Creature Jungle Fantasy

There was no By-Product yesterday because I lost my Internet connection, probably because of high winds and tree branches damaging a cable somewhere. You have to think about how fragile the infrastructure is that holds our global web together. Now it's back and so am I. This vintage picture is one of a very few in my entire output that depicts insects. I have a pretty butterfly but also a shiny green beetle, just a little bit grotesque. There's a lot of creatures out there, far more than anything you could imagine, just on this one little planet.

The official title of this picture is "Enchanted Jungle." Watercolor on illustration board, 6" x 9", June 1990.
