The Internet Can't Get Enough Of This Giant Beetle's Artwork


When it comes to art, beauty can definitely be in the eye of the beholder.  Sometimes, the artist is a pure genius and makes everyone just marvel at the beauty.  Other times, it is an acquired taste to appreciate the beauty and others just say whats the big deal.  And other times, well other times, the artist is just a giant beetle and everyone loves it.  

So feed yourself a little culture today and check out the work of this amazing new artist on the scene: Spike the Stag Beetle. BuzzFeed News reports that stag beetles are a popular pet in Japan, and Spike's owner fell in love with the idea of having one after seeing them being sold at a festival. She brought Spike home, and they've been co-habitating peacefully ever since. Then last week, Mandy was playing with Spike and decided to see if he could hold a marker. An artist was born!!

Spike likes making and sharing art. Let's have fun together! #stagbeetle #beetle #spikethebeetle
