough people are interested I’ll make a tutorial for my octopi and have links to the tags I print off. If each artist has their own letter and number code (mine is HOD##) we can see where each octopus ends up!
If you want to see what and where I have abandoned and photos from those who have found them, click here!
For those who have found one of my little friends, please comment below, and include the designation code on the tag so I know who you have found (should be HOD##). I would love to know that my tiny creations had a new home! These comments are moderated so may take a little time to show. If you don’t want your comment public, send any comments to HippieOtterDesigns@gmail.com. You can even email photos of your new friend to the same address and they will be added to the Facebook album above (unless you tell me not to).
