It would be fun to see Jeremiah the Imperial Silkworm doing official government things.
or at a fashion show where his own brand of clothes are debuting
what do you imagine him or her doing?

Its not silly stuff at all! Its very inspirational. It prompts the mind of different stories that could be behind this picture. It is well done to let the imagination flow.

"Unlike other silkworms, which used their prized silk to build a cocoon out of, Jeremiah was something more. When his fellow brethren tucked themselves into what would be a long and dreamless sleep, Jeremiah began his work in solitude. When his brothers and sisters burst from their silken sleeping vessels to test their new found wings, they were startled by Jeremiah's appearance. His life's work as a larva only to.....become a larva again? They did not understand. His silken garments rivalled even those that were made from the Great Pale TwoLegs that stole the silk of so many to make coverings of their own. He was not a mainstream silkworm. Not one bit."

-An excerpt from 'Tales of Web and Cloth' by Kim Gallagher

(not really :3 Although it does sound like good inspiration for a full on book....maybe I should write it someday.... )

Haha, he is one stylish silkworm indeed. How he came to be at such a regal status is anyone's guess.

a very thought-provoking image.
(such as...who provides the silk? the poor or their relatives?)

God, I adore this. But then again, I have this thing for creepy, odd-looking creatures in beautifully flowing garb. :|

Nice design. ;) I love the little feet and arms :heart:

Damn, that's good! I like the clawed hands then normal legs- just like the standard caterpillar. Silky robe is perfectly rendered to silk look.
