A collection of Portraits depicting Insects and different ethnicities in the month of June 2020 done as a watercolor study series. I was inspired by the dragonfly in the first piece and thought that Bugs should be a wonderful study. When I started adding clothes to the portraits, I decided to add ethnicities as well. 

The project bloomed to become a marraige between bugs and an ethnic portrait study. I studied a lot of ethnicities, from East Asian to Caucasians. Most of these were done in my B5 sized watercolor sketchbook, except the last one with the Greek God Apollo in his garden. That is done in an F6 sized paper over a course of eight days.

The pictures below are set in the order of their creation. These are the best of the bunch. You can also find a video slideshow of ALL the art in the YouTube video below.
