Creepy Crawlies

This illustration made my husband squirm, but anyone who has hiked the U.P. knows this little guys well. I know ticks are parasites, but I actually find their seemingly random symmetrical marking patterns very beautiful. Work on this project has slowed as I continue to hunt for paying freelance illustration work. But the board game, Evolve!, is still on track for production, so I’ll keep plugging away!

    I admire your persistence, Cora — and share your husband’s reaction to your subject matter in this drawing! 🙂

    Excellent illustration Cora!! I’ve seen hundreds of tick larvae on the crowns and the orbital rings of migrating Thrushes. As seen under the stereoscope, the larvae are translucent. I appreciate your work!
