Lorraine Loots’ Postcards for Ants

Check out the Huffington Post story on the teeny tiny art of Lorraine Loots. Most of these drawings are smaller than postage stamps!

Loots, an artist based in Cape Town, explains her project this way:

“I had been painting some miniatures around that time and people would always ask what I was planning on doing with such tiny pieces. ‘Surely no one would buy a painting that small?’ I started to get annoyed with those questions so I would answer that the paintings were made for ants. I guess ‘Zoolander‘ was a subconscious influence. At the same time, I’ve always wanted to find a way to document each day; to make the mundane brilliant.”
