If insects looked like these, would you give a second thought before crushing them in an untimely and cruel death? Little Wings is a series of intricate and beautifully-detailed illustrations about insects by Latvia-based graphic artist and illustrator Alex Konahin. The drawings are dominated by classic elements like scrolls and floral patterns, making the little critters look like treasure pieces from some far away ancient world. Konahin used pens and India ink, along with his unique style, to make the insect illustrations.
