Artist Richard Wilkinson Mutates Insects To Resemble Star Wars Characters

Artist Richard Wilkinson is 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!)
