In our TRIAD, we originally wanted to explore the Black Cat Alley, a public outdoor gallery filled with street and public art. But after discussing the ideas a bit and realizing how open the project actually is, we decided to focus on one key word: series. Each of the three of us will focus on some kind of series. For example, a collection/series of designed toys or a series of unique art pieces, or design works, etc. Anything really, as long as it's a collective or a series of the pieces under the same umbrella done by the very same artist. We all will be picking three different professionals/creatives that fit our interests best.
Personally, I am not sure yet who to focus on. I possibly want to talk about a less known (not famous, out there) creative. There is an artist who does miniature pop-up books (1), but not much known about the artist themselves, however, they work is amazing. Another artist who's work I follow is Trine Sejrup (2), who does enamels and metal pins, she is a Norwegian designer. And Julia Cissell (3) is an artist and a mini-sculptor who does micro-mini versions of living things found in nature such as her large butterfly collection smaller than a half of a pinky nail (as shown on a photo). Overall, I haven't found anyone else I felt very inspired by who also does a series of something. I will be looking more into different types of artists and try to expand beyond CD realm.

That butterfly is amazing! You might aid your explorations by bringing your search for interesting series back closer to home (MKE). Are the miniature pop-up book artists local? Where can you find out more about them? Any contact info?
