Adopt-A-Beetle! For a $250 donation you will receive an ORIGINAL, signed, hand-illuminated 8x10 color painting of your favorite beetle, and a life size version will be included, subject to approval, in the opening pages of The Illuminated Origin of Species. Do you own the rights to a great beetle photo? I will turn it into an illuminated painting for you, and a life-size miniature version for the manuscript. You maintain all rights to your photo, I maintain all rights to the painted image. If you don't have a photo of the beetle you would like to sponsor, I will paint it from an actual specimen. Your contribution will be acknowledged in a special section of the manuscript.
