The Prison Art Chronicles



So back in the spring of 2010 I was watching some documentary on PBS about "prison art", showcasing some pretty impressive arts-and-crafts projects made by inmates using whatever they could scrounge up. And I thought to myself that I could do that, since I'm notoriously stingy and have a lot of free time on my hands.

And thus was born the "Prison Art Chronicles", my occasional series of model and diorama projects, all scratch- built from trash and junk from around my house and workplace. The goal is to create something unique without spending more than a couple of bucks on each.

Do not expect anything "professional" here, by the way, I will be the first to admit that I have zero natural artistic talent.
