“Chiroptera” by Q. Rumbley

In the spirit of Halloween here is the first completed drawing of my three piece art card series inspired by using art as a way to work through childhood fears induced by those scary little creatures that still give us the willies in our adult lives. “Chiroptera” is the scientific name for those little winged nocturnal creatures we call bats. I have to say after working on this I’m not that scared of them anymore. They’re actually quite adorable…well, at least the baby furry ones are. 😊

  1. I ❤️ Bats ! not only because they eat pesky little insects that buzz and bite, but because they are sooo cute! I volunteered at a rescue zoo years ago, and took care of some bats: adorable and not scary at all. They ‘squeak’ when you feed them their bottle, and like you scratching their head 😊…Your bat 🦇 is perfect: those eyes and cute little face ! Thanks again for sharing
