Freebie Fridays is a weekly feature on Little Gold Pixel in which I share a free printable or design resource — art printables, wallpapers, etc. — for you to download and enjoy.

You’re probably looking at that octopus free printable and wondering, “What?” or, fingers crossed, you’re laughing. Because laughter is the intended purpose.

When I came across a leggy vintage octopus (or is it a cuttle fish?) on The Graphics Fairy, this quote from Spy Hard came to mind immediately.

We love watching comedy spoofs in this house.

There are a few I’ve probably seen an unhealthy amount of times: Spaceballs, the Naked Gun series, Austin Powers, Spy Hard. Yes, I love Leslie Nielsen.

I was inspired by a scene in Spy Hard in which an innocent man dancing in a club continues to be the victim of unintended violence. First they stab him, then they use him as a battering ram. All the while, he shouts, “I came here to dance!”

What can I say — if you can follow my twisted sense of humor, congratulations! You’re invited over for movie night. We’re watching Spy Hard. Again.

Octopus Free Printable Process

Tools used: Illustrator, The Graphics Fairy, The Goldsmith Vintage font

Here’s a little process video showing you how much consideration I give to font choice! I still love Futura, but it didn’t play well with the vintage vibe of the octopus. So I went a little vintage, a little faded.
