Cockroach artist series

Zoo York board, originally uploaded by Stephen Halker.

The ZOO Artist Series boards just came out! Mine was chosen for Zered Bassett. I thought it would be funny to use some of my Scientific Illustration techniques on a cockroach, but all the guts are completely imaginary.... Now that i think of it, that's not very different from my regular Scientific work...... completely imaginary.

as a side note: I did a lot of research for this piece and found out:
* A cockroach can live for up to 30 days with its head missing.
* There is not way of telling if a cockroach has emotions, because it's exoskeleton prevents it from expressing them.
