Beetles fascinate me...

I was inspired by Nick Bantock for this collage. He is the author/artist of the Griffin and Sabine books. I actually met him when he came to our garage sale a couple of years ago, right after I started making collages. I told him that I loved his work, and asked him if he'd take a look at my collages. That is SO not like me! I guess I just decided to grab my opportunity... Anyways, I had Nick Bantock captive in my basement, giving me a critique. I had literally just started doing some art again after a LOOONG dry spell, so to have this input was amazing. He is quite the character, and his energy and intensity is unlike anyone I've ever met.
