Kama4

Japanese painter Takumi Kama imagines what would happen if natural habitats were destroyed to the point where insects were forced to adapt to entirely urban environments.

The “Comi-mushi” is similarly imagined as taking on the patterns of comic strips in bookstores and convenience stores. See more images below.
