thinking small...really small

Willard Wigen creates his art on the tiniest of surfaces. Like in the eye of a needle, on the head of a pin or on an eyelash...Willard’s micro-sculptures have become so minute that they are only visible through a microscope.






How does he do it? His story is pretty amazing...and he has a book being released soon.

Check out his online store at his website to see more about Willard Wigan and his amazing micro art. People just never cease to amaze me...

That is absolutely mind-boggling! Wow. It's all so wonderful, but that owl in the eye of the needle really blows me away!

Thanks for telling us about this!

Ooo, I love that owl one. I guess that guy has pretty good eyesight to do that kind of art.
