Fine art illustration of a Jerusalem Cricket (Stenopelmatus fuscus.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
The Jerusalem Cricket was completed on 6.19.2010. I don’t recall ever seeing these as a kid in Minnesota, but in California I’ve encountered them a few times. Usually when I’ve been in a garden, or flipping over logs and rocks looking for animals. This is one of my favorite insect drawings. The highlights on the abdomen really help give the image that 3D feeling I’m always trying to convey. The drawing is based on a photo by Rhonda’s Thing.
