My friend Poul finds a lot of weird critters while he's runmaging in his attic...
He even looks for them at the breakfast table.
And he does need quite some magnifying glasses...they are tiny.
The sepia-tone of the backgrounds is made with a pretty strong instant coffee and then he works with watercolour and gouache on top of that.
He found an antique photo album at the flea market where he collects his finds in.
I was indeed blown away by the details and accuracy he manages to maintain in this scale.
Here you can see the album and a new attic find next to the photo-album in comparison with a 1 € coin:
This is how the album looks inside:
Everyday he finds new stuff in his attic and the pages fill rapidly...can't wait to see the finished book!
Thanks so much, Poul and Teresia for the wonderful days and your friendship!!
