This artwork was contracted by geneticist and lecturer at Harvard University, Dr. Stephanie Mohr, to serve as a banner on her Twitter page. After much deliberation, she chose two flying flies from my collection of thumbnail sketches, saying they appeared the most dynamic and "seem to be jumping for joy!" At the pencil sketch stage, we decided to add a third fly to balance out the composition. I rendered the final piece using croquille pen and India ink on Crescent hot press illustration board.
