I had never seen one like this, I decided to buy it to draw something in them. After doing a series of sketches, I settled on some clean line drawings of a female stag beetle. It was a small tribute to my people, small but strong. I drew the beetle in pencil on the flaps to have some kind of guide and try to be as symmetrical as possible. When I liked the arrangement of the legs and the body, I drew the black line with a brush and textile paint mixed with fabric softener to make it easier to apply on the fabric. Then I photographed my little sister, with it on, playing with some flowers of chives to add color to the photo.
I found this blouse in a second-hand store.
