The Nadya Suleman Octomom is a new species recently discovered in the Los Angeles area. Her mating habit consists of visiting fertility clinics and impregnating herself with as many spawn that will fit into her capacious womb. She uses her well-manicured eight tentacles to juggle her 14 children while flipping through the pages of any magazine featuring Angelina Jolie. The suckers located underneath each tentacle allow the Octomom to grab as much tax payer money as possible and to also seek out lucrative endorsement deals, expensive makeup, and maybe even grab Oprah's attention or get her own Bravo/Discovery/TLC/blah blah blah show like the other famous Duggar-esque families out there.
I tried so hard, so very hard to ignore the Nadya Suleman story, but it was near impossible. She's everywhere - there is no escape. A few days ago while having an uninspired day, a cheery email from a reader landed in my in-box requesting that I "please please please" draw the "Octo mom". I figured, why not? This is for you Elizabeth! Medium: Graphite on paper, digital color.
