Book of Insects

I have been fascinated by insects since childhood - the diversity of their forms, fairytale shapes and colors. Sometimes they are completely unreal like the prying mantis Hymenopus coronatus, which resembles a blooming orchid. Dragonflys and beetles with glistening rainbow shells, the blue butterfly Morfo Meneleus, which I saw in the amazon jungle - they all resemble little works of art.

I also created a pop-up based on this illustration, where the insects have transparent three-dimentional wings.
