mini me

If you saw my post about terrariums, you know that I love miniatures. It goes back as far as I can remember. My sister and I used to take our plastic horses and set them up in the weeds and grass in the backyard then snap away with our trusty polaroids. For all you youngsters, a polaroid is a type of camera that the picture actually pops out and develops in front of your eyes! Who knew that we were budding artists back then, I still have some of the pictures do you think I can sell them for millions? Doubt it! Check out some of these artists that I found.

I saw the Michael McMillen exhibit at the San Jose Museum of Art and fell in love. He even included smell-o-vision! You actually stood on a step stool and looked through the peep hole of a door to see the store inside. It was amazing.

The actual miniature

FastCompany also recently had an online article about miniature artists. Here are a few of my favorites. You can see many of the artists right now at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York. Oh well back to reality…
