Tarantula Hawk Wasp

Often times we spend so much time and energy avoiding these winged creatures and their stingers that we are not able to see their intricate design and beauty. This amazing little wasp can take down a tarantula with the second most painful sting of any insect (the bullet ant being the most painful). They tend to be non aggressive toward humans unless provoked. = >

With Her Head in the Clouds

So I had a rough concept and started playing around with some oil pastels and this is what came of it. I can’t say that I am completely happy with it; but the overall concept is there and my wife and son think it is cool. She definitely has some flaws; but seeing as how I am married to my perfect woman I guess I don’t feel the need to create one. =p
