Logo design / mascot illustration for a Finnish alternative band Ampikyy,
based on the idea of Verna Svärd, band's singer and songwriter, which was to create a half snake, half bee creature as their mascot (since the band's name in Finnish already means bee-snake). They wanted an illustration that will go with their acoustic, atmospheric sound and lyrics.

The creature itself is a very peculiar one, with scales, wings, a sting and a segmented body, it doesn't sleep nor does it eat, but nonetheless it is a merciless killer, always ready to attack whatever or whoever comes its way for a sole reason that it doesn't like to be disturbed. With its staring eyes, sharp teeth and the power to sense the danger on the very long distances, it is impossible to capture it, let alone slay it...
