Entity dishes out the five best female illustrators on Instagram right now.Illustration by Sara Meadows.

Illustrators are taking over the online art and print world. From fashion illustrations to greeting cards, illustrators have become leading influencers in their aesthetic fields. Whether the illustration is an intricate horticulture landscape or an elegant, Parisian woman, art illustrations mix the hyperreal with fantasy, producing images that are not only relatable but thought-provoking.

Apart from illustrations taking over bio pictures on websites, greeting cards, prints and home art, illustrators are also taking over Instagram! Their quirky, beautiful and detailed presence within the Internet culture is helping our news feeds become a little more imaginative.

Meet ENTITY’s top five inspirational women illustrators on Instagram:

BIO: Pugsley is an illustrator, painter and surface pattern designer living in Chicago. She likes to work with her hands and uses traditional materials like gouache, watercolor and pencil on paper. Keeping a sketchbook, experimenting, taking photos and reading a ton are also important parts of her process. Her work is featured in magazines, books, galleries, paper goods and products.

WHY WE LOVE HER: Her horticulture and nature prints and patterns make the perfect wall art: fun and balanced. Not to mention, Kate seriously knows her color palettes. Have you seen her mermaid print?

BIO: Gul is a visual artist, born and raised in Poland, now living and working in London. With a background in both Fine Art and Graphic Design, her interests include editorial and book illustration, fashion & textiles, art direction, typography, pattern design, painting, collage, poetry and autobiographical therapeutic work. She is a longtime contributor for Tavi Gevinson’s “Rookie Mag.”

WHY WE LOVE HER: Her illustrations have that extra emphasis of ladylike glam and elegance while maintaining the essence of the illustrator. Vibrant colors and women with character describe Maria’s playful and alluring work. Plus, she kind of has a thing for women with a red lip. Swoon.


NAME: Kate Bingaman-Burt

The building blocks of her practice include bright colors, hand lettering, inventories of illustrated objects and input and interaction from the communities of awesome people that contribute to her crowd-sourced projects. She is the Associate Director of the Art+Design School at Portland State University and an Associate Professor of Graphic Design

WHY WE LOVE HER: Her incorporation of words, phrases and sayings into her illustrations make us love Kate’s unique approach to her work. In addition, her portraits are straightforward. There’s an underlying realness about Kate’s work that we just can’t keep our eye away from.


NAME: Kristin Texeira

BIO: “I paint to provide proof—for myself and others—of existing in certain moments in time. I paint to capture, document, and preserve memories. I translate the essence of moments through color by mixing up the poetics of people and places. I retell stories through various methods of mark-making using paint, collage, sketching, and writing. This process preserves memories as tangible ‘maps.’ I often juxtapose these memory maps with short captions that form the foundation for the colors I mix.”

WHY WE LOVE HER: Her geometric style! Even though it is angular and rectangular, Kristin’s work is simultaneously soft. It is simple and abstract, but very emotional with a hint of mid-century modern accents.


NAME: Sara Meadows

BIO: Meadows is a textile designer and illustrator currently living in Brooklyn, NY. Originally from a small village in the north of England, she grew up surrounded by rocks, hills, and wild nature. Her print and illustration work takes inspiration from the tiny details in nature and its cross boundaries from fashion to art. She has designed artwork for some leading international brands and is currently working on a personal series of work as well as a few collaborative projects.

WHY WE LOVE HER: Sara’s illustrations put us into the most serene horticulture scenes we could imagine. Her strength is in the details, subtleties, and soft features of each print or pattern. We wouldn’t mind living a day in one of her prints!

  • You saved me a lot of hassle just now.

  • Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Peter.That’s the creepy thing, to me – that this message will work on some parents. AND that the message isn’t found offensive by all other parents.Makes me sad, mad and powered up. Reply

  • Stupid thing to do. It’s done now. Drop the subject and move on. Joel has been humiliated puplicly. This is enough punishment in my opinion. Others will propably not agree.

  • That really captures the spirit of it. Thanks for posting.

  • I’m currently working on two quilts for two new granddaughters. I have some applique to do, then I can finish piecing them and get them quilted. Thanks for the chance to win one of the magazines. I have the most recent issue of 100 Blocks and just love the inspiration it provides. I’m sure this magazine will not disappoint.

  • Ist ja schön, dass man so ne App entwickelt hat… aber wenn die Muttersprache schon Deutsch ist, dann doch bitte auch auf Deutsch halten. Denn das Englisch hört sich einfach nur grausam an. Zumindest kann ich da kaum zu hören.Wenn mans unbedingt auf Englisch haben möchte, dann jmd. bei dem man das “deutsche” nicht so raushört btw: Bei mir hört sich das auch nicht viel besser an, deshalb lass ich es auch sein

  • If you perchance come across some deep fried butter at the fair, please please please let me know. i’ve developed a mild (for me anyway) obsession with it and am dying to know what it tastes like. Spare no expense, leave no adjective unturned, the world wants to know.

  • The truth just shines through your post


  • Beautifully articulated, Elena. Thank you for saying so well what is the very essence of my life, my kitchen, and my food, too. I hope it won’t be too long before I see you two again. (You were among the first bloggers I ever met in real life! Remember that fun potluck?)

  • are you serious? what kind of mindless person WANTS to watch commercials? they will all be on tomorrow and the days after? I think this conceit is completely fake and spouted only by people with a vested interest in advertising. intelligent people will change channels during commercials and come back to their show when they think the commercials are over. or did you not realize how remote controls are used? only the slow witted and the clueless watch commercials.

  • It does not surprise me that Americans can come down so ugly on both sides of these issues.I read Sultan because he continues to write what he has a need to inform us about. I don't agree with everything he writes. Much of it would only make sense if I were affluent and white; oh no it's not racial yet while minorities want to move forward the GOP wants to lead a retreat.How do you get minorities to trust you if you write laws that deny them god’s inalienable rights?

  • I had the same problem and at first used Bodyglide, etc…I TOTALLY solved the issue using a Polar strap instead of the Garmin one.By the way, the Polar strap seems to be more “resilient” to sweat, etc and avoid the “fuzzy HR” which sometimes happens using even the latest “premium Garmin HR strap”

  • Thank you for sharing this information. The 800 number Verizon provided had seemingly nothing to do with opting out of CPNI, and I couldn’t find the link on the Verizon Wireless site. They are so evil.

  • also ich mag die werbung total und ich bin hetero, falls das i-wie bedeutend ist (was ich aber aber nicht ganz verstehe, wenn das so ist…)

  • That’s what we’ve all been waiting for! Great posting!

  • Glad they were of use! There’s a lot of knowledge and written words about the topic that can explain it better than I.It does often confuse me how the one black skin tone in games is often no more than a really dark tan. Sigh.

  • September 17, 2009I know we just ‘met’ today, but please know that I’m lifting you up in prayer. God is a healer, but from what I’ve been able to gather, you already know that. Let’s praise Him in advance for the blessing of good health.xoxo

  • Hi Nick – thanks for commenting. At Savvy Marketers we have always freely passed on tips & advice which we pick up while running our respective businesses.

  • Hi! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against
