Running a creative business is tough—especially when you’re running on empty.

I currently manage my own production studio and nonprofit, and I can tell you from experience. As entrepreneurs, our to-do lists are endless, the risks of our decisions are usually high, and we often forgo our own care out of work guilt or shame.

As part of my journey to design a sustainable lifestyle for myself, I have spent the last year cultivating a more stable relationship to my work. This has meant pausing projects that need more space, letting go of clients that do not see my value and giving myself time—time to experiment, time to fail and time to critically think.

Exercising that restraint has been hard. I sometimes want to over-work, I usually want to launch a project when I’m not ready, and I often rip myself to shreds when I make a mistake. But daily rituals and routines that reaffirm my goals and address my own doubts have become life-giving, and that’s where these illustrators come in. Today, I’ve rounded up 10 artists on Instagram that have transformed my day-to-day consumption of social media. I hope they bring you a little inspiration, too.

1.) Ashley Lukashevsky (@ashlukadraws)

Lukashevsky’s bold illustrations serve as daily reminders to be present, take authentic action and always show up with a caring attitude.

2.) Chetna Mehta (@mosaiceye)

Mehta’s earthy prints are centered in wellness and spirituality, encouraging her audience to heal.

3.) Florence Given (@florencegiven)

Given’s posts sometimes knock me out of my chair—her messages are always a reminder to engage in a culture of celebration, not comparison.

4.) Lulu Kitololo (@lulukitololo)

Kitololo’s patterns and sayings are short and sweet, but always joyful and positive.

5.) Victoria Emanuela and Caitie Metz (@onbeinginyourbody)

Emanuela and Metz keep it real. Their posts are typically instructional and eye-opening, nudging the viewer to acknowledge their physical bodies in realtime.

6.) Stephanie Deangelis (@steph_angelis)

Deangelis’ characters are strong, vulnerable and relatable all at once.

 

7.) Hana Shafi (@frizzkidart)

Shafi’s works are honest and unafraid to confront the complexity of our own emotions. Each piece is a reminder that showing your human is OK.

8.) Mari Andrew (@bymariandrew)

Andrew’s illustrations are a peek into your own head. She often draws and writes about the things we’re thinking, but don’t always say.
