Thanks guys! I was invited to submit work for a "Millenium Bug" themed show and I did tons with creepy-crawlies in at the time.

Those creepy kids with their giant wall-mounted caterpillar! Aiiiee!

I love the way the boy is gently coaxing the big beetle out of its box.

In Japan, of course, bug-collecting is a popular hobby amongst young children and one that has had a long history. One can buy all kinds of bug-collecting paraphernalia, including brightly-coloured plastic cages to be worn around the neck. In fact, Pokemon was based on the concept of bug-collecting; I'm pretty sure, though, that I'd rather have a room full of Pikachus than massive spooky insects.
