I‘m a late bloomer when it comes to Instagram. When we moved to Melbourne nearly four years ago, we made the joke that to be given citizenship in we would have to buy an Apple product at the airport and sign up for Instagram. I’d just assumed that it was a place where people took photos of their food and selfies of themselves at various picturesque locations (Instagram, that is, not Melbourne – although…). It may be that, and people may well do those things for their own reasons, but I didn’t get it.
If you know of any other illustrators on Instagram (or are one yourself!), let me know, I’d love to follow you.
