International Moth Week - a new hatching

To mark International Moth Week, I present Xenogenes gloriosa Moth Woman. True to her name, she has just burst from her dull grey lino block into glorious colour. The work is part of the Unnatural Histories portfolio, which is currently in development (see also Blog Post July 14).

International Moth Week is celebrated during the last week of July. To learn more, you can visit National Moth Week's excellent website, but their Facebook page is also highly recommended. The photographs of moths that they regularly post are simply dazzling.
