The creation of the Inimini inch scale miniatures, rooms and scenes came
naturally to Bill. In a 'former life' he worked
as a set designer for a number of community and
educational theatres in North & South
Carolina, Pennsylvania and Vermont. The shows he
designed covered a wide spectrum. From the
stylistic and simple (David & Lisa and
You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown) to the
multileveled and complex (Cactus Flower
and Child's Play). From the height of
fantasy (Once Upon A Mattress and Peter
Pan) to the depths of reality (The Effects
Of Gamma Rays On Man-In-The-Moon Marrigolds
and Come Back Little Sheba).|
One critic wrote of his setting for The Effects Of Gamma Rays...:
"...The technical aspects of the show were about as flawless as the performances.
The same attention to detail that Bill put into his scenic designs has gone into his miniature creations. And, mixed in with the detail you'll find Bill's own unique sense of humor (as can also be found in the plays that he has written). Don't be surprised to find a carrot-eating gopher in the vegetable garden - or a wall full of pinholes where the dart board is hung in one of his room boxes (not every toss hit the bullseye... or even hit the dart board for that matter!).
Bill combines his creativity, design experience and unique sense of humor to create each original Inimini miniature.
