Monster Models Look Ready for Face-Eating Mayhem

Naturalist and modelmaker Andrew Scott creates sculptures of Lovecraftian horrors, alien embryos, and brain-sucking critters so eerily plausible that you half expect to find them on your next space mission — or simply rooting through your garbage.

Scott makes realistic, incredibly detailed models of trilobytes and insects from PVC, and lectures on arthropods, evolution, and ecology at Vancouver's Stanley Park. But his imagined creatures, many inspired by the art of H.R. Giger and the tales of H.P. Lovecraft, are biofiction at its best — organic-looking beasties that look like they'll slither to life at any moment.
