Local Artist Holds Record For Smallest Hand-Made Pokémon Sculptures

Meet Ruby Huang, a Guinness Book of World Records holder

Most people are familiar with the classic but extremely difficult ship and a bottle art piece. But imagine making that less than an inch in size. Well, that is what Guinness Book of World Records holder Ruby Huang has been doing since January 2016. The figure that got her the record was a Pokémon character named Voltorb, which measured 2mm x 2mm x 2mm.

“It was very random, I had a bunch of my mini figures go viral on a Kotaku post, which is like a blog. Then the editor of the Guinness Book of World Records contacted me by email, saying they wanted to make more of a gamer art book,” Huang said.

She has dubbed her little figures Pinkymon because they were able to sit on her pinky. Doing these mini figures isn’t the only thing Huang enjoys doing, she also sometimes works as a physician’s assistant.

“I am in a fusion of fields, this is more of what my main state is now,” Huang said. “I still on occasion take shifts here and there at a local clinic. I primarily work in family medicine and primary care and I work with college students.” 

She got into making mini figures when she was waiting to get into graduate school at the time.

“My friend who is a professional artist recommended me to go to the craft store to pick up some clay, and from there I realized I had a knack for it, and I just went from there,” Huang said.

Over the past weekend from April 26-28 Huang was at a local convention at the St. Charles Convention Center for Anime St. Louis. “I have been here once before, I am local and live 20 minutes away from here. I love the anime convention scene, I have done conventions in Philly and Cincinnati,” Huang said.

You can find any of these mini figures on Etsy at lonelysouthpaw where you can see her World Record holding mini figures as well as much more.
