Honey, I shrunk Monet

Cult activity
‘Lo child!
These 3D models have kind of taken over the place around here, haven’t they?
If that kind of thing isn’t as interesting to you as the other nonsense I get up to, let me assure you that I am assiduously browbeating myself each and every day on your behalf to write and draw more. There’s a new chapter of Shadowplay out, specifically and especially for you, the three people left in the world who want to read a chapter book released in installments. But for the moment, this is the project that is setting my brain on fire:
This is what I’m calling a 3D painting - a projection of Monet’s “Water Lilies and Japanese Bridge” into a diorama about four inches square and two inches deep. I’m excited about doing more of these with other historical paintings, possibly even some with people in them! Here’s a side-by-side comparison of the original painting with the model:
There’s a video on Instagram if you want a better sense of its size and construction. I’d like to do these custom for other people, so if you’re interested in a handpainted, 3D reproduction of your favorite classical art, hit me up! I’d expect something like this to be in the area of $80-100 depending on complexity and features like lights, moving parts, etc.
I’m having trouble coming up with an elevator pitch for this idea - it takes a lot of explaining to even get across what I’m talking about! You can see more in-progress pictures of this piece and some of our thinking behind it on the blog.
