The classic tale of the ant and the grasshopper doesn't need a lot of detailed explanation. I left room here for title and type. It was most fun to take on a bug's eye view with overlarge flowers and a skyscape lost in the weeds. I made a point not to watch A Bugs Life, the Silly Symphony or James & the Giant Peach. But as soon as I was done, I ran to the dvd store.

Here is the second of the ant and grasshopper images. I'll be posting the first shortly. I thought since this blog stacks backwards, I'd load the last image first. I had a fun time with the grasshopper here. And it was good to show the dandelions at their seed stage to mark the progression of time.

the winter months

I'm about to post a three image arc from 'the ant and the grasshopper'. This is the last part of the story. I love cross sections, and this was a great opportunity to wander around underground. It's funny how characters can sometimes surprise you. I finished this image then went to my local video store, realizing the design for the ant had to have come from the attendant there. They wear the same facial expression--very odd.
