Artist Richard Wilkinson Mutates Insects To Resemble Star Wars Characters

Artist Richard Wilkinson is working on a collection of illustrations that celebrate that trait in both Natural History and modern culture. The first book – ‘Arthropoda Iconicus Volume I: Insects From A Far Away Galaxy’ takes its inspiration from perhaps the most widely recognized subject of obsessive fandom – Star Wars.

Each insect looks subtly like a character, creature or vehicle from our favourite space opera. Some are instantly recognizable. Others take some time to see but you get a great ‘Aha!’ moment when you finally see them! (If you’re a fan of language, the latinised names will give you a clue too!)

Griffin Microsheen Used To Have Some Interesting Shoe Polish Ads In The 1950s

The 1950s were an innocent time in America as far as mainstream advertising went. But one campaign was quite racy. The Griffin Microsheen ads were for men’s shoe polish. But nary a man’s face and rarely a man’s foot ever made an appearance in the campaign. All the ads are from the mid- to late-1950s.
