Summer Bugs

As I scratched my first mosquito bite of the summer, I became entranced by the beauty of the buggy images on my tv screen…

I don’t remember what I was doing in 1996, but I missed the release of Microcosmos a gorgeous French film that certainly captured my imagination.  It dunked me right down into the clammy wild world of impossible looking and behaving insects.  The shapes, textures, and colors left me gaping while simultaneously making  me  aware that I needed to shut my mouth. I did NOT want to encourage squirmy flying things to find refuge anywhere near me.-Eww.

Anyway, the film sparked a “People Bug” series. Above is the first effort.

  1. Yes, scratching is part of summer, and your “people bugs” are both creepy and entrancing…can’t wait to see the next in the series.
