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. .
Spider being painted. .
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. .
Spider in his stage set we built. The shoot in LOVE is out now and you can see some of the pictures here. Kristen McMenamy was AMAZING!
