A long time ago I made a post of illustrators that I was particularly inspired by at the time. I stand by that list and I honestly still hold them up as pretty great inspirations. But I wanna also make a new list of illustrators that I’m feeling particularly inspired by right now:
@rovinacaiart : delicate, detailed, mysterious, fascinating. makes you want to drift into a portal.
Shaun Tan: strange, entrancing, surreal. and beautiful. makes you feel like you have drifted into a portal.
(These are similar descriptions I know but I feel like Rovina Cai’s work feels more like nostalgia and aching, whereas Shaun Tan’s work feels more like you tilted your head sideways and missed a step. Look, I don’t know. Go find your own descriptions for them, they’re both so worth it.)
@mrockefeller : fun, lively, welcoming. feels like your fave middle grade adventure fantasy book.
@ntamarit : goodness gracious goodness. i just want to stare at them forever. the textures, the compositions, the characters, the colours. the stories.
@nankliang : gorgeous gifs. different moods and emotions but always lovely.
@fanny-hs : made me want to try drawing landscapes again because hers are so beautiful.
So here you go. These are the people I feel like I’m currently most inspired by, or have been over the last few months.
