Artist Makes 3D Sculptures of Strange Pet Pics

Design Animals Weird Japan

For one Japanese sculptor who goes by the name meetissai, unusual pictures of animals online stoke his creative juices, pushing him to render these animals into miniature 3D figurines. Meetissai sculpts his miniature animals based on viral photos from the Internet, but with a level of precision and detail that rivals artists and artisans. The photos, many of which feature cats (you know, because this is the internet), often capture odd, surreal moments that are transformed into three-dimensional form after being rendered through the sculptor’s own imagination.
