When bugs and man collide


I never would have thought that insects and machines would go together, but the etsy seller triciamckellar combines them in some stunning digital collages.

It's an interesting juxtaposition, as both insects and machines are intricately complex, often small, and often overlooked. However, they're fundamentally different in their aspects of creation: by nature versus by man.

Here are a few of my favorites from her shop, you can click the pictures to be taken to their listings. Her subjects are most often luna moths, cicadas, and wasps.


She offers prints in different sizes, varying in price from $14 to $170. Other images involve birds, and her interesting "plans and diagrams". I think one of her prints would look awesome on my wall.

These are beautiful! Probably some existential message here as well, but I just love the pretty colors (and anything with luna moths).
