Cool! But the structures are relatively simple box-like ones though. I'd be more impressed with "Tiny cathedrals made of paper".

They're nicer than the little boxes on the hillside.

You know the ones: The little boxes made of ticky tacky.

Interesting stuff. It has a fine enough detail to make up for its minimal design, but it is rather similar to models made by architects all the time. My favorite creator of miniature art? None other than Edward James Olmos. Or was that just a movie? It's hard to say after so much eggnog.

It's too bad she won't live! But then again, who does?

The real nifty thing is scrolling up from the end and watching how the artist's technique takes leaps at certain places. TFTL.

This is very nice. I think the simplicity is deceptive, it would be easy for even these shapes to appears clunky and hackish. As it is, almost all of them are elegant with great lines.
