365 Paintings – For Ants!

On January 1st, 2013, Lorraine Loots created what would be the first of hundreds of miniature paintings that she’d make. For the year of 2013, Lorraine challenged herself to paint a new ant-sized postcard each day.

Those 365 pieces have since scurried into the wild, having been exhibited in Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa, and found new homes with various owners.

The project has continued though: scrolling through her Instagram and Tumblr is a visual journey of intricately detailed images that are incredibly small.

We just can’t get enough of these. See Lorraine’s website for more information about these awesome postcards, and for details on how to book a painting!
