Lepidoptera 12 & 13.

Grab your nets!

My intrepid team of biologists have announced two new entries in the Lepidoptera catalogue. Presenting Lepidoptera 12: “Skul” and Lepidoptera 13: “Poppy.”

Extensive research has revealed two unique color patterns for each moth. Skul specimens with the “Oxide” designation display a carapace in blue and black with coppery notes throughout, echoed in its teal and hazel stare. Meanwhile the “Viscera” flavor of Skul is haunted by deep rich reds, blues and purples, contrasting its pale lavender eyes. Both seem to have a rigid metallic edge, to seemingly protect their fragile wings?

It’s hard to miss a Poppy with the “Pomegranate” color pattern. It is a bold specimen, with rich reds, pinks and purples surrounding its fiery gaze. On the other hand, the “Peridot” variety is a delicate and subtle mix of soft greens and blues, edged by a subtle orange. This color harmony is echoed in its pale amber eyes, edged in green.

Individual catalogue pages of these new specimens can be acquired for your own study and viewing pleasure, in a forthcoming limited edition release. Some of our more enthusiastic researchers have provided a select few hand-painted catalogue pages. No two alike, these were documented on location in the field, using inks, paints, and iridescent media to uniquely enhance the design. These have become more elaborate and time consuming over the years, so we have had to adjust the purchase price accordingly.

The full collection will be available through our online emporium this coming Friday, May 13 but be warned! The folios are limited in quantity, and the hand painted pages in particular are extremely coveted, and seem to vanish from the library first. Those who are subscribed to our periodic journal: ‘The Art Bucket’ can find exact details regarding the optimum time to attempt an acquisition (sign up for the newsletter in the sidebar to get the exact drop time).

As always, we thank you for your patronage! On to the specimens!
