Derrick Lin illustrates the daily grind of ad agency life on his blog called 1:87. The artist uses miniature toy figurines to recreate the common situations advertisers face in the office and infuses them with a little extra wit.

Lin considers himself an observer of the tiny moments. He uses his observations as inspiration for his blog. Some "tiny moments" include a creative (aka a figurine) practicing yoga with the caption "I'm zoning out. I'm trying to find my center." Another moment includes a toy figure editing its work by lawn-mowing a sheet of paper. The photo is captioned as "Edits make me feel like starting over #writerproblems."

Advertisers or any people working in the creative industry will find this blog thoroughly entertaining and relatable.
