LOVE Insects

I couldn't quite believe my luck when Tim Walker asked me to do an insect shoot with him for LOVE magazine
- I LOVE insects!
.
The shoot was inspired by Arthur Rackham and my wasps were a great starting point! He wanted it all to feel
very illustrated, so we got going and made wings and insects.
.

Spider - he had to be made a few times - too big looked silly and too small wouldn't have had enough
impact. It took a while to get him right.

Holly painted some beautiful wings. It was quite a long process working out how to make them look real and
beautiful.
.

The moth coat - so beautiful!


The dragonfly hat - it sadly didn't make it in to the shoot, but I really enjoyed making him though.
.

My wasps - resurrected. This was a very proud moment for me.

The shoot in LOVE is out now and you can see some of the pictures here. Kristen McMenamy was AMAZING!
