Illustration Friday : Clean!


So... we had a small infestation of what I thought were fruit flies in our house this weekend. Turns out they are a type of carpenter ant. ACK! Even worse! A professional 'bug-guy' is coming out to the house tomorrow afternoon so, hopefully he will take care of the problem. So, in the meantime, we keep the vaccum close at hand to suck those little buggers up!

Great perspective, and a very really sense of impending doom! I love the colors, especially in the vacuum.

Oh no ! What have I done?? Every year in my studio there is an invasion of flying ants. They come from under the floor or something. And since there are zillions of them, there is nothing I can do but vacuum them. I always feel sorry doing it, but especially when I see this sweet little fellow..

This really does show things from the ant's perspective...he's holding on with all his might! We also get all kinds of "crazy bugs" in our house, different kinds depending on the season. It's like some kind of plague...so we just vacume them up. Great illo! That cute face makes me almost feel sorry for him:>

This is great! There is a really nice depth-of-field feel to this. I want to see him animated, his wingss, antenna and legs flopping around. Hehe.
