British artist Mark Oliver takes the term "Litter Bug" literally. Using broken, torn, and discarded items, Oliver concocts these whimsical insect-like creatures. There is a Reference Moth whose body and wings are cut from encyclopedia.
Why not wear a lizard on your shoulder? Spotlight artist, Cynthia Chuang of Jewelry10, makes it possible. Vibrant brooches and pendants fit for an emperor, depicting the minute details of creatures and critters are her specialty.
