My Favourite Artists on Instagram
I’ve recently got into illustration, mostly from wanting to decorate my new flat. I now follow quite a few on Instagram and have pinned loads on my Pinterest account. I especially recommend my Feminist Illustrations pinboard if you fancy taking a look at some new illustrators.
Today I thought I would share some of my top favourite Artists and their Instagram accounts.
All art is the property of the artists on Instagram.
Frances Cannon (@frances_cannon)
I first heard about Frances over on Grace Latter’s Instagram account – her tattoo is a Frances Cannon illustration – and I just love Frances’ unique and feminist drawings. They’re edgy, realistic and most importantly beautiful. She is also incredibly body positive and I adore that.
Laura Callaghan (@lauracallaghanillustration)
Another recent find on Instagram was Laura’s account. Bursting with colour, silliness and beauty I cannot wait to purchase something from her store to decorate my room. Her Instagram feed really is to die for.
I have been a fan of Jemma’s work for about two years now and own several prints from her Etsy shop. Colourful, positive and girly I love the way she draws and all of her designs.
Jo Paterson (@_jopaterson)
Pink is one of my favourite colours – particularly Millennial pink, gotta say – so Jo’s feed is just perfect for me. Her illustrations are of everyday items like Johnson’s Baby oil and doughnuts, plus her pictures thrown in make for a really eye-catching mix.
Pipples Doodles (@pipplesdoodles)
I really have a thing for bright, colourful prints and this is probably the most colourful out of the lot. Slightly quirky and reminiscent of children’s TV in the 90s, this store and Instagram feed will have you scrolling for days.
Polly Richards (@pollyillustration)
This illustrators feed is a little more muted compared to the others but I still adore it for the shapes and different focal points they use. Mushrooms, leaves, quotes and feminism. A real mix.
Simone Papion (@simonepapion)
If you’re looking for self-portrait illustrations similar to that of Virginia Woolf and pretty patterns – I recommend the boobs and Marie Antoinette ones – then you’ve come to the right place. Simone does a real mix.
Ever thought a girls body would look great as a flower pot? No, well Suze clearly has and it’s true! Using body shapes and flowers pots for inspiration this is a truly unique account and I love it for its quirkiness.
