Hybrid Creature Portraits
The Vladimir Stankovic 'Cephalopodoptera' Series Merges Animals

By: Marina Rotharmel (Star) Aug 19, 12

The Vladimir Stankovic ‘Cephalopodoptera’ series interestingly combines elements of insects and sea creatures.

These portraits look like something that could have come out of Wes Anderson’s film The Life Aquatic. Stankovic uses tons of dream-like colors to create these magical beings, and they even glow and flicker in some spots.

Just to make the series even more terrific, Stankovic gives a back story, saying on his site that “Cephalopodoptera is a newly discovered order of species, a link between molluscs and insects. They live in the deepest underwater caves of the oceans worldwide.”

These portraits are definitely inspired by a childlike wonder and imagination. It’s not often that one sees the merging between bugs and animals that live within the depths of the ocean.
