Harvey Moon wrote in with an update to his Drawing Machine art bot:

It is titled “Bugs Draw For Me” and it combines my Drawing Machine with some code I wrote that tracks a bug’s movement. Using two custom Processing programs, an Arduino, a camera and a cricket, I was able to make unique artworks completely directed by a cricket in a box.

I’m sure all puns about bugs in the code have been thoroughly explored, alas.
