Just finished the design for my business card! It’s too bad some of the detail will be lost in printing, but here’s a cool hi-res version for all of us to collectively enjoy.

I really wanted to combine the elytra (wing casings for those who are unfamiliar with the term) of a beetle with a heraldry shield, and I’ve wanted to for a good long time. It took me a while, but I found a design that I like a lot!!

It turned out that most of the meanings I liked had to do with flowers (particularly cinquefoils for hope and joy, a magnolia for love of nature, and petunias for calming presence, which I’ve been known to personally exhibit), but the heraldry sire I was pulling reference from also included ants and bees as signs of industry and wisdom! The bees would have looked too busy (hahahaha) on a 2x3.5 business card, so I went with ants instead. After all, ants seem to be where I’m breaking into professional work!

Overall, for how long I’ve been turning this over in my head, I think it looks really wonderful and tight and polished.

Just out of curiosity. Because the film fandom is so much bigger than the book one.

Hey guys!!! "The Bug Pond" is now officially up and started!

It’s a cute webcomic about a cast of bugs just going about their day doing bug things. It will update twice a week (Mon + Fri). There are three strips up right now already!
(The first two you may have seen already if you follow my main blog, but there’s one NEW one too now! Also: Due to the blog’s minimal theme, If you’d like to reblog older entries, you can use the blog’s archive to access specific comic pages)

I hope you’ll check it out!
