In May we experienced the fun of drawing yogis who posted their pictures on Instagram during the Shanti Ashtangis challenge. We picked a post, drew it and posted the drawing on Instagram @_das.art_. We really enjoyed drawing the yogis and they seemed pleasantly surprised by this little gesture. It inspired us to draw all kinds of posts and before we knew it we had this nice collection of drawings. And it is still growing!
BE INSPIRED >PICK >DRAW>POST
We are so thrilled by this source of inspiration ánd the interaction with other Instagrammers that we started a new Instagram account named: @inspiredbyyourpost. The idea? To collect and share the work of everyone who is inspired to turn Instagram posts into drawings. This is how it works:
- Pick a post you love
- Draw it (or use any other art technique)
- Post your creation on your own Instagram account and:
- tag the original poster
- tag us @inspiredbyyourpost
- and / or use #inspiredbyyourpost
WHAT ORIGINAL POSTERS THINK
We were a bit nervous. Would people like their posts to be turned into an illustration? How will they react? We’ve posted 20 drawings so far and this were some of the reactions:
ashtanga_sister This is so fantastic!!! I love it!! Thank you so much! I’ll show it to the man who owns the house and car. 💚😍💚
ine_yogini❤️ very honored! The illustration is so beautiful 🙏🏼✌🏼 May I share it?
vintageinteriorxxOh, so lovely pic 💛
JOIN INSPIRED BY YOUR POST
Isn’t this wonderful? We love to draw and at the same time we make others happy. So…artists, illustrators, creative people young and old who love to draw… will you join us? Everyday we will post one of the shared creations @inspiredbyyourpost.
We are looking forward to be inspired by your posts ;-).
Daantje and Astrid
