Daniela Steinberg is an 18-year-old artist and illustrator working mainly in collage. This virtual zine/comic consists of various illustrations of personified butterflies and moths that are inspired by their real-life counterparts.
The coronavirus pandemic has so many of us heading outside and connecting with nature in ways we never have before. For Daniela, this lead her to re-evaluate all the ways that her relationship with nature manifests. She found herself thinking a lot more about butterflies and moths--insects that are so vital for many ecosystems but that also seem to occupy a realm of magic. Through these mystical illustrations and virtual renderings of moths and butterflies, she seeks to intertwine the two worlds that she occupies the most right now: the internet and the outside.
We all need some wonder and magic right now. Why not find them in these bugs?
