So few of my pen and ink illustrations from the pre-computer days remain in my personal collection. Part of my problem with creating art is that I never have the chance to amass pieces, and I’ve been neglectful of what pieces I do have.
This is a pen and ink rendering of an ant species (I can’t remember, perhaps Acanthomyrmex ) done specimen-style. By all means, view larger!

Also available in light and dark designs on clothing.

Organic produce slinger by day. Automatic Scribbler and Deliberate Renderer by night.

“Pete Janes entertains the macro insect crowd with meticulous gouache and watercolor specimen pieces, while his more imaginary illustrations seem to be glimpses into faraway realities.”—noted art critic and Portland bum R. Terialspray
