Bombus Terrestris (Bumblebee) Card Design

Just finished the bee illustration that I have been working on. I LOVED drawing the bee's hair, it was so much fun and such an amazing texture.

So my plans for this illustration is to turn it into a card for my Etsy shop (one of many card that I have ideas for). The theme will my take on 'You're The Bee's Knees', and there's a few more bits and pieces that I need to draw for this card before I put it together. I'll be posting updates with where I am at on this card design on Twitter. Next thing I'm going to be drawing is honeycomb!!

EDIT: May 2014
This design is now up for sale on my Zazzle Store: LINK
The store has a wide variety of products such as cushions, greeting cards, keychains and phone cases.

Bumblebee - Bombus Terrestris

Just a little sneak peak into a card I am making at the moment. I've always wanted to do more insect and botanical illustration, so I'm including bits and pieces in my work from now on. So this will a card with a bumblebee included within the design (the rest will be a surprise!).

I've enjoyed researching into bumblebees, especially when you have to type bombus (the scientific name for the bumblebee family) into search engines and giggle every time. And they are so cute!!!

I also am making more of an effort to update my twitter feed with little bits and bobs. The link to my twitter  is on the side of this blog if you would like to follow me! I'm also on facebook (and a bit more interactive on that), so if you would like to follow me on that here's the link: FACEBOOK
