Flughumor, aka Dead Fly Art, Fly Art, etc.
I’m currently at Naval Air Station Jacksonville for the Armed Services Pest Management Board DoD Pest Management workshop. It’s been a good meeting – many good talks, and it’s always nice to catch up with old friends. During one session, I almost laughed out loud when one of my colleagues from San Diego slid his laptop over and showed some great fly art images that someome had sent him in an email. Here is a sample:
When I got back to my room that evening, I did some surfing on the net and found many more dead fly creations by the same artist. Here are a couple more:
Turns out the creative genius is a Swedish guy named Max Magnus Norman. You can learn more about him at his blog, http://www.blogcatalog.com/blog/art-illustrated-adventures-of-swedish-artist-max-magnus-norman-a-swedish-blog , and you can find more of his dead fly photos, or flughumor (I assume this means “fly humor” in Swedish), at his Fotosidan gallery.
This is a great idea – can’t believe I didn’t think of this first! I’ve already got some ideas brewing for similar dead insect masterpieces…
