Prepare to be blown away by Caldwell Linker’s artwork made out of tiny beads. Gems include portraits, words, jewelry and yes, even vaginas.


Graphic-design nerds, take note: If vintage signs make you drool, Daniel’s hand-lettering will be right up your alley. His process sketches are a personal favorite.


Xiola Jensen’s whimsical illustrations of sad women and cats, full of emotion with a killer color palette, are super rad. Teardrops are a common theme.


Follow along with the adventures of John and his partner (fellow artist @jessheberle) in his illustrated panels. The drawings are raw, and he thankfully doesn’t hold back — a recent post shows him sitting on the toilet.


The clean lines and pretty flowers carved into Jenna Vanden Brink’s ceramics make me wish I could throw away all my dishes and replace them immediately with her entire collection.
