I’ve been a little obsessed with dioramas since I first discovered their official existence through the ever mind-boggling creative geyser that a good old Pinterest session can bring.

What is it? It’s basically a 3D ish picture in a box. I’ve been meaning to explore the concept for a while, but finally took the plunge in the last few days, cause you know, taking a leap on 29th Feb seems like a better time than ever to use time differently.

This is quite a smallish piece – the frame is 25x25cm, so each person is only a few centimetres tall.

What was particularly fun was to find a way to overlay them in different depths (shhhh, not telling) and to add all the cats, of course.

Yes yes yes I admit, these are all mine. My preciousses. 6 gorgeous cats. I am a crazy cat lady. Not that you could have guessed from any of my work, no no no…

Thinking of offering these up as potential commissions – what do you think? 

I’m already thinking of faraway landscapes, city scapes, days at the zoo and more! Ahhhhh, if every day could be a leap year day…

Karuski is the nom de pencil for me, Katherine Mengardon - I am a fan of all things 1960s, CAKES, obscure indie pop bands, children illustrations, bad puns and cats. Any spare time goes towards baking mad cakes, drawing families and catified musicians. Find me here too:
