When the surf is flat and the holidays are hell… who you gonna call?
Saint Calamari™ ~ Your Patron Saint of Gnarly Surf & Other Rad Miracles. That’s who.
The inspiration for this stirring piece can be seen in my highly scientific “thought cloud” below. It’s an amalgamation of the reference material that I used to create this modern Mexican Saint of Sick Surf.
I first drew a skull-headed octopus about 6 years ago when I was living in London and it had languished in its sketchbook until now, when I decided to dust off that idea and bring it back to the light of day with an extra injection of religion. Because, who doesn’t like religious kitsch?
Below I offer some compelling detail shots so you may bask in his holy glow.
