'Octopus in a Sardine Can'

‘Octopus in a Sardine Can’ is a cartoon-Esque illustration which utilises the vertical shape of the Traffic light control boxes and turns it into an opened sardine can. To add a little additional humour, and vibrant colour to the piece, I’ve illustrated an escaping octopus in the place of sardines. The tentacles will wrap around all 4 sides of the box, adding splashes of orange colour over the blue-grey background colours of the can.
