If you’re looking for an excellent way to add humor to your Instagram feed, following comic artists is the way to go! These 5 comic artists on Instagram are guaranteed to provide you a moment of joy and several humorous ways to view, deal with and laugh at reality!
First up, Dami Lee:
Dami Lee is an amazing “cartoonist-lady-person”. Her hilarious comics perfectly capture the importance of snacking, the anxiety of making minor decisions, the funny nuances of everyday life and the thrill of animals who behave like humans. If you are interested in the joys of halloween, the importance of costumes, and what it’s like to be Seoul-born, California-raised and New York-struggling on a daily basis, check her out.
Next is Alina Bean:
Alina Bean, (she often goes by Beanie) draws sweet, humorous, autobiographical comics about her life! (And she’s had a pretty funny life). Beanie’s comics jump back and forth through her timeline, sharing stories of childhood imagination and sass and stories of adulthood imagination and sass. Beanie is an excellent example of someone who has, throughout the years, truly remained her-(miraculous)-self.
Jimmy Craig draws this amazing comic about animals who can talk! Jimmy’s comics have the answers to all of life’s essential questions, like what is my cat thinking as it knocks my glass off the table? What could dogs possibly be barking to each other? How do spiders establish trusting relationships?
Gemma Correll defines herself as an infamous anti-socialite and pug lady! She’s a tiny aquarius, whose favorite word is Albuquerque and favorite color is red. Her comics range in topic from mental health, Halloween costume ideas, period pain, and portraying history through a comedic lens. If you’d like a realistic, yet humorous, view of social anxiety, feminism, and what it means to truly be yourself, Gemma’s comics are for you.
Last, but not least: Bob Guy
Bob Guy has been working on comics for years and has been drawing since before he can even remember! His world of “pudges”, (funny creatures, similar in nature to humans) is easy to relate to and lose yourself in. He has written a heartwarming tale about Hannah & Morty, a father and daughter who have volunteered to work as Grim Reapers! If you’re curious about what a father and daughter reaper team can get up to, check out his comic.
