Bat Drawings

For several months, I became fascinated with bats as creatures and as symbols.  Bats are contrarians to much of the animal kingdom due to the fact that they are nocturnal, that they sleep upside down, that they are flying mammals, and that they use high frequency echo location to sense their surroundings.  I was also very interested in the precision of their flight movements while appearing very sporadic.  The world-wide cultural tradition of using bats to symbolize evil became an element to both emphasize and contradict.
