Octopus Layout Complete

Tue, 11 Jan 2011

I've put together two octopuses (octopii?) today. The geometry is now spot on, the parts fit together perfectly and we are, as we say in cardboard engineering circles, ready to go.

Next step colour. Not long now! Oh, and I think I'll add a bit of wavy sea weed and a star fish for the box top.

    PS: Octopuses and Octopi are both grammatically correct (I learned from this very cool series Kory Stamper, an Associate Editor at Merriam-Webster, talks about the plural version of octopus.)

    Can’t wait for the download.

    Can't wait for the download. This one looks huge fun. Real plural of octopus is octopodes – Greek derivation. But it is not in common usage because people don't generally know and are more used to particular Latin plural forms.
