After my internship was over, I spent a week at my boyfriend’s family cottage and was flipping through some insect reference handbooks I found lying around, which inspired me to draw for the first time in a long-ass time. I chose two of the least terrifying species so I wouldn’t feel the creepy crawlies which each stippled dot.
I used pencil, pencil crayons, and a Sharpie marker on grey paper:
Dogbane Leaf Beetle
According to the handbook:
“Dogbane leaf beetles are one of the cutest species of beetles in Ontario.” -Indirect quote from unknown author of said book.
This beetle’s particularly shiny butt and hairy stems earn him a 75% chance of me ever agreeing to a quote that boasts his cuteness.
Bye for now,
