3,300: German Minipops

without comments

Here’s the last bunch of German Minipops. I enjoyed doing this. Was nice to look at some old ones and do some new ones. It’s not gonna be something I do every week, but feels like something I could do every couple of months. So I’m pencilling in another week of specific nationality Minipops for mid-June.

3,293: German Minipops Week

Guten Morgen, lieblings.

All this week on Instagram and Twitter, I’m celebrating my creation (Minipops) and the country from where I am typing these word (Germany). Some old ones from the archive, and some new ones. I’ll add them on the blog too. Starting right about now:

🇩🇪 This week I'll be presenting Minipops of German people. Some from the Minipops archives, some brand new ones. Here's kuddly Karl Marx. 🇩🇪

There’s a reason for this new spurt of Minipops. I’ll get around to writing about that at some point in the next week or so, I imagine.

But for now: it’s actually a lot of fun doing them again. So here’s six new ones: Bernie Ecclestone, Klaus Nomi, Gareth Bale, David Lynch, Conan O’Brien, and Jim Jarmusch.

I’ve been thinking about doing some more Minipops for a few days. So, yeh, here’s some new ones: the wonderful Yazoo, the awful prime minster of the United Kingdom, and lovely Jürgen Klopp.

More soon.
