Spike, A Stag Beetle Who Creates Art With Markers

July 10, 2017

Meet Spike. Spike is the pet stag beetle of Mandy, an English teacher in Japan. She gives him markers and he draws. Mostly squiggly lines. You can bid on original Stag art pieces on eBay but they're expensive (the first is already over $300 with more than five days left) because people are crazy and have too much money. Me? I never have enough money. It's like my wallet has a hole in it. Mostly because my wallet has a hole in it. I'd buy another one, but that costs money. It's a catch-22. My mom says I'm a catch but I know she's lying.

Keep going for a couple shots and videos of Spike creating his art and one of him dangerously wielding a knife.

    I want to see the video. Fake. They just gave it the stuff then took a quick picture. LOL

  • Geekologie

    I meant to include the videos originally but I forgot. I just added two, the second one is better though because he tosses the pen at the end.

  • Jenness

    OK I take it back. It's Monet in Beetle form come back to life!!!

  • Meh

    Jesus and it still looks better than Andy Warhole.

  • Bubbubsky

    It has just as much merit as most modern human "art".

    Why would I kill my landlord?! It was my knife wielding/artist beetle I tell you!

    Should have been a Dung beetle, 'cause those look like pieces of shit...

  • Huh, one of those pictures is not like the others.

    Nice specimen of a Palawan Stag Beetle (Dorcus sp.), generally regarded as the GOAT of JapaneseBugFights.com.
