Design: Tanaka Tatsuya - Miniature calendar

Tanaka Tatsuya, an artist in Japan, maintains a sense of playfulness and imagination which is all too often lost when we leave the realm of childhood. He creates miniature dioramas using everyday objects and, since 2011, presents them daily on his calendar. They remind us of course of Slinkachu, but also of the Minimiam range of cards we sell.
"Everyone must have had similar thoughts at least once.
Broccoli and parsley might sometimes look like a forest, or the tree leaves floating on the surface of the water might sometimes look like little boats. Everyday occurrences seen from a pygmy’s perspective can bring us lots of fun thoughts.
I wanted to take this way of thinking and express it through photographs, so I started to put together a “MINIATURE CALENDAR” These photographs primarily depict diorama-style figures surrounded by everyday items.
Just like a standard daily calendar, the photos are updated daily on my website and SNS page, earning it the name of “MINIATURE CALENDAR”
It would be great if you could use it to add a little enjoyment to your everyday life.
