Week one-sixty-one of Operation Graphite – theme: Insect.


Creepy Crawly insects, whether you find them fascinating, or disgusting, they are everywhere. The silver fish you find in your bathtub or the black widow under your sink are just the ones you can see. Think of the billions of dust mites ore other microscopic insects that are everywhere, crawling all over everything, even you. That cockroach doesn’t seem so bad now does it?

Contributing invertebrates:

kalebschad – Spider Queen

Shock – Beetle Rancher

The theme selected for week one-sixty-one of Operation Graphite will be: Insect.


To some they are fascinating, to others they are terrifying. While most don’t reap the same hatred as arachnids, many insects are still highly loathed. But for every cockroach and mosquito, there’s a honey bee and a butterfly. This week we explore the biology of the six-legged invertebrates that outnumber us 300 to one.

Please submit any drawing or painting, using traditional or digital media, that fits the theme: Insect.

All art work is due on Thursday, 4.2.14 Submissions will be published the following Friday, 4.3.15
