Did you know that some butterflies feed on corpses? The Purple Emperor is among one of the most vicious butterflies, the vibrantly coloured males recklessly attacking even big birds like buzzards. This butterfly is attracted by the scent of anything that is dead and rotting.
A cosmic mermaid among the asteroids for my little sister, who asked me to do one offhandedly about three years ago. It started as a warmup… but it got very quickly out of hand. Even so, it only took me an evening!
Definitely gonna be making prints of this one, so keep an eye out. <3
