10 Vector artists to follow on Instagram

Instagram has recently become my new favourite social media platform, and I have been spending maybe too much time on the app. Apart from posting everyday, I also thoroughly enjoy going through the feeds of other designers and illustrators. There are a few that when I see their work I think "dammit, I wish I thought of that." Here is a list of ten of those vector artists that I always keep up with (in no particular order.) Make sure to give them a Follow to be inspired everyday!

1. @MUSKETON- Musketon is an illustrator hailing from Belgium whose working is pretty amazing. He has a lot of give aways and posts regularly so is definitely one to follow.

2. @THOMCAT23 - It amazes me the amount of work Thomcat 23 puts out on a regular basis. What is really cool is that he shows his process from sketches to finished piece.

4. @DANMUMFORDDRAWS - The level of detail in Dan Mumford's work is astonishing, and he works on some really cool clients.


5. @SWEYDA - Sweyda's work epitomizes patience with the pen tool in illustrator. Truly a master of the craft.

8. THOMAS_DANTHONY - His super simple style definitely stands out. I also love the colour palettes that he uses.
