PEZ, real name unknown, is an illustrator, painter and graphic designer from Nantes, France. He had been working as a freelance graphic designer since 2006. Recently PEZ released drawings from his sketchbook on Behance.net and boy are they incredible. To create these stunning illustrations, he uses graphite and the mighty pen. After I saw his work, my jaw dropped from the attention to detail and I couldn’t wait to share it with you.

Yes, rainbow scarabs are colorful and beautiful and yes, they eat dung. Take a minute to appreciate their slightly repulsive habit…
Dung beetles are natural bio-indicators through eliminating waste, improving fertility, and increasing nutrients in farmlands across the world. They also create boost the economy by saving money on removing animal waste and reducing other insect pests. That being said, rainbow scarab beetles are beautiful and although they have slightly gross habits, they actually help make our world a less poopy place. So thank you, beautiful bug.
