Nautical Steampunk Art: Kawaii Octopi, by *egyptianruin!



For those who may not be familar with the term Kawaii, you've actually see much of it over the past few years.  According to the "urban dictionary", Kawaii is...

"An adjective in Japanese meaning "pretty; cute; lovely; charming; dear; darling; pet"... It's stem is two kanji meaning "can love".  It is commonly used by anime and manga fans."

One can gather that the octopus is a very popular kawaii topic, so as I searched DeviantArt, I came across a designer named *egyptianruin.  Her work, which can be found at her Etsy store, Kelly's Keychains, have a cacophany of unique items, including plenty of little octopuses!




If these little fellows do catch your eye, then consider a visit to her Etsy shop, at: http://www.etsy.com/shop/egyptianruin?ref=top_trail
... where she has many more little fellows to eye!  Do enjoy!
