3.5”h x 2.5”w
Come and take these tiny framed art pieces, just don’t tread on and/or mess with them! These little armadillos and itty bitty blue bonnets will show off your Texas bonafides, or if you’ve got a Lone Star Lad or Topo Chica that needs a gift that’ll have them saying stereotypical nonsense like “Yee Haw! I’ve got a snake in my boot!,” well, you could do worse than these cute little guys.
Get to Know the Austin Artist: Elisa Wikey
Favorite subjects: food, animals, puns, existentialism.
My work is influenced by picture books, Lowbrow, cartoons, Americana, any culture with a bad attitude, and has been most often described as ‘HA!’ or 'Aww'; it’s been said to flirt with a dangerous sense of humor and is probably fun to look at by children aged 2 to 70.5, the average life expectancy in the world today.
I'm inspired by The Far Side, all the cartoons I watched as a kid (and still do watch), and all of my talented friends in the comic industry. I often describe my work as single-panel comics. They're noodley, cute, irreverent, and subversive with a healthy dose of dark humor.
