My roommate sent me a link to Little People, an ongoing street art project headed by a guy dubbed "Slinkachu." He takes miniature figures of people, animals, and objects, and photographs them in real spaces. He is also the creator of Inner City Snail, a similar project using --you guessed it-- snails.
I'm probably really late on finding out about this guy, but I still can't help but love his work. You should really check him out.
