For a long time (whole. months.) I avoided getting on Instagram. Friends, fellow artists, and the Internet—i.e. the fifty million listicles popping up in all my other feeds about the “30 Best Insta This” and “40 Best Insta That”—urged me join. Finally, when fabulous fellow MUGster Mike said he was working on some text/art hybrid pieces and having some success on Instagram and I should check it out, I decided to join the Insta-craze. Instagram turns out to be an awesome platform for creatives, and I decided to write this blog post because I want to share with you Mike’s awesomeness, in particular.
As digital media becomes an ever-growing part of writing, hybrid pieces are gaining traction and Mike is on trend. Here I’ve selected a few of my recent favorites of Mike’s work. Follow him on Instagram @mikey_mandala.
I know, I know. You’re reading this and saying: These are SO COOL. Taylor, thanks so much for sharing this with me! I’m totally going to follow Mike on Instagram. And wait—Tay, aren’t you on Instagram, too?
Well, yes, since you ask… You can follow me @taylorlaurenross.
