Tatsuya Tanaka’s Miniature Calender

Spotted and snapped in a NatGeo Kids magazine May June 2017 excerpt –  Tatsuya Tanaka’s Miniature Calendar pics.

As a man (or grown-up boy) who loves Model Villages which have their own quirky sense of humour and bad puns, I also enjoy Miniature Calendar.

You might want to check out  this daily  visual pun / found object / tiny people website by  a Japanese artist called Tatsuya  Tanaka called Miniature Calendar.

New works are posted daily: http://miniature-calendar.com

Tatsuya’s work reminds me a little of the The Little People Project by British tiny people street artist Slinkachuhttp://slinkachu.com

It also reminds me of all the blog comments from fellow gamers and scrap modellers who also look at a scrap household object, child’s toy, souvenir or aquarium ornament, and think what it might become. This is curiously what many of my June blogposts and people’s comment have been about.

I wonder what’s  your favourite scrap conversion?

Enjoy Tatsuka Tanaka’s Miniature Calendar each day!

Hello I'm Mark Mr MIN, Man of TIN. Based in S.W. Britain, I'm a lifelong collector of "tiny men" and old toy soldiers, whether tin, lead or childhood vintage 1960s and 1970s plastic figures. I randomly collect all scales and periods and "imagi-nations" as well as lead civilians, farm and zoo animals. I enjoy the paint possibilities of cheap poundstore plastic figures as much as the patina of vintage metal figures. Befuddled by the maths of complex boardgames and wargames, I prefer the small scale skirmish simplicity of very early Donald Featherstone rules. To relax, I usually play solo games, often using hex boards. Gaming takes second place to making or convert my own gaming figures from polymer clay (Fimo), home-cast metal figures of many scales or plastic paint conversions. I also collect and game with vintage Peter Laing 15mm metal figures, wishing like many others that I had bought more in the 1980s ...
