haha that's the ONLY time I've been stung by a bumblebee too! When i caught one as a kid. I had one cuddle up to my face one night when I was sleeping but I just scared it when I woke up. Bumblebees are the least scary stingy bugs I think. Sounds like you made them angry!

As a bee keeper... this is seriously creepy! I have often been up close and personal with yellow jacket wasps... this bothers me!


Art and artistry well executed, the subject is well done.


emotional impact: creepy! 8 points out of 10

I think you had a little mercy on us in drawing the hive for the honeycomb, if it was a bit more detailed I'd get goosebumps of disgust, as it is though the longer I look the more grim it becomes. Nice piece.

that you drew wasps instead of bees is impressive enough for me, too many people are too lazy to get past whinnie the pooh and take note of the difference between bees(safe) and whasps(not safe)

I know what it's like first-hand to disturb a yellow jacket nest D: Bees I'm allergic to and still afraid of but they're pretty chill. Wasps can be downright volatile.

This reminds me of The Secret World. It's an MMO where you gain powers by swallowing a bee from the realm of Agartha, the World Tree at the center of the Earth. It's about as disturbing as you'd expect.

Reallly beautiful colors on this piece, I feel the Fall season just by looking at it.

The game is really quite good. It is more story-based than most MMOs, and it has these wonderful quests where you get a very simple clue and you have to actually think to come up with the solution. They might tell you to research a fire that happened in a certain year, but YOU have to put the dots together and figure out that the documents are in the public records folders in the town hall. Needless to say, it's quite fantastic and if you're into games like that I suggest it. 

Anyways, keep up the excellent artwork!

It reminds me of The Candyman. One of the first horror movies I (sneaked and) watched as a kid and it scared the bajeezus out of me! XD

Thanks! Yeah I only ever saw the first movie. I don't think I will go back and watch it again either since the memories of how scary it was has to be better than the movie itself.

I am terrified of flying stinging insects. T E R R I F I E D. (And allergic to bees) I'm also fascinated by their nests and overall scary beauty.

As a teenager I was attacked by yellowjackets like the ones in this image and collapsed and had to be rushed via ambulance to the hospital. It was not a good day at all for me. 

I like conceptual high fashion type things and thought a wasp nest would make for some creepy Lady Gaga/Alexander McQueen-ish headdress stuff.

Cool, quit interesting thought process. I can see how one would develop such a fear for bees if you had an experience like that.
Personally I would like to try and draw more of this kind of surrealistic and slightly horror type stuff. Kind of like the monsters and situations in the silent hill series or stuff like the art of Zdislaw Beksinski. I love that kind of art but I guess I don't have the imagination for it or something, I can never think of cool designs like this.
Anyway, congratulations on the DD

Same. I'd really like to do more macabre surrealistic stuff. I like the idea of mixing beauty and beastly things. It can be good venting too. I've been stopping myself though because I don't want to concern people? It's not really something you can show some folks. haha Maybe I shouldn't stop myself IDK.

Not sure I could do the crazy SH monsters, those are always damn impressive! Zdislaw Beksinski's stuff is amaaaaazing.

I bet you could do it. I think your skills could be really suited to some strange Dali-eque uneasy landscape type stuff if that makes any sense. 

And thanks!Submit Comment
