6" x 9" Mixed Media Drawing on Distressed, Dictionary Page
I am finishing up the last of my drawings I plan to frame for my holiday show in Albuquerque. I have done a few bee drawings on dictionary pages and they are always a joy to create. I've really had fun drawing this little insect so I wanted to take one along with me to New Mexico next week.
As is usually the case, these guys don't really have characteristics specific to actual bees but are a hodge-podge of bees made from spare parts. My favorite part of this particular drawing is the chubby little guy in the upper right hand corner. I think he is adorable. He was a last minute addition after I remembered reading somewhere that this kind of bee defies nature and shouldn't be able to fly because of his build. What a little trooper! People say he can't fly and he does it anyway - there! Waytago, Mister.
