We’ve mentioned Michael Leavitt previously, he’s the guy who makes artist Action Figures. Unfortunately they are one-offs -unlike New Zealand's own Action Figure maker Ronnie van Hout who back in 2007 made himself cheaper by the dozen - but Leavitt's army of handmade mini-artists (some of them have up to 30 moving parts) is growing. A few of the recent additions are Jeff Koons, Matthew Barney, Takashi Murakami and Julian Schnabel. We’re figuring most of you will know who’s who but for those who don’t, here’s Leavitt's master chart.
