This is my digital drawing, originally i photographed these ducks and wanted to do something unexpected or far away from just the usual, so here we have two colourful characters, shame they can't be like this in reality : )

From the series “Please do not kill butterflies”, pins, oil and pencil on paper, original size: 26 x 18 cm. Please, all these dead animals ... Of course, not everyone of us can or want become vegetarian. Sure, in some cases, maybe, the medical experimentation needs them to get results. But we really have to kill them for our frivolous activities? ... Is it necessary to have so many pink pigs die in front of a camera? Do we really need to dissect sharks in formaldehyde, to starve stray dogs tied to a chain in the corner of a gallery, or to make innocent ants go crazy in twisted tubes of plexiglass? To make these drawings, no butterfly was killed.

A commission for an insect lover! Dogbane leaf beetles are specialists on dogbane plants. Dogbane is resistant to a lot of herbivory due to chemicals and the production of latex. To deter herbivores, dogbane plants expel a milky latex that dries and sticks to mouthparts of other insects. Dogbane beetles do not cut leaf veins prior to feeding like many herbivorous insects. They feed on the low-latex tissue of the distal part of leaves.* Females lay eggs mainly on the undersides of leaves, then cover the eggs with a shield to protect them. When the larvae emerge, they consume the shields, drop to the ground, and eat underground portions of the plants before they emerge the following year as adults. *From article by Merrell Peterson
