When you deconstruct these wonderful yellow bugs by Debbie Jackson, you’ll see how she parlays limited colors and basic cane shapes into delightful insects with quirky personalities and a fashion sense.

Even those who don’t like creepy crawlies will be won over. You can see how she used these canes in other applications on Debbie’s Facebook page.

    Debbie, these are splendid! I’m always drawn to making bugs—maybe it’s all the Creepy Crawlers I made as a kid in the sixties, but these are artist’s bugs! Great design, wonderful palette.

      Love these! And a really interesting exercise in limiting an option (in this case colour and pattern) to foster greater creativity.

        Debbie, these are great. I love your strong graphic sense in these and many of the other pieces on your Facebook page.

          This is a WHOLE new direction for a very talented artist–who is also one of the nicest people you’ll ever want to meet. Go Debbie!!!!!
