At one point during the summer lockdown, my TikTok For You Page was absolutely covered in TikTokers who owned small businesses or sold their art in some way. 

As a former creative myself (read: someone who did slightly above average in her high school art classes), I love seeing all of the beautiful and inventive artwork that people think up. Not to mention, it helps me to find small businesses to support, as well as a way to fill my apartment with art that makes me smile. If you enjoy watching people create as much as I do, here are some artists on TikTok who deserve a follow:

@abbierosie94

Abbie has an Etsy shop, AbbieRosieDesign, where she sells her illustrations primarily as prints. Her designs are cheery and vibrant, perfect for brightening up a neutral dorm room wall. She also sometimes opens commissions for her illustrations, like this adorable family portrait.

@karocrafts

Anya, aka @karocrafts on TikTok, makes the coolest collages I have ever seen. She sells her designs mostly as prints, but she also recently released a t-shirt design and her personal commissions make me want to brush up on my photoshop skills. If you want a sample of how she makes her work, check out this TikTok.

@miahobbesart

Mia Hobbes’s art is gorgeous for any use, but I think people who journal would be particularly interested in her shop. She makes a ton of stickers and printables, which are perfect for filling blank space in a bullet journal or on a pen pal letter. On her TikTok, you can find plenty of videos where she documents her drawing process, which make me want to improve my own drawing skills all that much more.

@moniqueaimee

I love Monique’s TikTok because she shows her art process but also aspects of being a full-time artist beyond that, like day-in-the-life videos and tips and tricks for illustrators. Her shop has a really wide variety of products, from patches to pins, scrunchies, prints, and even wrapping paper. My favorite is this “100% That Witch” patch.

@the.flightless.artist

Isabel’s illustrations are everything I inspire to create. You can buy her illustrations on her Redbubble page, like the “Bugs and Birds” piece, which is my personal favorite. I also enjoy watching her drawing process in her TikToks, because her illustrations are so detailed and often have a story or unique theme. I especially loved it when she duetted TikTok user @tiptonian and drew him as a Greek bust.

@officialhambly

Sarah Hambly is a fashion designer who uses TikTok to document all of her sewing endeavors. She is most known for creating dresses inspired by pop culture, like when she made the Hogwarts houses as dresses. My most recent favorite piece of hers was when she recreated the dress from the Harry Styles Gucci photoshoot.

While I tend to stick to my For You Page, following artists like these on TikTok has made me much more likely to scroll through the Following page to see all of the wonderful art that people are creating. Whether you want to look or purchase, it is always fun to see how creative people can be.
