Richard Wilkinson : Insects from a Far Away Galaxy


Richard Wilkinsonis a British artiste who grew up like many of us : with Star Wars ! His career in illustration, after studying Art at college and a few diversions into electronic music, sound production and music video production, led him to natural history. 

Richard works extensively in editorial illustration, often for science-based magazines such as New Scientist, Nature and Aeon. His illustration style has always been informed by Natural History Illustration and so the Arthropoda iconicus project (the “official” name of this project) was a natural step for him. And what a project ! Some of this amazingly detailed Star Wars inspired insects are quite obvious to spot, but others, you have to look at it very carefully to get it. But when you see it…

Arthropoda iconicus is a perfect mash-up between Richard’s love for Star Wars and nature, please follow him on his website and his Instagram account !
