"Milkweed Beetle" is a bright red insect that likes to hangout on and eat the milkweed flower and its leaves. The longhorn beetle has extra long antennae, which makes these bugs quite cute. And no worries, they don't harm the monarchs who also feed on the milkweed.

Printed on cream thick cotton paper with black ink from the hand carved wood block used for my "Milkweed Beetle" edition. The background orange color was actually printed from a copper plate during my college days! This was a fun way to use up some good paper and make a unique print. It's a "ghost" print because the block is printed with any leftover ink on the block after it's already been printed. This leaves the print a bit speckled and see through. Title, artist signature, edition number, and year of production appear on the front.
