You may recognise the beetle from this serious of photos. I made him several years ago, not long after I got access to my first laser cutter. His body is made from an old broken violin.
I had tried to use him in photoshoots before, but I lacked the skill to actually make something decent.
The violin beetle was actually designed to be worn on a back, its legs are placed accordingly. We did a little studio work at The Photo Parlour Nottingham, then we shot at an awesome location in Nottingham centre.
The whole series is based around a post-apocalyptic world, which is a definite style of mine.
