Without Flowers by MoonsongWolf Without Flowers by MoonsongWolf
Hope is the only bee that makes honey without flowers.
-Robert Green Ingersoll


A commission for ~Snapdragonfly-Ink, for contributing to *HeWhoWalksWithTigers's FREELAND donation drive.

She asked for a drawing similar to this one: [link] - featuring a Hunt's bumble bee (Bombus huntii), representative of ecological health, community, and hope. I decided to go with a slightly different pose, based on iconic imagery of the titan Atlas who supports the heavens. I wanted to represent these important symbolic qualities of the bee as being supported, rather than sacrificed.

Medium: Coloured ink, graphite, and ball point pen

Artwork is © *MoonsongWolf
This was created for ~Snapdragonfly-Ink's use only
