This is a personal project of insects inspired by Fashion designers. This bumble bee is inspired by Mary Katrantzou’s ‘Resort 2018’ collection.
This is the original paper model and completely unique - it is an early model so the internal structure is polystyrene and card and the texture is made up of thousands of hand cut paper tabs, meticulously hand glued freehand to create the pattern. This is the only model I have made in this way so is entirely unique.
Signed, numbered and dated. Limited edition of 50 prints.
Full colour archival Giclee print on Innova white paper stock.
Medium dimensions: 29cm x 29cm.
Large dimensions: 50cm x 50cm

This is my first paper model for a new personal project: a series of insects inspired by fashion designers and victorian entomological illustrations. I was first inspired to do this when I submitted an idea for a Thames and Hudson book on paper craft.
We were asked to create a design based on the permanent collections at the V&A. For this bee I have been really inspired by Mary Karantzou 'resort 2018' collection. Such beautiful and inspiring work, I love her use of pattern, texture and colour.
