While cicadas are gross and annoying, they’re also fascinating bugs. I had a friend growing up who collected the exoskeleton shells that they shed, and different variations of them all have these unique patterns on their back. Been meaning to draw one for a little while now. Click image for full size.
An acquaintance from college saw it, and wanted a print of it to add to her collection of bug prints. I cleaned it up a bit first, and this is the updated file. Click it to view a print-ready version (19″x13″).
I hope she’ll send me a picture once it’s up on her wall.
