2. Sam Larson

Sam Larson is a Portland, Oregon based freelance artist who illustrates amazing works inspired by nature and woodland animals. His largest platform is his Instagram where he shares his illustration process on unique mediums such as coffee cups and leaves. He also creates tiny illustrations with stippling techniques and uses pennies as a comparison to show the scale of his drawings. He combines drawings of mountains, trees, etc. with animals to create unique compositions.

3. Brendan Rogers

Brendan Rogers is a talented illustrator from Virgina Beach, VA that is particularly great at drawing people/portraits. He consistently uploads his drawings on Instagram, sharing with followers the process of his work. The details in his drawings are impeccable; from accurately depicting reflections, to perspectives and spot-on shading that allows his subjects to jump off the page (or screen). In addition to this creative pursuit, he also creates hip hop music (SoundCloud link below).
