This is basically a praying mantis blog nowdays. If you're here for art, but don't love Mantodea, you're really gonna want to check out my Art Blog.

I fancy myself an illustrator with a terminal affinity for the poetry of W.B Yeats. I currently reside in Phuket, Thailand.
i had a pet mantis when i was younger and i’m so glad they’re one of the only insects i’m really comfortable with and i just really love em
I literally haven’t been able to sleep because I’m worried about how my babies are doing in the wild. I’m so freaking worried and sad and omg crying
I HAVE SO MANY FEELINGS ABOUT MANTISES TODAY and I’m glad it seems I’m not the only one ; A; <33
Awwww carolina mantises are so sweet!! So is the sentiment behind your decision to not cut the grass they were hiding in ; u; <33 aaa that’s so kind!!
Aw, thank you!! I’m in love with her, too!! ; A; I miss her a lot right now! I hope she’s still alive and kickin’ when I go back home at the end of august T AT <33 she’s my first, favorite, fattest little baby.
You know before I started following you they kinda scared me. Fast forward to yesterday I stopped my car to help a nymph that was clinging onto my windshield get back onto a near by bush C: So yeah you helped save a life C:
aaaAAWWW THIS MAKES ME SO HAPPY ; u; thanks for sharing!! And thanks for helping the little bro along! Life in the wild is big and scary for a little nymph, it’s nice to receive a helping hand from an unlikely friend! :D <33
Opinion reiteration: Even spacing is the biggest culprit that kills the emotive/expressive delivery of SMC! Not the lack of spazzy looking chibis.
Spaaacing! I learned a new word.
Thanks, Mallory! Vocabulary is magical.
someone just legitimately offered me live mantis nymphs in exchange for art.
It’s almost embarrassing how “YES” I was about that.
