Instagram Fridays: College Humor video about Instagram cliches

College Humor posted this incredibly hilarious video about cliché Instagram pictures.  I’m definitely guilty of some of these.  Are you?

Note: NSFW because of language.

 

My Instagram cliché pics (as evidenced in the video):

Most elaborate latte ever!

TCBY mmm!

Chipotle. I just got hungry as I was posting this.

Instagram Fridays: Some of my Zentangle Inspired Art

Lately, I’ve been getting into the art of Zentangle.  Basically what Zentangle is the art of meditative doodling.  Since I was a kid, I’ve always been drawing designs on the margins of my notebook, so when I learned that there is a whole art movement similar to my doodles, I was excited.

I’ve been posting some of my Zentangles on Instagram because I realized that it was a great place to share my artwork with the community.  I feel a sense of pride whenever someone who doesn’t follow me likes my work. 😀

 

Note: This piece was done on Ampersand Scratchbord.  It’s also for sale!  Contact me at abbyescart@gmail.com if you’re interested.

Instagram Fridays: Doodling Documentation

I recently started to follow Doodlers Anonymous on Facebook.  As a doodle artist, I find the work featured in the site to be engaging and inspiring.  On August 20, 2012 DA featured an artist named Sophie Roach whose designs are bright and intricate.  Sophie documents her process on her Instagram account as well.

 

 

 

In fact, Sophie has inspired me to document my artwork on my Instagram.

 

Happy Creativity Time everyone!

Instagram Fridays: Rainbowgirl breaks away from the traditional Instagram look

When I was browsing Instagrid for my next Instagram Fridays post, Rainbowgirl’s photographs stood out to me the most from the Featured Users page.  It may be because of the stark contrast of black and white in her photographs that caught my eye.  Or maybe it was that the figures were tiny so I had to click for a larger view because I was curious.  I find her work refreshing because most Instagram posts are full of food art and self-portraits in front of the bathroom mirror and then an artsy filter added on top of it.  To each their own with what people want to post on Instagram but very few have the unique storytelling qualities of Rainbowgirl.

Prints with my Instagram photo? Yes please!

I just discovered this exists!  The little books and stickers are so cute! I can’t wait to take more pictures so I can buy some of the stuff in this site.

In other words, check out my Instagram photos via Instarid.me! Feel free to share your Instagram photos with me as well!
