9 Octopus Images
Today we have a fun collection of Octopus Images, although some are actually Cuttlefish pictures. I’m not an expert on these two species, so forgive me if I call them the wrong name. Anyway, we have some very cool and fabulous Octopus Images for your projects! There is a gorgeous Antique Natural History Print of an amazingly colorful Octopus and Snail. Most of the collection are Black and White Clip Art drawings that really detail this amazing sea creature. We complete the set with some quirky and unusual pictures of Octopus. These would be wonderful to use in your Nautical or Coastal themed DIY Home Decor projects, Crafts, or Graphic Designs.
Black and White Octopus Images
This is a wonderful Vintage Octopus Image! This black and white engraving comes from a very Early Natural History book in my collection. According to the book this is actually a cuttlefish. He has wonderful long curling Arms on him! He was actually upside down and I flipped him over, but you can flip him back if you prefer. I hope you can use this in your Art! I think this is so fun! A funny Octopus from an old Dictionary. Such a nice black and white clip art image for your collection or art.
Here we have two versions of the same Vintage Octopus Image. Above is another illustration of the common cuttlefish from a book that was published around 1840-1845 in London, based on my research. Anyway, whatever species he may be… he has lots of awesome looking curly legs. It is such a fun graphic to play with!
Unique Octopus Clip Art
This particular Octopus Laying on Ocean Floor came from a French Dictionary page. It took a bit of time to extract him from the rest of the page, but I think it was well worth it. He is a great looking Octopus with all those wiggly arms! I think he is kind of scary looking. I wonder if he is sleeping on the bottom of the ocean? Interesting!
These are two marvelous looking Sea Creatures aren’t they? The two images above are from the same Early Natural History Book. The page indicates that they are both Argonauts. This unsurprisingly is a type of Octopus. The top one is scooting along the bottom of the Ocean, and the second one is swimming. I love how the legs, or arms, flow out behind the Octopus as they swim.
