We all enjoy a Kardashian, a Jenner, and even a Hadid on our Instagram feed (oh, that rhymes!). And sure, we'll throw a like at your photo of the Grand Canyon or those bachelorette party shenanigans, but sometimes it can all get a little old. If you're hurting for a fresh perspective or something new to scroll through and get lost in, how about some trill illustrations?

We rounded up a list of 10 insanely incredible illustrators to follow on Instagram. Some of their work appears within the pages of NYLON itself, and one even works in television animation. Click through the gallery and be prepared to see some rad drawings of some famous faces, gorgeous life-like women, and, of course, some fashion influences.


Jennifer Williams is a Brooklyn-based artist documenting kids and their personal style. This makes for a fun and colorful Instagram that showcases different personalities through their clothes, which range from James Franco leggings to flower crowns.
