Meera Sethi. An Ideal Boy - Good Habits. Digital, 11 in. x 17 in. 2010.

An Ideal Boy – Good Habits” is an ironic take on an educational chart used throughout India.
The original chart was part of a popular series of instructional illustrations for children that served as a guide to socially ‘appropriate’ behaviour.
My take on the chart uses irony to draw attention to the normative heterosexual agenda of the original and playfully suggests a re-education: one can be gay and be “An Ideal Boy” at the same time. Borrowing the hand-painted, mis-registered aesthetic quality of the original version, my poster is a double-take that suggests the unexpected.

COBALT BLUE TARANTULA (Haplopelma lividum) ©Gina
The cobalt blue tarantula is a tarantula species that is native to Myanmar and Thailand.
The cobalt blue tarantula is a medium size tarantula with a leg span of approximately 13cm (5”).
The cobalt blue tarantula is noted for its iridescent blue legs and light gray prosoma and opisthosoma, the latter of which may contain darker gray chevrons.
Males and females look the same until the ultimate (final) molt of the males. At this point the male will exhibit sexual dimorphism in the form of a light tan or bronze coloration and legginess.
Additionally males will gain embolus on the pedipalps and tibial apophysis (mating hooks).
The cobalt blue tarantula is a fossorial species and spends nearly all of its time in deep burrows of its own construction, and generally only leave them to find food.
