Hooray for Nicky Beer today, an artist who if you don’t know then your soul has a loss.

WELL!
Here is the direct link to the poet Nicky Beer’s site.

And if you happen to go there, the first thing you’ll see is a skull with a shark and an octopus. This is the cover to Nicky’s book, The Octopus Game, and Nicky was kind enough to inform me that the artist who created that cover is Sandra Yagi, and here is the direct link to her site , where you can find more of her art: Sandra Yagi.

Um. If you also happen to glance at my site you’ll see that recently I’ve had one character having a whole adventure with a shark and a variety of octopuses.
And I swear on a stack of sharks and octopuses that I had not seen that image on Nicky’s site, but the painting on the cover of Nicky’s book is amazing, and I recommend checking out both of these sites and the artist’s therein.
