Dear Insect lovers, I present to you the Arthropod Alphabet. This is a personal project of talented young artist Paula Duță. These 26 colorful arthropod illustrations collection took 2 years to complete. She created all of the drawings with colored pencils on granulated A3 paper. This 50 x 100 cm (19.68 x 39.37 inches) piece is capturing arthropod’s details and complexity while posing them in order to recompose the letters of the alphabet. Although the illustrations were drawn in a realistic manner, this is an artistic representation, not an entomologically accurate scientific one.
I would describe myself as altogether a happy person, dedicated to her work and enjoying life.
I just love these little creepy crawlies. When I decided to change my career from interior architecture to illustration and painting, the first thing I made was a series of insect drawings called Beautiful small things. The amount of details and the complexity that you just don’t see, when you look at these little ones with the naked eye, is so great that I got obsessed with studying and trying to discover their secrets. From that to turning them into an alphabet was just a small step.
As far as technique goes, I made the original alphabet drawing using colored pencils on granulated A3 paper. Actually all of my work gravitates around nature regardless of the medium or style I choose to work in. So, it is not a question of what I prefer because for me they are all the same.
I just started another alphabet. This one is a plant inspired one. I am also continuing whith the series of surreal canvases. I have some other little projects but these are just for me at the moment. 🙂
