Everyday For 5 Years This Japanese Artist Creates A Fun Miniature Diorama

Painting anything small is never easy. With intricate designs and details, having the steady hand to work with miniature figures is a must. Getting creative with miniature works was Tatsuya Tanaka from Japan, who decided to create daily calendars using miniatures as the main design. The awesome designs see the small figures mixing with normal size everyday objects to great effect. Vegetables such as broccoli work perfectly as towering trees and toothbrush doubling as a show for the miniatures are just a few examples of fun images captured using these small models. It has also become a passion project for Tanaka, who has continued to work on new designs over the past five years. He explains where the idea started – “The idea came from a comment on Instagram, in which a follower wrote, ‘I want to see the miniature calendar everyday‘,” Tanaka said in an online interview. “So, while I answered by posting something daily, the thought of the project was too good for me to quit.”
