Big Blue Bug - Providence, Rhode Island

It's the biggest bug in the world. Cannot be missed by anyone arriving to Providence from the South via Interstate 95. The blue bug's face is flush with the highway, which is why it is not possible to draw it from the front. I had to stop along Public Street and sketch it from the back, in a hurry, since you are not supposed to park where I did. The Big Blue Bug is 9 ft tall, 58 ft long and weighs 4000 pounds. It sits atop the New England Pest control building. It is just a tad wee bigger than the bugs found in some places in Providence (just a tad).
