Artists Share Their Recent Illustrations That They're Most Proud Of—And We Can Certainly See Why 😮

It's exceedingly difficult to make a living as an artist.

On average, even the most successful visual artists make around $91,000 a year, lower than entry level jobs in some other high-profile industries such as engineering and coding.

Artists are also more prone to mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety, and since art come from oneself, that can make working and producing work that the artist is proud of very difficult.

Twitter user @Handsome-Frank decided to take some initiative and get artists feeling proud of their work again:

The results have been astounding.

Some were holiday themed:


Some were simple:

Some told lushly told stories:

Some were urban:

Some were abstract:

All of them told us a little bit more about who each artist was as an individual.

The instigator, Handsome Frank, is an illustration agency representing contemporary visual artists around the UK.

From the website:

"Like all the best ideas, Handsome Frank started with a conversation in the pub. We now represent 35 illustrators, spread across five continents and we've worked with some of the biggest brands and agencies in the world.
Despite our growth over the years, we're great believers in keeping things personal. We pride ourselves on building close relationships with our artists and we feel this benefits their creative output and collaborations with clients. Nothing pleases us more than matching the right artist with the right project."

The name came from co-founders Jon and Tom's grandfather Frank.

The agency currently has 38 artists on its roster.
