No, Lorraine Loots did. I don't think you understand how small these are. Look at the tip of your pencil RIGHT NOW and think about how minuscule these brush strokes must be. What is this, a painting for ants? Actually… that's exactly what the artist named the series. On January 1, 2013, she challenged herself to create one miniature painting every single day of the year. That's 365 coin-sized drawings in extremely high detail and she doesn't even use a magnifying glass. My eyes hurt just thinking about it.
