Giving Your Right Brain a Regular Workout

Follow Friday: Redbubble Resident Artists on Instagram

Welcome to the first installment of Follow Friday, a new feature on the Blog in which we highlight Redbubble artists that you should follow on Instagram to get a behind-the-scenes looks at their processes and their inspiration.

To kick things off, let’s start with the home team so we’re focusing on our current and former Redbubble Resident Artists.

You can follow the artists by clicking on their handles or any of the images below.

Feels so late! I guess that’s what happens when you’re in transit for almost a full day! Spent some good quality time #drawing in a particular #sketchbook. Inflight #doodles keeping me company ✈️✏️
