Links Next Door (16/05/2014): Art on Instagram Edition

May 16, 2014 · in Links Next Door

Every week, I’m compiling a list of links that entertain and delight me, challenge and baffle me. I’m doing this as a sort of curating project, but also as a way to keep the blog afloat as I keep working on my dissertation.


Yes, I’m spending a lot of time on Instagram and while I love looking at pictures of food (yum!) and beautiful landscapes (jealous!), I have also been fascinated by artists and illustrators using the site to promote and showcase their work. Here are, in no particular order, a couple of artists you should definitely check out whether you enjoy scantily-clad boys, superheroes, drag queens, or any combination thereof:
