With this series the goal in mind was to create a narrative that would evoke sympathy for a creature which most people would find horrifying. She is a spider, which are commonly terrifying. But she is also a mother. Her appearance is ferocious, sharp metal and machine appendages but at the same time her organs are exposed. Only separated from the outside by a layer of glass. In this way she is delicate. Monstrous yet maternal, formidable yet fragile.

To look past her appearance is to see a parent with her children. A determination to defend her children against harm. And finally a willingness to give her life for her offspring however in vain.

Either that or I just wanted to make a bad ass spider.
