let’s cuttle: Oh Plesiosaur pin review


Feast your eyes on this sparkly cephalopod! I may have spent a good amount of last week gushing about my love for ocean sunfish, but the mola mola’s biggest competition for my favorite sea creature has to be the cuttlefish.

Oh Plesiosaur released this shiny enamel pin just days after I returned from our trip to Monterey. It was destiny! Now I can wear it to work, hoping it will catch some wayward museum employee’s eye and make them wonder which alien-of-the-sea is hanging out on my lapel!


Oh Plesiosaur is “a one-woman illustration studio, inspired by nature and puns.” Considering that those are also my two greatest inspirations in life, it’s no surprise that I love everything that she makes! (Including this adorable business card, which I have yet to turn into a functioning papercraft plesiosaur. Soon!)


The cuttlefish arrived on a backing card in my beloved oceanic teal–suspended in a bubble!


Don’t these guys have such elegant silhouettes?


How radiant!

I have to close by pointing you to the exhibition page for Tentacles: The Astounding Lives of Octopuses, Squid, and Cuttlefishes at Monterey Bay! If I had a chance to go back and catch it once more before it closes…well, at least I know what to wear…!

    All very cute! (I think a business card you can turn into a plesiosaur has to be the best business card ever!)

    That’s is such a cute pin. I always feel like cuttlefish are one of the underrated cephalopods, Squids and Octopi always get more attention (and more people know about them) even though Cuttlefish are so cute!

      Haha, you are SO right! Why can’t cuttlefish get more love? I guess I’ll just have to use this pin to share them with the world 😀
