Inspections of a Hornworm

“Inspections of a Hornworm”

Lind Stevens

Pen and Ink on Bristol

I was drawn to this study due to the notable physical characteristics of the hornworm. I thought they would work well as design elements, based on the many images I saw online and from photos shared with me by the researcher. The circular composition ties into the circadian rhythm aspect of the study. The pattern consists of the hornworm’s physical elements, in four sections. The adjacent sections feature carefully spaced lines that symbolize light and time, to further connect with circadian rhythm biology. My decision to draft this composition using pen & ink forced me to work carefully and diligently, just as the hornworm does as it feeds.
