Fine art illustration of a Giant Stag Beetle (Lucanus elaphus.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Giant Stag Beetle was completed on 10.26.2013. I’m not sure why I’m so obsessed with beetle – although I’m hardly along in this as there are legions of beetles enthusiast all over the world, some of whom are collectors and sadly are helping push many of the larger, more remarkable species to the brink of extinction with their desire to own a living or dead specimen. But I’m hoping through conservation efforts and education they can still be preserved. The drawing is based on a photo by Jim K and was used with his permission.
