"I drew this image using an old playboy as a reference, obviously I changed up the face and added the bug. I love drawing kitsch, early B-movie inspired images, and I love insects - so needless to say I was as happy as a pig in a pie shop. I was also thinking how perhaps in another universe it would be normal to watch naked women wrestling giant bugs for entertainment... am i right?! No? Just me then." - Paul Jackson

ABOUT THE ARTIST:Paul Jackson
draws the natural world in fascinating ways. In his glitch
drawings, for example, he juxtaposes wild animals with computer
malfunctions: one side of an ape’s face is photorealistic, while the
other appears smeared and distorted.
Paul also combines living and dead creatures in his works, portraying a
lioness, bear, or a “little jackal with his skull coming out,” as Paul
writes on his website. “But he’s fine now.” This juxtaposition is
important to the artist who wants people to see something curious and
unique when looking at his work.
