Artist's Description

Characterized by a steely blue-black exoskeleton, this roach has colonized every place on Earth where humans live, come, and go. A lot of my fascination with insects revolves around the structure and reflectivity of insect wings and exoskeletons. This illustration was originally published in BackHome Magazine, 1993. Technical pen on sketchbook stock.
