Living in SE Asia, it was not uncommon to see all sorts of skin whitening "beauty" products. Subway ads, billboards, and 7-11 displays full of the products themselves all touting themselves as the best for bleaching the color out of your skin. One product, Snail White, which I'm sure is full of only the best snail secretion filtrates, really got me thinking. First I thought something like, "Haha, that kind of sounds like Snow White", and then something more along the lines of "Woah, unrealistic beauty standards are pretty crappy". Thanks to a really great thinktank session with some friends shortly after, I was able to compile a solid list of Princess/Insect puns and from there the Prinsects project was born. I hope you find them even half as amusing as I do!
Thanks for visiting my Ardt Blog. You may see a few colors pop up here and there as you scroll down through my work, but for the most part I tend to do mostly pen & ink and pencil illustrations. I'm always coming up with various projects for myself to work on so you'll see a fairly decent variety of subjects. Please reach out to me through the contact page if you're interested in purchasing a print of anything you happen to like or for any commission inquiries if there's something specific you'd like to see.
