My Sketchbook: Bugs and Fog

My Sketchbook: Buggy

With spring comes the desire for outdoor living. Tradeoff, I suppose, is that we must co-exist with crawling and flying and creeping creatures - my possible inspiration for this entry. Or maybe it was the lovely bug photo I found, ripped from a magazine and stuffed into my inspiration file. (pre Pinterest)

That's the buggy part of the story. 

Remember how I've been excessively tired lately? I finally came to the realization that tired isn't as much of an issue as brain fog. (which totally explains why it took me so long to come to this conclusion) 

Things are getting better...inch by inch. I can feel it.

    1. Thanks Lisa. I had trouble refraining from making the wings realistic. In the end, I decided to suggest all the detail and add a little.
