Day 1 - Bug-a-Day Challenge

For 2016 I've decided to take a page out of Noah Scalin's book and create something everyday for a year. I want to challenge myself to draw or create an insect everyday to help sharpen my skills as an artist and as a bug nerd. Most will be drawings, probably ACEOs (I tell myself now), but I won't restrict myself to just drawings. Also, I think I can count some of my other projects as having fulfilled the bug-a-day obligation I'm placing on myself (e.g. the mantispid book I'm working on), it should count! I'll post them here to help hold myself accountable, but realize posting everyday, even though I intend to complete projects everyday, is probably unrealistic. I'll post as often as I can. Just setting my ground rules and loopholes now, in the beginning :)

I rang in the New Year feeling ill again, but managed this pencil sketch yesterday:


It's a lacewing larva with an aphid.
Such good little creatures.
I have plans for this drawing, cheesy plans. It will show up in my shop soon.

Speaking of the ground rules, I meant to post this yesterday...
so here's to procrastination in the new year! 
Hurrah!
