Alright ladies, if you love fashion this artist is one you want to be sure to follow. Blair Breitenstein is one rocking 20-something that pumps out bold fashion illustrations on the hour. Her work is inspired by an obsession with Brigitte Bardot, her travel-friendly watercolor kit, and current/vintage runway trends.
Blair is known to use a variety of mediums (lipstick, blush, etc.) in her paintings. Her use of line and color challenges me to break outside of the mediums I always use in my own work. One neat thing about Blair's page is that her posts consist of a mix of her own work, what inspires her, and her daily adventures. In the past 6 months, Blair has moved to New York City, live illustrated at New York Fashion Week, and sat next to Oscar de La Renta to see his show. I'd say her hard work is really paying off.

If you're a fan of Andy Warhol, then be sure to check out this goofy 40-something who's definitely shaking things up in the fashion and art world. Meet Donald, a father, art director for SmashBox Cosmetics, and my favorite weird artist of IG. Donald illustrates amazing gesture drawings using bold colors, minimal but distinct lines, and an array of every day household items as his canvas. My favorite is this vintage white Cadillac turned shaggin' wagon :)
With an appearance on The Today Show, 135K followers on IG, and high profile customers like Kim Kardashian, Donald is building an empire... one gaffer tape roll at a time.

I love the abstract paintings featured in @studiomcgee posts. They accent rooms by adding the perfect touch of bright colors and raw textures. Plus, they post really engaging behind-the-scenes photos of their studio and employees.
