I finished the triptych very early this morning – I’ll post pictures of the whole thing next week after the opening. Here’s is the third piece, which features a tiny, hand sewn book – there’s nothing like the suspense in this book.

    Very cool. I’d love to read that book with an over-sized magnifying glass. I love your progress pictures and fantastic photography skills.

    your art work is just plain amazing, you and your art have completely inspired me to become a better artist and i too am now trying my hand at making tiny dioramas i have made one so far it is a simple cabin deep in a moon-lit forest. i would just like to thank you for just being you and creating your truly unique pieces of art. your art, is better than any other famous pieces simply because anyone can paint or draw but it takes true talent, such as yours to take a small container and craft even smaller images that tell a complete story on their own.
