I have followed Tatsuya Tanaka’s daily miniature calendar for years and cannot wait to see his new diorama every day on miniature-calendar.com. I am amazed that he has the imagination and ingenuity to come up with a new one every single day! It is incredibly inspiring to me that he sees everyday objects in such different ways. It makes me stop and look at objects I don’t usually notice in a new way.
And of course, me being me, I wonder – how many little figures does he have? Does he make them? Does he use each one more than once? What comes first, the object or the figures?
