Five years ago to the month, I opened my Veeptopus Etsy site. Since that time, I have been amazed how much people have connected with my insane project of putting octopuses with vice presidents. I loved reading emails I got from people saying that their son or aunt or girlfriend really liked my work. But I have been evolving away from cephalopod-themed work for a while now and it's time to move on.
So if you have been thinking about getting that portrait of Harry S Truman with an octopus on his head or a picture of Alexander Hamilton facing down Aaron Burr, now is the time to do it. The Veeptopus Etsy shop will close on October 1.
