Inspired by Insects

Hello and a very happy Hallow’s Eve to you all! I thought I’d make this week’s post a little Halloween themed by featuring creepy crawly inspired designs. I actually really love insect inspired artwork as their often intricate wing patterns and delicate structure make for fascinating subjects to observe.

So I’ve rounded up a little selection of my favourite artwork and products featuring beautifully illustrated insects right here for you to enjoy on the scariest night of the year. Click on the images to visit each designer’s website, or see more details at the bottom of the post.

NEW A4 Giclee Prints

In case you haven’t already seen on my Instagram, this May I have launched a few new A4 Giclee Prints in my online shop! The designs feature my own hand-drawn illustrations of a river otter, a goliath beetle and a wild rabbit. I really do love wildlife and drawing animals brings me so much joy. Hopefully these prints will soon bring joy to lots of homes hung up on beautiful art filled walls. I would love to see photos of them framed and hung so if anyone reading this buys a print, be sure to tag @sky_siouki or #skysiouki so I can see it in your lovely home! They are all available to buy here or click on the images below for direct links to each design.
