15 Hand Lettering Instagram Accounts That Will Inspire You

Are you interested in learning calligraphy and hand lettering? These 15 Instagram accounts will inspire you.

We're almost a full month into 2016 (whaaat?), and I think I've settled on my biggest crafty goal for the year: learning hand-lettering! I've never been overwhelmingly fond of my handwriting, but here's the thing: that has basically nothing to do with calligraphy. Calligraphy and hand-lettering are more art than writing; it's all about learning the correct strokes and muscle memorization. So even if you can barely read your own chicken scratch, don't let it scare you away from giving this art form a try!

A great source of inspiration? Instagram! There are countless talented artists using the platform to show off their latest works, and the calligraphy community is a huge part of it! I've got my brand new Kuretake watercolors all ready to go, and I'm ready to dive in headfirst! In order to help me get started (and you!), here are 15 amazing hand lettering Instagram accounts that will jumpstart your art!
