At first I thought it was a little weird that I could be so into dollhouses, miniatures, and such. The hobby actually seemed to get worse as I went through design school. Of course if you look around online, you'll start to notice that lots of artists and designers alike have been bitten by the mini-bug.
It kind of makes sense though. Some of us don't have the budgets to match our creativity at full scale, some like to constantly design and redesign spaces, some might actually be on a never ending quest to create their own little worlds.
Since many of the artists and designers I've come across also tend to have their own blogs, I never thought to pass the info along, but sometimes this isn't the case and the back story is just interesting enough that in hindsight, maybe I should have remembered to pass it along. So from now on I'm going to post my findings.
Person of interest #1: Walt Disney
He made miniatures, he collected them, he even wanted a section of Disneyland to be entirely made out of them-I am not kidding.

Are you a creative professional who works in miniature too?
