I usually sketch plants, but today my son found a dead cicada on the sidewalk and I wanted to draw it. I don't like insects, but the cicada appealed to me. The wings of this bug are magical and they glisten as if they have gold dust sprinkled on them. The bug eyes are charming. My son was nice enough to carry the cicada home for me.
It wasn't easy for me to draw this guy and his tranparent wings, but it was fun. I might try another sketch of him.
