The Very Small Revolution by pesare The Very Small Revolution by pesare
- No more oppression! the ant screamed. - No more forced labour! No more bug sprays and flytraps!
- Excuse me, the ladybug interrupted. - How long will this revolution take? I have to be home making soup for my children...
- And I'll become a butterfly soon, said the caterpillar. - And this kind of rioting is hardly appropriate behaviour for something as beautiful as a butterfly.

P.S. A Very Big Thank You to ~pixelspotlight for suggesting and ^Katmomma for featuring this as a Daily Deviation. Thank you! :hug:

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-03-11
The Very Small Revolution by *pesare "The first thing I though when I saw this was 'Too cute for words!' and it definitely is - the characters and little details like the backwards letter on the banner make it so. But reading the artist's description, it also gives a thoughtful and poignant view on the world and our attitude towards it - that nothing will happen if we don't do something." ( Suggested by Pixel-Spotlight and Featured by Katmomma )

I can see why Katmomma featured you as a Daily Deviation. You are very talented. Not only do you create wonderful art, you also obviously have a deep personal philosophy. Your words are thought-provoking, the picture has a double message. Indifference is one of the many things that is killing our planet.

Wonderful idea skillfully realized! I don't know if this work would have the same whimsical feeling if it was done in another medium, say black and white pen and ink, or photomanipulation, etc.

is so beautiful, I'll have to pay more attention next time down to where the ivies grow near the cottage to listen to those tiny little :giggle: ... well the big ones indeed are a bit revolutionary; once one climbed up my leg and bite me in the waist :slow: I was near their cherry tree and came to push me away ;) maybe was a relative of your antz... ladybugs are more friendly, they just tickle you :D

Congratulations for the DD is well deserved dear Pete :hug:

liked the detail of the E, as in your sign; and the other naughty letters too...that are not as the usual ones, that antz must be a visionary. We can draw and write meanings as we want, can't we? :p

Have a sweet day :sun:
