    I have already several times admired this awesome project of yours but only now found the time to comment properly.

    You know I am a huge fan of insects of all sorts and your fantastic make leaves me even more impressed and drawn to it because of all the awesome surface texture and colours and layers you have created! There is so much to look at and feast the eyes upon! One of the most inspirational pieces I have seen in a long time! Thank you for sharing!
