Bugs Rule!

The flower thing is beautiful, but the bug thing is irresistible. 

So with the master Kari Herer as inspiration I set upon my mission. Backyard bugs. I don't normally have a problem finding any, but it's winter and the only crawlies I found to draw were 'hairy mollies' and snails...and they were not going to work. So I went back to my library and dug up one of my favourite reference books (bought when I was a student in the 80's) - The Encyclopedia of Illustration.

and viola!

Not art I know, but a great buzz.

Have a great weekend.
