spider, butterfly, fly, weird, insect, bug, psychedelic, moth, mosquito, animal

Having a great love animals, fairytales, and world mythology, Pennsylvania artist Lynnette Shelley fuses these influences into her strikingly unique illustrations. Her artwork strikes a primal chord in many viewers, with almost Jungian associations to the colors and shapes. Her artworks have been likened to images from an undiscovered ancient civilization or culture.

    Brilliant colours and design Lynette. Excellent work!!! Great combo of straight and curly. I like the wee guys that look like eyes curling their tails round a branch. Lovely!!

  • Thanks Stephen. I ended up using this as the album cover for my band’s last album “Fossil Eyes”
