One out of every four animals on earth is a beetle!
It is estimated that there could be as many as 3 million beetle species living on the planet. Scientists have described 350,000 of these.

So. In other words. There are plenty of specimens out there, and beetles are the subject of my project entitled simply “Coleoptera“.

  • Coleoptera: Greek koleon ‘sheath’ + pteron ‘wing’; Aristotle already called beetles ‘koleopteros’ (κολεοπτερος) to refer to the hardened front wings protecting the membranous hind wings.
  • English beetle means “the little biter”, derived from Old English bītan, “to bite” (Patridge 1958)

Got a project?


I’m a Scottish illustrator based in Sweden. I like Aquariums, Kung Fu and Batman. But you’re not here for that are you? I design and draw stuff.
Get in touch and maybe I can help you with your project!
