Insect Drawings on Russian Nesting Dolls

Although he is not professionally an entomologist, Raul del Sol meticulously studies the metamorphosis stages of various insects to create works of art. From the egg and larva to the full grown butterfly, he cleverly illustrates the life cycle on Matryoshka dolls. He also scans the knots and grains of the wood to add that to his sketchbook drawings, and then he hand-draws with a pencil and pen on the solid objects.
