Mike Libby

You don't see much insect taxidermy (add it to your list Wikipedia  Sammy is defining a genre) And I think its because it has to be done in a completely different way. Normal taxidermy you skin the animal and that's really the only part you use and you put it on a sculpt. But with bugs you obviously can't do that. I haven't researched into the method that Mike Libby has used but he does this steampunk thing like Lisa Black. It looks very like how a watch maker would work a lot of using tweezers and magnifying glasses. But yeah this is awesome because it is the first and only insect taxidermist I've seen and they would look awesome in a glass cabinate at the front desk or something like that.
