Insect

What could possibly be the rationale behind this disturbing practice of attiring one's offspring in insect garb? No doubt naive ill-informed parents claim that such getup is "cute"and see no harm in it at all. But the very young vulnerable child utterly impressionable is apt to develope inalterable insect-like traits after exposure to such invidious stimuli. I have observed several cases firsthand and vouch for the dire nature of this concern.

Oh dear. This reminds me of a New Yorker cartoon last month... something about a mom asking her child, "Well, what did you learn today that would upset me." Some parents are SO ready to be upset about things... but to NOT explain what upsets their children. sigh. Great drawing.

Bravo! Thanks for addressing this huge concern. Warning labels need to be attached to all insect costume boxes...

And, hey, great illustration. Cute kiddles. Peace.

so cute! it makes me want to go trick or treating and dress up as a bug- despite what you have to say about it!

I really like your style! Thanks for visiting my site. That's how my daughter is with cats. Dressed her as a cat one Halloween years ago and even now she'll ocassionally start meowing and scratching everything in her reach.

I really like your illustration and your style! Very well done. As for the "lets dress our kids up as insects" phenomenom....hmmm....well, my suspicion is that the parents think that it looks cute , as in "cute as a bug", while all I can think about is the Metamorphosis, and that crazy Frank Kafka. But thats jus' me.
