Jim Doran is a self-taught artist based out of Baltimore, Maryland that creates miniature paper worlds in his spare time. He makes these insanely tiny dioramas from recycled containers from small Altoids to sardine canisters complete with little inked paper drawings, which are then cut out and layered into what you see here.
“The things I make reflect my fascination with the sea, the macabre, the divine and the metaphysical. I make dioramas from paper cut-outs, tiny pen & ink drawings and recycled containers. I extrude my drawings in an attempt to give them life in our three dimensional world, which reflects the idea that there are two worlds – the one we live in and the one that lives within ourselves. I put ideas inside of other objects. I am self taught.” — Jim Doran
