W12

W12
Up next is a series of postcards that I completed a bit ago.  I used tissue paper, gesso, acrylic paint, and teabags along with the ephemera that fits in the bag.  In several of the postcards I allowed some of the cereal box to show through.

Willard Wigan - micro-sculpture......  The example below is of President Obama and his family sculpted in the eye of a need.  The TED talk is well worth listening to.  Mr. Wigan is not only talented but has a great sense of humor.

Love it and the tea bag is a treasure!

I find that composition very pleasing too - all hangs together but keeps moving the eye along.
I saw some of that AMAZING teeny sculpture last year - had to use a magnifying glass to see it at all. The things people do! But it is incredible skill.
