Anyone who's been around for a while will know it's been ages since I promised to reveal the names of the Octaparents, but at last here they are, complete with an explanation as to why Octamum was referred to as "Mrs. Melody" in the 'Baby Talk' comic. It seems 'Melody' is a family name, something which is quite rare in Equestria it seems.
Also, for anyone who is interested. Octadad is sat in front of a Wurlitzer Organ in the first panel. Look, he's actually doing something musical for one, now if only I could get Octamum to do something arty!
And for the record, yes my face does look like Octadad's on my University I.D. card. I sneezed.
Sorry to all my 'traditionalist' fans for all the digital work at the moment. Haven't had the time to go out and restock myself with traditional supplies as of late!
UPDATE: Went and corrected the spelling of Octadad's name. It now has two T's instead of three!

I know that feeling all to well.
It would have been epic Trollestia if the student cards said "Octamum" and "Octadad". (And think about the questions that would have raised. )
You want Octamum to do something arty? Well, what she is doing with Vinyl is arty. Somehow. She could also start body painting. Vinyls pale coat would be perfect.
As for me you don't have to excuse for the digital art. The style is the same so the difference isn't that dramatic. And there are good reasons for both traditional and digital art. At least I won't abandon you because of this.
Speaking of drawing supplies: I got some new stuff. We should see the results tomorrow in my drawing for the ATG-Alumni-Group.
