“Everything is OK maybe”

Duh—how about we start with the goddess of hand lettering? Her work is perfection. Plus, can I mention (again) how we ran into each other in Paris one time? I totally fangirled and asked for a picture together.

“Wherever life plants you, bloom with grace.”

Karla’s work is intricate, colorful, and has tons of beautiful detail. I love that she isn’t “stuck” to one style and has a great variety in her feed.

Ian Barnard – @IanBarnard

Ian was one of the first hand lettering artists that got me into hand lettering back in the day! Look for his videos where he letters with vegetables and ink (yes—it’s totally a thing!).

Courn’s work is perfection, AND is informative in showcasing social activism. She runs a one-woman design and illustration shop, and uses her popular feed to educate people on BIPOC and heart-centered movements.

Gia is seriously the trifecta of hand lettering artists: designer, illustrator, and top Skillshare teacher. Her work is bold and colorful, and when it comes down to it… absolute perfection.

Lauren is a lettering force to be reckoned with. She offers many killer online classes and inspires so many people. I’m still in love with her release, Daily Dishonesty.

Cyril’s work is unique and oh-so-interesting. He tends toward black-and-white works, and the detail he puts into his work is always so striking.

Jordy – @InkAboutIt

Though one of the lesser-known artists in this post, I had to include Jordy’s work because I love her Etsy shop and her super organic watercolor vibes.
