Fine art illustration of an Asian Lady Beetle (Harmonia axyridis.) The illustration is available in black and white or color.
This was the first beetle I drew. I’ve always been a fan of these guys and especially of ladybugs. This was also the smallest subject I had ever drawn, and in fact I actually went out into the backyard and looked for one for reference (something that’s harder to do when I’m drawing a large African predator) but the North American ones don’t seem to have the same amount of white in the front of the shell as Harmonia axyridis does – which is the Japanese or Asian Ladybug.
