i’m jealous of slinkachu


This is proof that great art is all around us, you just have to look for it… and try not to squish it with your shoe. London street artist Slinkachu has a series called Little People in which tiny ‘little hand-painted people are left in London to fend for themselves’. So cool. I wonder if anyone ever finds them or if they just go unnoticed? That’s it, I’m going to check every pop can I pass from now on.

    That’s pretty cool. I love it!

    Haha, I was thinking the exact same thing: http://aramblingmeels.blogspot.com/2009/11/where-little-people-live.html. Slinkachu makes a great case for being uber observant when wandering around the city. Have you spotted his other project, ‘Inner City Snail’ (http://innercitysnail.blogspot.com/)? It’s similarly awesome.

    I love his work. I’ve been jealous of him for awhile. I think of his work constantly because my four year leaves tiny wars and construction sites all over the house not glued, thankfully(:

    You should photograph them! Perhaps you have an up-and-coming street artist on your hands : )

    I’ve been jealous of him for a long time too 🙂

    His work is amazing… and so is your collection! Really fantastic!

    My sister sent me a link to this as a way to up the ante on my young daughter’s playful paranoia, which is documented here:


    and here:


    It pretty much breaks my heart to think of those tiny folk being swept up and buried in landfills.
