My favourite social media app has to be Instagram. It's so visual and I just love seeing what my favourite illustrators are up too. I do however also find it totally intimidating and sometimes find it hard to post myself as you want it too always look perfect and co-ordinated. I think this is also where you can learn a lot from instagram feeds you love so here goes with my top 5 illustrators on Instagram.
Flora Waycott - florawaycott
I have been following Flora Waycott a while now and I found her in Flow Magazine. I just love her illustrations. Flora finds inspiration from her "kitchen cupboard to travel and adventure in faraway places"
Ryn Frank - rynfrank
I initially found Ryn Frank on pinterest and her style is instantly very recognisable. Her line drawings are beautiful. Ryn finds inspiration "from the country side and coast where she lives. Inspired by botanics, old Victorian drawings and slow living."
Dinara Mirtalipova - mirdinara
I recently purchased "Imagine a Forest" by Dinara and I just LOVE the folk inspiration within its pages and I totally recommend it. Dinara was "raised in Soviet Uzbek culture, Dinara inhabited Uzbek/Russian folklore that still influences her work."
Rifle Paper Co - riflepaperco
Anyone that loves Greeting cards knows of Rifle Paper Co. and Anna Bonds work is so beautiful and seems effortless. Anna's "signature hand-painted illustrations, vibrant color palette, and whimsical tone" have propelled the brand globally.
Jade Fisher - jadefishercardco
Jade Fisher Card Co. is relatively new company starting out in 2015 and I just LOVE her illustrations inspired by Jade's passion for American folk art.
