9 Women illustrators to follow on Dribbble

When thinking of illustration as an art form, there’s a good chance everyone has a different visual in their head. That’s likely because nowadays, illustration takes so many different forms and ranges in all kinds of styles. Use of mediums can range from digital, to painting, to sketching and styles can vary anywhere from geometric, to hand-drawn, or even a mix of multiple.

Today we’ve got a handful of talented women illustrators to show off, dabbling in all kinds of different illustration styles. These illustrators particularly caught our eye because of their unique approaches to their craft and of course, their thoughtful choices in subjects.
