Sidewalk finds on dog walks – an empty cicada shell, two bees (unfortunately both found dying) and a dead cicada with deformed wings.

I showed my students these sketches today and the “models.”  They were slightly taken aback. I suppose it is a curious thing to pick up deceased or near death insects but they really do make excellent subjects.  Their forms are complex and their lives art worthy.
