Do you want to draw more better? From the insane mind that brought you “Fuckin’ Do It” comes the 3-step, fool proof method for betterness!
STEP 1: Draw everyday
STEP 2: Draw shit you hate to draw
STEP 3: Don’t get discouraged when you compare your work to others
Rinse and repeat!

Chinese Whispers is one name for a game played around the world, in which one person whispers a message to another, which is passed through a line of people until the last player announces the message to the entire group. Errors typically accumulate in the retellings, so the statement announced by the last player differs significantly, and often amusingly, from the one uttered by the first.
These are Flatid Planthopper Nymphs (Phromnia intacta, Flatidae) “playing” the game. This is of course a defensive posture to make the group look bigger and to protect their heads from attack.
The waxy filaments on the hind end of Flatid plant hoppers serves several purposes. It is hydrophobic and help conceal the insect’s body. They can be raised and lowered and fanned out and in my observation are used as a challenge or a means of communication between individuals when they encounter each other away from the group. Probably most importantly though, they are detachable, so if a hungry predator makes a grab for the nymph, they end up with a claw or mouthful of wax, allowing the nymph to escape.
