i’m jealous of paul chiappe

Yep… actual size. Seriously. Edinburgh based artist Paul Chiappe creates these teeny-tiny, itsy-bitsy, beautiful little pencil drawings based on found vintage photographs. The drawing talent alone is amazing, but then to do it at such an insanely small scale?! love ♥

    That reminds me of the Spanish artist Olmo Cuño. His project “Notas” (notes) are tiny hand painted copies of famous works of art. It’s amazing to see them up close.

    Here is a link to his work: http://olmopia.blogspot.com/search/label/NOTAS

    Wow, I was sure these were photos!
    I love the weirdness of his themes and the way some of the subjects are treated as if they were ghosts or faded memories…

    These are INCREDIBLE. Slightly unsettling, definitely ghostly, and the scale makes them really unusual.
