Bug Journal - Page 18

Three more bugs finished off page 18 of the Bug Journal.
All are ink & watercolor in the Moleskine Watercolor Journal.

We have at least 2 kinds of blister beetles around here. Most of the time I see the gray version but this is a pretty little striped version. This is supposed to be the bad one... not only can it cause a blister, but I was told that if these get in your hay and a horse eats one it can kill the horse.

This was a smaller ground beetle but he still has those wicked pinchers on the front.

These little beetles mimic the velvet ants (or maybe vice-versa).

The finished page.


  1. Wonderful pages! Blister beetle?'re brave to draw that one!

  2. Great pages! I can't believe you are up to page 19 already. Keep them coming!

  3. Super duper post....loving it and the knowledge it brings.
