Entomology has been a part of my life since I was a very small child, in fact I can not remember a time where I was not interested in both art and entomology! I started coming up with these comics as a blend of the two, and also to enter into the SciComm world. I want to share my knowledge of the insect world with others in a fun and enjoyable way! All of these comics have basis in real life, which is part of the fun of them, of course they also have a good deal of dark humor! Check out the Facebook Page for these comics and more!

Braconid

Entomological basis for the comic: Manduca sp (hornworms) caterpillars are destructive garden pests, Cotesia congregatus is a tiny Braconid wasp that lays her eggs on the caterpillars, her larvae will consume the caterpillar from the inside and then spin cocoons on the top of the caterpillar, pupate and then fly off to continue the process. The caterpillar almost never survives braconids feeding on it, and therefore rarely makes it to it's moth form.
