I have recently decided that I need to hone it in a little and focus my sleeves on bringing ocean life to my coffee life. I started by designing this octopus wrap sleeve, and I focused on thinking in two dimensions rather than creating a purely sculptural design.
I loved starting with an octopus, since the fluid movement around the mug feels completely natural to this animal. The long arms all curl with some overlap that emphasize their unique physiology. I definitely hope to keep making these underwater style sleeves!
