Inspiring Illustrators to follow on Instagram

I LOVE following illustrators on Instagram, especially ones whose work is full of color and charm. They add such a wonderful dose of inspiration and whimsy to my day. 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!

Lars Book Club: The Artist’s Mother printable quote

Hey-o! Just popping in to see how you’re doing with this month’s book club book, The Artist’s Mother. It’s more of a visual catalogue of pictures and paintings by some of the most iconic artists, but it goes into some details about their mothers.

From here on out we’ll be featuring a quote that you can print off for free (download here) from each Book Club in the middle of each month as illustrated by a guest illustrator. One of my favorite illustrators, , is kicking it off with this one:

“The eyes of a mother are the first mirror we encounter. A good mother provides a true reflection.”

We’ll be going over the book at the beginning of next month and introducing the book for June then as well.
