At the risk of seeming like I have turned into a bug lover, the next series of posts are basically an ode to all things creepy crawly.
While I would rather all creatures of the insect variety (particularly those that fly) maintain their distance, I have to admit I am growing fascinated with illustrating them.
There is something about the combination of hard shells, hairy limbs and delicate wings that make insects creepy (get it?), yet beautiful.
It was this eery beauty, along with the similarities between an insects’ world and our own, that I hoped to convey with this series of illustrations for the Society of Insect Pathology at uni.
These are kind of creepy but I can’t pull my eyes away. Seriously, imagine if Santa popped out of your chimney looking like that!

I’m seriously enthralled by these illustrations by Marios Lima, titled ‘Monster Headaches’. Check them out on Behance.
