Jim Dingilian has created beautiful sketch-like work using smoke, qtips, and bottles!
His medium is soot produced from candle smoke, and his brushes are Q-tips.
Each recycled glass bottle serves as the canvas for a unique creation.
â€œThe miniature scenes I create are of locations on the edge of suburbia which seem mysterious or even slightly menacing despite their commonplace nature,” says Dingilian.
When found by the sides of roads or in the weeds near the edges of parking lots, empty liquor bottles are artifacts of consumption, delight, or dread.”
I think it’s likely that he has an instrument with a smaller quill than a conventional Q-tip for adding intricate details.
