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!

See the complete list below! 

Jordan Sondler. I love Jordan’s color palette choices along with her simple style with a touch of edge. We were lucky enough to get Jordan to do our first illustrator collaboration for the Lars Book Club quote printable.

Danielle Kroll
Danielle Kroll. Danielle’s work is a tough early Warhol. I’m drawn to her gorgeous color palette choices and loose painterly style. She’s an absolute favorite! And we’ve had the chance to have her collaborate on our Halloween invitations and Mother’s Day cards.
Monica Lynch
Monica Lynch. Monica contributes monthly desktop wallpapers to Lars and we are so lucky to have her!
Yelena Bryksenkova
Yelena Bryksenkova. I’ve been a fan of Yelena’s work for a number of years. She has a great shop on Etsy too.
Anna Olsson
Anna Olsson. Swedish based, Anna Olsson’s blend of graphic and paper cutting is right up my alley.
Michelle Christensen
Michelle Christensen of My Little Belleville. Michelle has an off-beat style that I’m drawn to. You can tell her imagination takes her to far-off places. I have a number of items from her shop. AND! We’re lucky to have collaborated many times here on Lars.
Dinara Mirtalipova
Dinara Mirtalipova of Mirdinara. I love Mirdinara’s folk vibe, which extends from her native Uzbekistan. Her colors are bold and deep.
Leah Goren
Leah Goren. Leah’s work is just rad plain and simple. I love her palettes and her edgy feel.
Anna Bond
Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co. Rifle is so ubiquitous it’s hard to escape them! But it’s easy to forget that the work comes from illustrator Anna Bond. Her work is impeccable.

Kate Pugsley
Kate PugsleyKate’s refreshing characters make me want to be friends with all of them. Love her work.
Kris Atomic. Kris was one of the first people I ever followed on blogland and I was taken with her interesting characters in fresh situations.
Esther Olsson
Esther Olsson. I love the world that Australian-based Esther has created and I’m so glad she lets us peak into it.
Phoebe Wahl
Phoebe Wahl. I love that Phoebe stays so connected with her audience with the topics she addresses. And! I love her folk style.
Elizabeth Graeber
Elizabeth Graeber. DC based Elizabeth translates her beautiful illustrations onto many different surfaces. I’d love one of everything!
Samantha Hahn
Samantha Hahn. Fashion illustrator Samantha does such imaginative work with colors. And shhh! We’ll be partnering with her on some fun summer projects. Stay tuned!
Dallas Clayton
Dallas Clayton is on a mission to spread happiness through his work. I heard him give a keynote at Alt last year and he certainly knows how to use it for good. Love his enthusiasm.
Yas Imamura
Yas Imamura of Quill and Fox. Portland based Yas has such a fun, whimsical style. I love her topics and sentiments on her cards.
