This unique hybrid moth design depicts a rare beauty of the insect
world! Wear or collect this original hard enamel pin to show your love
of nature’s diversity, your status as an entomology buff, or just
because it’s too gorgeous to pass up! 🦋
The moth the pin is based on is a real hybrid
that results from an unusual pairing between Spanish moon moth
(Graellsia isabellae) and Chinese moon moth (Actias dubernardi)
parents. With its beautiful vibrant colors and trailing tails, it is
truly distinct and lovely among insects.
Check out my Kickstarter campaign for more information on the pin itself and how you can help make it happen! Please spread the word & thank you so much!
Aaa so I’m selling a new character I made up on a whim the other day~! I am sellin this little cutie for 30~! They are a hybrid that actually exists irl~! The combination of a Chinese moon moth and a Spanish moon moth resulted in this little guy~ (He’s a bit shy by the looks of it, but he’ll warm up to ya~!)
This Spanish moon moth is flaunting his good looks in the handful of days he has left to live. Unable to eat after emerging from his cocoon, the adult devotes all of his remaining time and energy to reproduction.
5-13-17 || Tbh Masashi is a character I’ve written but never really drawn or even thought to draw. He’s a Spanish Moon moth. Technically he lives at the Treehouse with Gabriel, Noriko, Riku, etc, but really hes been working for Kaneth, the resident necromancer/one of the antagonists. He’s got a thing for Gabby but he’d never move on it.
Anyway, apparently links break posts so you can’t find them in searches, I will be going through and editing all 500+ posts on this blog over the next few days. Also, my apologies for anything looking… wonky. I’m uh… currently situated on the floor on the opposite side of my office because uhhhhh our roof is leaking and the ceiling has begun to sink in and I just so happened to catch it dripping last night. Hopefully the rental company uhm… fixes it. Soon.
Capricorn: Red assassin beetle (Haematoloecha rubescens)
Aquarius: Emperor Dragonfly (Anax imperator)
Pisces: Common blue butterfly (Polyommatus icarus)
Tumblr’s probably making them blurry and awful, click to see them better. I had a lot of fun with these! It was a good chance to pull from all the cool bugs I’d seen already and draw them, and also to find some new ones.
