Gifted artist Karen Libecap has a knack for recreating various animals and well-known characters at remarkably small sizes in her series of pop culture paintings. The illustrations showcase various figures such as pandas, horses and even Yoda from Star Wars in incredibly mini depictions that, despite the size, do not compromise on detail.

It takes a keen eye to be able to recreate the features and attributes of objects and animals on a surface no bigger than a coin but that is exactly what Libecap accomplishes with her stunning pieces. Using superfine brushes and vibrant paints, Libecape recreates hyperrealistic portraits of lizards, pianos, owls, vintage cameras, elephants and peacocks that at close inspection include even the smallest of features such as shading, feathers and even hair.
