The worst feeling in the world is when someone you still care for and who meant the world to you, absolutely loathes you, and there’s nothing you can do about it.
Telotoma hayesi! Looks like it&#8217;s got a skull on it&#8217;s pronotum! Death&#8217;s Head Cerambycid?

I hate to say this but I really dislike this type of character design for insects.. it just makes me cringe. I’m sorry. 

yeah this look godawful. let’s give kids a show about bees where the bees look or act nothing like actual bees
fuck that. give me an animated version of clan apis and i’ll give you all the money i can afford

I hate to be a party pooper. But that&#8217;s always been a huge pet peeve of mine. Not only that but the castes are all wrong, totally inaccurate biology. If you&#8217;re going to teach kids, at least teach them right? It just looks too cheesy.Honestly I feel bad I really do. I really don&#8217;t want to rain on this person&#8217;s parade. I feel like a bitch saying that so bluntly but it&#8217;s true. I just wished people made scientifically correct looking insects for a change.

spiders.

they’re like tiny 8-legged cats
how can anyone hate them

Spiders are huge derps, pass it on.

My dad used to work as a mechanic in Arizona and he said that wild tarantulas would just wander into the shop and try and cuddle with the mechanics under the trucks. Spiders really dig car exhaust smell for some reason and they would be like “ah yes this human smells nice let me sit on your face while you’re working or perhaps climb into your pocket and see what you have” and the mechanics would keep shooing the spiders out but the spiders would follow them back like “No why would you leave me human friend??”

THAT IS SO CUTE

Tiger beetle  | ©Rob Ferguson
Tiger beetles are distinguished by having conspicuous eyes, long legs, and frequently brilliant color, a characteristic shape, rapid locomotion, and nervous behavior. Their size ranges from 6-70 mm in length. Their color often includes iridescent markings.
True to their common name, tiger beetles are active predators with aggressive temperament. Adults will defend against predators such as bats, mites, lizards, birds, flies, dragonflies, other tiger beetles, and, of course, collectors. Defensive strategies include running, hiding (camouflage and cryptic coloration), flying, dropping from the canopy, displaying a warning coloration, and chemical defense [1].
Tiger beetles were formerly treated as a separate family (Cicindelidae), now regarded by most experts as a subfamily or supertribe of Carabidae [2].

Cicindela! Beauty!

Will probably do a much better version… but I was doodling some Pyrophorus and ended up drawing this conceptual sketch of one being a police officer. Instead of both spots flashing green, one flashes red and the other blue. Also the paint job to look like a police car. I had fun with this :)(I drew it on the far right side of the paper so it looks like part of it was cut off….I didn&#8217;t have room to keep drawing ha)and he will have a sidekick, a Bioluminescent cockroach! Lucihormetica verrucosa! Will work on him too probably!

Here is my Love Bug illustration for HelpInk.org! They’re a great printing company that donates a part of their profits from each print to the charity of you choice. I love how this one came out, and it’s being sold exclusively through their website. The theme I followed was ‘Loving Others’ and for this one I tried to encorporate heart shapes into each insect’s body shapes, textures, and patterns. Prints are available in a variety of sizes as giclees and postcards and are also mounted on bamboo and birdh.
