This design was created for a local climbing gym to promote an annual event
called Beat The Heat. This competition is held for climbers of all ages and skill level to
compete with one another for prizes and just plain fun!
As for the design I wanted to do something with an octopus because I think they are
amazing creatures and I thought it would be a good challenge to somehow incorporate
it into the climbing world.
My husband gave me the idea to do a design with the octopus climbing up a ships
"prow" which is one of the bouldering walls at the gym.
This illustration was completely drawn in Adobe Illustrator using a Wacom tablet.
