It's sleepytimes now.

This drawing is for this week's Illustration Friday: Insect. I wanted to make an image of myself touching a bug, and i started thinking about those Glo Worm (sp?) toys from the 80's, the ones you hug and their heads would light up. Mine was a bug, and looked just like this with the goofy grin and cute little nightcap. Of course, the actual doll was a bit uncomfortable to hold, because of the hard plastic flashlight inside, but it didn't matter. The simple fact that it could light up a room with it's head made it damn freaking cool. Ah, the 80's.

Heh heh! Yes, the eighties and glow worms. I was more into transformers, but still secretly thought they were pretty darn cool too. Great illustration here!
