I Mutate Insects To Resemble Star Wars Characters – How Many Do You Recognize?

The human urge to classify and collect enables us to understand and explore the universe – but that same impulse also makes us fanatical about the things we love from the modern world.

I am working on a collection of illustrations that celebrate that trait in both Natural History and modern culture. The first book – ‘Arthropoda Iconicus Volume I: Insects From A Far Away Galaxy’ takes its inspiration from perhaps the most widely recognized subject of obsessive fandom – Star Wars.

Each insect looks subtly like a character, creature or vehicle from our favourite space opera. Some are instantly recognizable. Others take some time to see but you get a great ‘Aha!’ moment when you finally see them! (If you’re a fan of language, the latinised names will give you a clue too!)

Several other collections are in the works: taking inspiration from the world of Pokemon, Superheroes, Ghibli, Sanrio, and Disney, as well as sneakers, vehicles, architecture and anything else we, as fanatics, love to obsess about.
