    Hi! Octopus cartoonist here.

    Hey everyone, Long-time lurker, first time poster. My name is Sam Julian, and I am an octopus obsessive though I've always felt intimated at the thought of maintaining a personal aquarium. I like to look at 'em while scuba diving, and feed 'em while volunteering at the Aquarium of the Bay here...

    The myth of Octopolis

    The Tide Wall

    This is the Tide Wall, a living reef that protects the great city-state of Polyps. The parapets are studded with elkhorn coral that breach the surface at low tide, and patrolled by guards at low tide. There are two entrances: A weighted lower gate for ground transport, and a buoyant upper gate...

    I’ve been working on a solo graphic novel about a society of intelligent octopus. Welcome to Octopolis!

    Octopolis is set in a fictional future where humans drove themselves into extinction and intelligent octopus evolved in their wake. They’ve build their own society in the coral-encrusted ruins of our sunken cities. Disclaimer: I write Octopolis and have drawn everything you see in this image.
