Inspiring Illustrators to follow on Instagram

Through Instagram I’ve been able to identify some new favorites. The following is a round up of some who bring a smile to my day. Though there are many many more that I love but I love that these feeds are filled mostly with their illustrations with a touch of their life. Enjoy!
