LIFE OF INSECTS - Technique: Pencil-Ink-Photoshop
The characters in this book are both humans and various kinds ofinsect. They have human capacities and insects' weaknesses. They go torestaurants, drive cars, dance at parties, and discuss Marcus Aurelius.But they are really moths, or mosquitoes, or cicadas, or flies. Theyhave wings and antennae, have to feed off blood or dirt, and can becrushed or swatted to death in an instant. They are Russian bugs, and,metaphorically at least, they are trapped in the web of the greatRussian arachnid, a place almost indistinguishable, it seems, frompre-Glasnost Russia.
