The Museum of Tiny

I was commissioned to make a 'housing' for a microscope to resemble a museum, for an exhibition about diatoms at the Natural History Museum, London.

I loosely based the design of the housing on the Natural History Museum and the more intricate details on the facades on diatoms.

My white pen ran out during drawing and unfortunately I was unable to get a replacement pen. Annoyingly the pen I got wasn't the same white.
