Y las cucarachas shall inherit the earth? They say they'll survive any crash- and maybe a Praying Mantis will too?

Love the reds and blacks and design - terrific! As always- great take and execution - no pun inten... well maybe I intended it.

"The only good bug is a DEAD bug." Great stuff!

Great atmosphere in here!! I thought it was the shell of a burned out building or maybe the twin towers, but then I focused and saw the creatures with legs. Eww!

You can't scamper by without viewing Hardwax's paintings in enlarged version! Crunchy lunchy yumyum! Bugs best barbecued! Hope Slaves haven't contaminated them with insect spray or Hellcat will toxic *vomit*

Whoa! Very effective. Are they standing on their hind legs... ready to take over... Sort of a take on Animal Farm... a Roach Hotel version, if you will. There's sort of a Cadillac Ranch thing happening in the silhouettes... You know, where those Cadillacs are all in row, buried on end. Great textures in the burning red.

Oh, and don't hate Louie too much... He battled his cancer as valiantly as he could. Charlie misses his best friend very much, and he regrets that their last visit together was superficial at best. Louie and Charlie will make appearances from time to time, in prequel (better, happier) times. Thanks so much for visiting and being passionate in your comment. Always means a lot to me.
