Insect


Magicicada septendecim, also known as the "Seventeen Year Cicada", is a true testament to the order, sequence and pure patience of mother nature. Every seventeen years, these creatures emerge from their encasements -- only to experience but a few days with their newly grown wings. Although most of them use this brief time to make love, some choose to wage war.

I know the cicada well, and the 'music' they make. Your illustration shows me a different side to their personalities, funny and cute, and educational.

A fantastic illustration, and an interesting lesson on the nature of the insect. Well done.

I was hoping you would've named them or drew rocket launchers on their mandibles. Just kidding of course. Excellent work as usual. Love the line work and the digital touch.
