illustration friday (dusty)


This week's IF topic made me think of the "dust" from a butterfly wing, and then I found a poem by Robert Frost called My Butterfly that I'd never heard of before. It's actually just a little bit sad, but I loved the part I quoted on this etegami. I looked at lots of butterfly photos and found one that looked like it was patterned with little hearts. Really! Except that they were black, not red.
