Mantis Man!

I am currently working an a crazy little project; illustrating tiny races of bug people that train insects as their steeds and war against each other. The idea came to be while browsing through a rain forest book, containing a collection of bizarre colorful jungle bugs. They looked like some kind of absurd war machines. I was compelled to create a universe where they are just that.

Anyways, the project is still in its infancy, but I thought I'd show what I've got so far.


  1. these bugs are hilariously awesome. i'm eagerly awaiting the arrival of the rest of them.

  2. thanks Katie! There's more a comin'!
