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!

The two "Killers"

Entomological basis for the comic: Sphecius speciosus (on the right) is a species of Crabronid wasp known in English as the "eastern cicada killer" the females paralyze cicadas for their larvae to feed on, so in fact they DO kill cicadas. Dasymutilla occidentalis (on the left) is a species of Mutillid, with the common name in the USA of "cow killer" as their sting is said to be so painful "it could kill a cow". Although their stings pack quite the wallop, they can not in fact kill cows!
