Daily Doodle : Old Octopus

It's funny how things develope as you start throwing ideas about. I fairly quickly realised that a conch shell would make a good ear trumpet and as soon as I thought that the rest of the image fell into place. I wanted to keep everything as simple as possible rather than filling it with walking sticks and zimmer frames etc. The black ink was something that came to me right at the end and it amaused me greatly as a reference to the loss of being able to control bodily functions.
