Arting for 365 Day 19: Beetle Love

Day 19: Beetle LoveGoal: To create one work of art each day for 365 consecutive days

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a huge fan of bugs – beetles in particular. I love their shape, color and armor-like structure. To be perfectly honest my favorite way to view them is when a variety of types or species are neatly lined up for a photo shoot. This means of course they are dead, which is sad for them, but it really does make for a great picture.

Yesterday I decided to do a set of small drawings of these lovely little guys. I opted to shake things up a bit with color to create bold shapes and lines. The result is an illustrated take on the fascinating bugs.

Side – only slightly related- note: While I think beetles are great to look at, I can’t say I love the havoc the mountain pine beetle are wreaking in the Rocky Mountain Region.
