These wonderfully peculiar creatures are the work of Berkley, CA-based collage artist Kate McCann. McCann uses cuttings from vintage and antique books and magazines, ranging from medical textbooks to old issues of Vogue, to populate her Beetle Blossom Studio with delicate hybrid creatures made of bones, internal organs, parts of birds, animals, insects, shells, plants and even elements of period couture. They’re both grotesque and enchanting. McCann describes her creations as, “part science fiction and part fairy story, these collages are like scientific records of my discoveries.” “As a child, I lived in a wonder world of faeries, witches, science fiction and botany. Not much has changed, the only difference being that I record all of my thoughts and stories in the form of intricately cut and pieced together collages. I like everything old and a little tired so I seek out images and photographs that are antique, vintage and forgotten. I transform these paper memories and records into other worldly creatures who are sometimes static like specimens and at other times are surviving in a unique habitat.” To explore her work further (and we strongly recommend you do) visit Kate McCann’s website and Flickr page. You can also follow her right here on Tumblr at beetleblossom. She also offers original pieces for sale via the Beetle Blossom Etsy shop. [via Doodlers Anonymous]
