Daniel Smith watercolor on Arches 140 lb cold press. 1044 views as of April 2011.
The most popular species of Tarantula kept as pets, and one can see why: inquisitive, personable, powerful yet delicate. An excellent ambassador species to help us all rid ourselves of the fear of all things multi-limbed and exoskeletal. This piece was done as a pet portrait for a local teacher raising the spider among her charges.

Looking rather cool on a t-shirt or hoodie as well:

“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
