As I sit here writing this, all I can hear is the song of the cicadas just outside the window. A chorus really, that we hear all summer long here in Provençe, where the cicada (cigale in French) is a huge icon, almost a spokesinsect for the Provençal people.
Which is why I decided that it was time to draw some. Got my pencils out and started scribbling ... final results were more more graphic than realistic representations of the insects, but I didn't think they turned out too badly:
Drawn in pencil in a large moleskine journal. And here they are, scanned in, 'cut' out from their original background, and close-up:
Ended up quite liking them, so will take some time to figure out what to do with them next. Meanwhile, I wish you a lovely, musical day. Cheers.
