In November 2013 my collaboration with New Scientist was extended, when I was commissioned to do a new article piece for the December edition. Craig Mackie, art director at the magazine suggested the theme of the article revolved around the brave ants and their willingness to defend fellow ants regardless of their foe.
The image description was to make an ant look proud and brave, and heroic. It was suggested that the ant be featured in a suit of armour. This was discussed further and the full suit was transformed into chest plate and several other key elements to maintain the appearance of the protection.
