Handmade Bug Wall Art, stickers, and more for your home

My passion and fascination with bugs, insects, and other critters began in December 2009. On that month, I was bored one day and decided to walk around my Grandma's yard as it was new to me. In this yard, I found a Spiny orb-weaver Spider. At that moment, it was the coolest animal I had ever seen. I was blown away that there was a turtle/spider hybrid animal that I had never known about. The best part of all, I didn't have to travel to another part of the world to some exotic country to see it. It was just in my front yard!

A few days later after returning home, I was so fired up. I wanted to find more amazing creatures, but this time I wanted to photograph them to show the world what they're missing! I bought a DSLR and a Macro Lens and started looking everywhere for more bugs!

Fast forward 8 years, I'm still doing what I do because I think the small insects, bugs and critters of the world are so fascinating, beautiful, and mysterious. I want to spread the word and my images to keep hearing people say what I love best. OMG!

Frequently asked questions
Do you hurt the animals/bugs/insects you photograph?

Never. I don't believe in hurting or forcing any animal to pose for any photo.

What camera equipment do you use for your photos?

I would be glad to share! I use any combination of the following items.
• Canon 5DS R
• Canon MP-E 65mm
• Canon 100MM L Lens
• MT-24EX Flash (diffused)
• Canon 430EX ii Flash (diffused)

Do you capture all the photos yourself?

All my photographs are captured by me and I sometimes get help from my wife by having her hold a piece of paper or my equipment or spotting new friends for me to photograph! (Thanks honey! =] )

Where will my photographs be printed?

• Orders larger than 8x10 will be printed from Mpix or Miller's Photography. They are professionals and print my orders 100% correct every time.

• Orders 8x10 or smaller will be printed on my Canon Pixma-Pro 100 Professional Printer on glossy paper.

Regardless of printing method, both look completely identical as my printer and monitor are calibrated for perfect printing. =]

What are the shipping times?

Although I have 3-5 business days on most of my listings, I tend to print and ship my orders much faster. Most orders ideally ship within 1-2 business days.

Copyright Information?

All copyright and reproduction rights are retained by the artist. Artwork may not be reproduced by any process without the express written permission by the artist.

How is my item shipped?

Prints are safely packaged in a stiff large envelope with a cardboard backing and also inside a plastic sleeve for extra protection! This will be mailed by USPS First Class so you can benefit from the free or low-cost shipping!

Framed prints will be safely packaged in a USPS shipping box with a generous amount of cushion of bubble wrap and/or paper to ensure no damage comes to your art!
