    Mark, thanks for posting the recent write up on Lori Nix. She is one of my favorite artists, her attention to detail is impeccable.

    @ joeyjoseph – nice blog(s) :)

    This was equally as awesome when y’all posted about it back in ’08 (Lori Nix’s tabletop photography. I got to see some of the photos on display in DC; amazing work!

    Nicely detailed! But is that a typo or does 6 feet (72″) really count as ‘miniscule’?

    Wow. Gorgeous stuff.

    Gorgeous works are really ruined by the fucking flashing ads (not turnoff-able) on her site though! WTF?

    beautiful, but who left the post-apocalytic lights on?

    If you love these dioramas, or any kind of diorama really, you might like the diorama blog Dioramas!

    I wish I had 1/1000th of the patience it must have taken to construct these scenes.

    I wish I had an assistant.

    I really enjoy the cactus to the rear left of the diorama. Look at that thing! It’s bigger than the chair!

    It’s a diorama-rama!

    Unbelievable detail. Quite a project.

    I’m not sure how using an 8×10 camera makes small things look normal sized, but I’m sure it makes the prints look magnificent.

    Cool. Weird website though.

    The aesthetic really reminds me of something – can’t think of quite what it is. Perhaps a 90′s video game, or a movie/TV show.

    What do you mean “abandoned?” All you need are some 3″ G.I.Joe figures. :)

    Perhaps “Full Throttle”, circa 1997?
