Beginning my designing for my insect wall hangings, and here is my Japanese Beetle/Dung Beetle (designed in PhotoShop).I intend to use a rust-dye method to create the two major fabrics (one moving toward gold, the other toward red). The beetles will be photshop pieces printed on fabric.  I plan to add some elements to show the juxtaposition between a beetle that destroys plants and a beetle that clears away the dead. Bizarre? Yes. Should be cool, though.

I’m very much enjoying the design process — I only hope that I can translate them to cloth.
