At intaglio class several weeks ago, our prof Rudolph Bikkers (, check it out, this guy is mind-blowingly proficient) gave each of us a bug encased in plastic, which we were to draw. These are my results. I did a little research to find a more interesting position that I could place my scorpion in. I'm fairly happy with the final print, and I detect myself and intaglio getting on pretty well in the future.
Don't worry, I'm sure something more conceptual will pop up in the coming weeks.
