    ‘Arthropoda Iconicus': Insects Based on ‘Star Wars’

    Don’t worry, Richard Wilkinson is not some kind of mad genetic engineer who’s created a breed of insects based on a popular feature film franchise. Instead, he’s an artist who’s selling prints of just those types of insects, for a collection called Arthropoda Iconicus.
