Instagram is still a great place to discover new kawaii artists, makers and shops. Here’s a few cuties I’ve followed recently that I hope to order from soon. They all ship internationally.
Tiny Plant is Kianna, who draws cute and positive plants, animals, food and objects, which you can buy as enamel pins, stickers, washi tape and more. You’ll also find some kawaii fan art including Pikachu, Ghibli and Animal Crossing. Instagram | Shop (USA) | Patreon
You all know what a huge space nerd I am and I want everything in the Spaces Between shop! There’s so many cute and cool enamel pins with glitter and glow in dark details and connecting pieces – perfect for adventurers and dreamers. Instagram | Shop (Singapore)
Shark Cafe promise cute and relatable art and they definitely deliver! There’s plenty sharks and sea creatures but also other animals, food, puns and silliness with most designs available as enamel pins and stickers, plus some keychains and prints. Instagram | Shop (USA)
Food/animal mashups are one of my favourite types of kawaii art and Faith Varvara has plenty to choose from, along with some adorable animal characters. She has a big range of products including stickers, charms, pins, clothing, hats and bags. Instagram | Shop (Canada)
Who have you discovered on Instagram lately? I’d love to know!
