Incredible Miniature Paintings of Pop Culture Icons on Matchbooks

Bigger isn’t always better. Case in point: the miniscule-but-adorable work of Joseph Martinez, which we recently spotted over at Design Taxi. The Denver-based artist paints tiny portraits of pop culture icons — everyone from Darth Vader to Frida Kahlo — on appropriately tiny canvases: matchbooks in varying stages of use. After the jump, check out a few of our favorites from the series, and then be sure to head on over to Martinez’s website to see much more of his great work.
