I was in Singapore & this artwork was printed on a baseball hat? Idk if you're aware of this? I took a photo but it's on my phone. I can send it to you if you'd like.

I absolutely adore this one. How lovely. It would make a great textile for fabric.

How did I just discover you? How did you do this? Your animals/creatures/insect are impeccable a perfect  balance of real and stylized

How did you do this? Is it ink? Or maybe a pencil?

Wonder why they say they come every 17 years? You certainly hear them every summer,I guess this year we'll see them too! YUCK!!

It's a different genus than the ones you see every summer -- they live underground for 17 years and then all at once come up for a couple months in droves, breed, and die. Totally different life cycle from the annual ones!

Yeah, I've saw the previous batch 17 years ago! Birds catching them in mid-air...they love them. :wow:

I hate when they buzz past your ear, seemingly flying so slow and the shells of themselves they leave behind!:x

They do have pretty wings and the one's I've seen are a nice iridescent green color! :-)

I have one as my avatar to gradually get used to looking at 'em.
