Little People - a tiny street art project

I absolutely love this project documenting the emergence of "little handpainted people, left in London to fend for themselves". Slinkachu's creations are beautifully wistful, their tiny scale contextualised through long-shot photos. It's such a shame that the little people often get stolen - I'd love to find them on my local streets!

There he is - a teeny weeny person posting a letter near the bottom left of the human-scale letter box (on the Little People website, you can click to enlarge the images).

Hope she doesn't feel too much pressure to "Lose milligrams today!"

Careful when you step on that manhole cover ...

There are also some rather artistic snails making their way around London's inner city these days (albeit not completely voluntarily). I wonder if they know Mr Fly?
