Today the Department of Phenomenally Fancy Antennae found its new mascot: this amazing little male beetle from the family Phengodidae, also known as glowworm beetles. Their larvae are known as glowworms. Male glowworm beetles use their fancy-schmancy, feather-like antennae to detect and follow pheromones produced by female beetles.
We have some super cool events coming up in September! Next Friday, we have two big shows.
We are part of a Joss Whedon show at Gallery 1988 (happy dance!). We did a piece based on Cabin in the Woods. The piece has a lot of moving parts so we will be posting a bunch of previews in the days leading up.
Also, if you are in the Baltimore area, swing by Baltimore Comic Con. The show is 3 days long and has a nice mix of mainstream and indie comic artists.
