The Dead Fly Project is a series of one hundred paintings, drawings, sculptures, whatever - depicting a dead fly - same fly - over and over again - but different each time by Beverley Conrad. She experiments with different mediums and executes them according to her whim at the time. Sometimes they're pretty, sometimes scary, sometimes funny, sometimes political, and sometimes a fly is just a fly.

Dead Fly 8 - Experimenting with a rough tooth
Dead Fly 8
charcoal on paper 8"x10"
Another charcoal sketch to familiarize my self with the subject. This one is drawn on fairly toothy charcoal paper which I decided I don't like. Some people may, but I don't. It might work better for a larger drawing but dead flies are pretty small.
