Skree! Skree! Happy Fall! ( #inktober ?)
Here is possibly the happiest critter I've ever drawn! This is “Night Flight” - ballpoint pen/mechanical pencil illustration on aged paper. I’ve been working on this piece since mid 2017, coming back to it every couple of months to add more tiny details. I am especially fond of the bat’s fuzzy tum.
My little batty is no species in particular, he was a freehand drawing loosely based on a pallid bat. His insect friends are male and female luna moths. This was my first attempt at drawing any sort of moth/butterfly - tricky!
PSA: Please don’t be afraid of bats. They’re not out to get you. They eat lots of mosquitos!
Bats are friends, not draculas. 🧛♂️
Prints available: I have a run of 25 8”x10” artist’s proof matted to 11x14.
