    Maybe I'll revive the cicada plague idea.

    Can the one creature be a plague by itself, or does it have to operate in a group?

    "Summer Plague is the name of the creature, which is part of a species"

    So the species itself isn't named "summer plague," just one creature of the species [ ? ]

    This one confuses me a bit...so can the creature be an annoying pestilence like a plague, or does it actually spread the plague...?

    plague
    1. an epidemic disease that causes high mortality; pestilence.
    2. an infectious, epidemic disease caused by a bacterium, Yersinia pestis, characterized by fever, chills, and prostration, transmitted to humans from rats by means of the bites of fleas. Compare bubonic plague, pneumonic plague, septicemic plague.
    3. any widespread affliction, calamity, or evil, esp. one regarded as a direct punishment by God: a plague of war and desolation.
    4. any cause of trouble, annoyance, or vexation: Uninvited guests are a plague.
    –verb (used with object)
    5. to trouble, annoy, or torment in any manner: The question of his future plagues him with doubt.
    6. to annoy, bother, or pester: Ants plagued the picnickers.
    7. to smite with a plague, pestilence, death, etc.; scourge: those whom the gods had plagued.
    8. to infect with a plague; cause an epidemic in or among: diseases that still plague the natives of Ethiopia.
    9. to afflict with any evil: He was plagued by allergies all his life.


    Sorry if I'm nitpicking. My mind's just gone blank on this one
    Try always to [ i m p r o v e. ]

    Hmmm...well at the end we need a concept where it is comprehensible that the creature is called "Summer Plague"...and this applies to the whole species of course.

    Placeholder/sketches for people's enjoyment.

    I promise the ambulatory carnivorous daisy won't be my final. I'm leaning towards the hot-air jellies. Or maybe I'll come up with something a little more original . . .

    Here's a rough idea:

    Every summer, hundreds of the "Tourist Birds" descend upon small beach towns; germ-filled and disease ridden from their constant travel to the hottest beaches all over the world, they drive townies to madness and death. So much so, in fact, that those living in these towns on a day-to-day basis have started setting up chintzy, tacky false communities a suitable distance from the real dwellings. These fake towns are known as "tourist traps."

    C.O.W. - #090: Summer Plague

    There'll be color soon. Maybe tomorrow if nothing comes up.

    UPDATE:
    A VERY rough color version. I need sleep, so no highlights, shadow or contour other than the original pencils.
