Darren the moth

Darren was a just a moth like any other until the day he flew into an MOD research wing and quaffed some of the brightly coloured sugary liquid he found sitting on a lab desk. This seemed to displease a nearby lab assistant and after being chased around the lab for almost an hour he somehow managed to escape despite feeling very tired and somewhat ill. He wisely decided to retire to his little moth bed for the night.

In the morning he looked in the mirror and emitted a loud squeak (for that is what Death’s Head moth’s do) in surprise at what he saw. He was twice the size – with bulging wing muscles, had grown wing mounted cannons and a new sensor array and now looked resplendent in his strange new black and yellow livery. A strange feeling washed over him that perhaps this was his destiny. He decided there and then to raise an insect army and seize control of the state. We have a new enemy amongst us…

Mixed media piece on 24×30″ canvas. My favourite touch which doesn’t really come across too well on the photo is the crystal resin I’ve poured over the top which makes it look like there’s water dripping down the piece. If you’re interested in it then drop us a line…

Cheers
