A brand new membership for artists and illustrators curated by Inkygoodness
You’re invited to join our brand new membership community for artists and illustrators: Inkygoodness Collective (@inkygoodnesscollective)
Earlier this year we invited 60 artists and illustrators inside the community, giving them a sneak peak at Inkygoodness Collective to check it out and the feedback has been brilliant. Since then our community has more than doubled on an invitation-only basis, and we’re excited to announce that applications are now open for September 2023.

Who we are
Inkygoodness is a global community focused on connecting, inspiring and developing artists and creative businesses. Founded by Lisa Hassell in 2010, Inkygoodness started as a series of exhibitions and events before launching an online blog. Following a relaunch in April 2020, Inkygoodness pivoted into mentoring; offering provide portfolio crits, workshops and a group coaching programme.
Over the last 12 months their Instagram community has more than doubled to 40k with Inkygoodness hosting regular IGTV interviews with leading creatives and adding to their course offering with the launch of Illustrated Merchandise – a six-week course teaching artists how to diversify their income through making and selling illustrated products. Our 4th and final run of this best selling course will run in May 2023.
With a focus on personal and professional development for artists and illustrators, Inkygoodness is committed to engaging with emerging talent, sharing knowledge, offering support and cultivating a creative community for artists and illustrators to connect and thrive.
