Illustrations That Are Smaller than a Penny

With incredible precision, California-based artist Sam Larso produces tiny illustrations that are no larger than a penny. To prove it, he places a penny right next to the drawings and documents them on Instagram.

In the images, Larson manages to include great details, color, and shading that require close inspection to fully appreciate. His variety of scenes feature mountains, rivers, bison, cowboys, and many Western styles. “I gather my inspiration from the American West,” he says. “I like to get out into the mountains and desert whenever possible.”

In 2013, Larson picked up a pen after a 5-year break from creating his artwork. He found inspiration by posting a nightly drawing to his Instagram account, @samlarson, stating that, “It was an exercise that held me accountable, and the encouragement helped keep me going.”
