The Eighth Plague: Locusts (rough)

“4 Else, if thou refuse to let my people go, behold, to morrow will I bring the locusts into thy coast:

“5 And they shall cover the face of the earth, that one cannot be able to see the earth: and they shall eat the residue of that which is escaped, which remaineth unto you from the hail, and shall eat every tree which groweth for you out of the field:” –Exodus 10, KJV

Wrapping up here with the final stanzas of Oingo Boingo’s 1982 “Insects,” which I also used in “Lice” and “Flies.” Lyrics:

Insects make me scream and shout!
They don’t know what life’s about
They don’t have blood
They’ve got too many legs
They don’t have brains in their heads

They know they’ll rule the world someday
They bite and sting me anyway
They bite and sting and SUCK
They bite and sting and SUCK SUCK SUCK
They bite and sting and SUCK SUCK SUCK

Dance (Dance)
Those insects make me –

    Fantastic! It looks beautiful and I love the use of Oingo Boingo. I was a big fan of Sita – keep up the great work. Also, do you ever do book illustrations?
