Super Fan! (And insect art)
I have this super fan. She's about 12, and she's a giant insect nerd. Every time she sees me at a show, she runs up to see if I have new insect work, and we have a few minutes to chat about how awesome insects are. (NB: At one point, I seriously considered a career in entomology, and was dissuaded when I realized that it would be more work stuck in a lab and less work being David Attenborough).
Anyhow, as an artist, it's fun having a super fan - they encourage you to try new things and get excited about all the awesome nerdy details right along with you. After our conversations, I've been exploring insect art again, and finished a series of mini portraits of North American Insects. I'll be rolling them out this Christmas as coasters and printed cards(above, "Silk Ant"), but it's also got me thinking about a beetle series, and various other things.
Seriously - embrace your inner super fan. It's way more fun to be excited about things, even when they're weird, and it's way more fun to be excited about weird stuff together.
