What has he been up to recently? Slinkachu said back in October, “I’ve just got back from Paris where I was helping to promote ReAct Paris, a conference organised by the European Parliament to tackle the problems of unemployment in Europe, particularly youth unemployment, which in some parts of Europe stand close to a miserable 30%. I was leaving miniature workers hidden around the streets of Paris and asking the question “Why is it so hard to find a job?”

The following  photographs are a couple of examples  taken in Paris for this event.  He shared them on his blog,appropriately titled Little People.

Her month long artistic challenge revealed her creativity as she used all sorts of food to decorate a simple white plate.  Strips of carrots, cucumber, seeds, fruit and vegetables and even sauces were used to illustrate animals, landscapes and whimsical designs.
