elisa wikey on hatch.co
Hatch.co (new to me) specializes in maker-made—often customized—art, jewelry, and other objects. There's lots to explore here, especially if you like monograms and other personalized art, but Elisa Wikey's tiny illustrations stand out. Wikey will paint a two-by-three-inch card with any image you want. Hatch shows a few pieces with an ironic literary/pop-culture slant (hello, Ophelia's pool floaties). Wikey's style is so dainty but matter-of-fact; I could see a few of these in a child's room, documenting teeny treasures (a pacifier, a stuffed animal, a Playmobil person, an outgrown baby dress).
