You might recognise Fuchsia MacAree‘s gorgeous shapes and colours from Aer Lingus? in-flight magazine Cara. Fuchsia occasionally lends the publication her map drawing skills and can also be seen in the pages of Totally Dublin. If you like good-natured Irish satire and saturated colours, give Fuchsia a follow/vote. She’s also very funny when she ain’t promoting her technicolour wares.

HAPPY FRIDAY NIGHT

Kitty Moss is the type of artist whose work will no doubt dominate the picture books we’ll read to our future toddlers. She has featured in BASH magazine and does a beautiful line in greeting cards and wedding invites. Her Instagram is a meditative and magical experience. (With loads of cute dogs, always a welcome bonus.)

Holly Shortall‘s work is familiar to many Cosmopolitan.com for her tongue-in-cheek celebrity portraiture. After Kim Kardashian had shared an illustration Holly drew of the star and husband Kanye on that controversial cover of Vogue, this young Dubliner found her career taking off. We talked to her some months ago about that entire whirlwind. Follow Holly for her interpretation of the latest red carpet moments, and some reimaginings of Kim and Kanye as Disney couples.

Fatti Burke‘s typographical genius has featured in the pages of BASH, and her Instagram features examples of her projects and more. The more being some pretty fab hair selfies – Fatti knows how to fishtail/Frozen/everything imaginable braid. Here’s a stunning Valentine’s Day commission she completed a few weeks ago.?

Chelsea Bonus CV includes illustrations for the very fabulous famous-brides-to-idolise feature BASH ran a few months ago. Her work is impeccably detailed and oh-so-pretty. Check out her rendition of the beautiful Cinderella actress, Lily James, below.

Follow Conor Merriman for his graphic novelesque interpretation of fashion illustration. We love his intense lines and have to hand him some serious applause for making the Olsen twins looking like the high priestesses of a faraway galaxy. It’s the least they deserve.
