Someone make this guy a little lightbox and set him up with a non-sucky camera, please. Maybe send him to forums for wargame miniature painters for tips? He's (?) got some very nice details that are completely lost due to grain and poor lighting. This is a prime example of the sort of thing the web is excellent for - showcasing these little private crafts and pursuits. I hope he gets enough interest that he'll invest some time in presenting them better. I especially like the judicious use of non-twistie-tie materials; it's great that he's dedicated to his medium but will occasionally pop in something for contrast.

I've done similar stuff like this with pipe cleaners for years... though not this prolifically or detailed. Nice to know I'm not alone, though.

Wow, these are awesome. Dude should seriously take some nicely-lit photos and shop his stuff around to some galleries in the area.

I used to make animals out of McDonalds' plastic straws. This is much better.
