School's out! Woo hoo! I did this study of a mantis from a photo- I took a whole mess of photos of one we had here at the house as a pet. My son named her Katrina the Bikini Girl after the notorious American Idol contestant. I'm not exactly thrilled that my eight-year old has a crush on her... anyway, I am fascinated by mantises and how sentient they seem to be. I think they came from another planet, or perhaps they're animatronic. They don't seem to move like anything else. Summer school will be starting next week, and I will be finishing off some of the illustrations from the 32 page dummy book we completed in Sequential Art- Children's Book class.
