    Philippines-based artist Jordan Mang-osan harnesses the power of the sun to create beautifully detailed works of pyrographic art. Pyrography (or pygrogravure) is the art of decorating wood or other materials with burn marks resulting from the controlled application of a heated object. For Mang-osan that object is a magnifying glass, which he uses to direct the heat of the sun to etch dark marks onto prepared sheets of plywood. He creates pieces that range from grand landscapes to detailed portraits. It’s a slow and painstaking process required great skill and patience. Each piece takes Mang-osan several months to complete.

    "The artist, who is an ethnic Igorot hailing from the mountainous Cordilleras region, stays close to his roots by working with raw, indigenous materials and focusing on subject matter that celebrates the rich heritage of his people and his country.”

    To check out more of his pyrography pieces, visit Jordan Mang-osan’s Facebook page or head over to Fine Art America,

    What is this? A center for ants?!

    Today the Department of Teeny-weeny Wonders is delighted to share Postcards for Ants, an awesome ongoing project by Cape Town, South Africa-based artist Lorraine Loots. Every day Loot creates one exquisitely detailed and utterly itty-bitty painting. The project began on January 1, 2013 as a personal 365-day challenge, which means she’d created hundreds of these amazing miniature works of art.

    When Cape Town was designated as the World Design Capital 2014, Loot decided to do a second year of tiny paintings, 365 Postcards for Ants, this time using her home city as the theme for each piece. Although each original painting has already been spoken for, Loot creates 5 prints of each day’s painting, which can be ordered through the project website.

    To view more of Postcards for Ants visit Lorraine Loots’s website or follow her on Instagram, Facebook or right here on Tumblr at paintingsforants.
