You were all really kind and downright cool about my Star Wars-inspired insects posted here last year so I've been encouraged to post more.

I hope you enjoy that "Aha!" moment when you recognize which icon from classic Horror Cinema each insect is inspired by. The 'Latin' names might give you a hint if you can't see it!

I have painted hundreds of these critters, inspired by all aspects of popular culture, from Marvel to Sanrio.

It looks like Godzilla or maybe a Crocodile creature (from 1 of the multiple horror flicks you have).
