Our Archive Flashback selection of the week is The Grand Illusion: """The toughest part of planning a diorama is to decide what to put in it. It helps to think of a dioramic scene as you would a photograph: both depict a snapshot in time. The starting point is to decide what story you want to tell. But the question always remains the same: What did you want to take a picture of?" - - Jeff Junker

"Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't." - - Erica Jong

Now before one begins such a project it is important to know that you need two things: time, as it will take a long while to complete and most of all, reference." - Phil Novak
