    Thanks so much for this wonderful list of recommendations! I followed every one! As an aspiring illustrator/artist/designer I think it’s important to make sure my news feed on Twitter, Instagram, and other social networks contain inspiration, art tips, and the working habits of other artists to keep me on track.
