mister red has a few problems
The Illustration Friday group on ipernity has a weekly theme, too, and I just made this one for their theme of "Red." 'Couldn't resist throwing it into the pot for this week's KK theme...
The spiders, from left to right, are a goliath tarantula, a Mexican jumping spider, and a hunting spider of genus Dysdera. Mister Red is from a painting by Walter M. Baumhofer on the cover of Doc Savage magazine, 1935.
I think spiders are beautiful and interesting, but I'm rather strongly arachnophobic, so cutting out all those legs was something of an adventure!
