Octopus by =PSHoudini is a wonderful example for the fact that typography really has no boundaries in any medium! An original and skilled photo-manipulation that will probably put a smile on your face.

This was a winning design for a contest in worth1000 were the objective was to make a photomanipulation using the word of an animal. In my case i used the word and animal 'OCTOPUS'.
I hope you like it.

Will also be participating in the contest 'bring your type to life'
(i hope they'll accept this as an entry even though i didn't use any existing 'font'.

If you are interested, here is a video of the speed process:

OMG !! I still can't believe that photoshop can do that.

Or that a human can do that.
