Inkygoodness Collective

A brand new membership for artists and illustrators curated by Inkygoodness is launching Spring 2022.

Our brand new membership community for artists and illustrators the Inkygoodness Collective (@inkygoodnesscollective) is currently in beta stage ahead of our official launch in 2022.

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 we’ve invited further artists by invitation-only. We’re now preparing to open our doors to the wider community on an application basis later this year and we can’t wait to get you involved!

Why Do I Need to Apply?

We’re passionate about cultivating a community of likeminded creatives who are committed to forging a career in commercial illustration. We aim to be as inclusive as possible, whilst also ensuring we stay true to our values and our mission to support emerging and practising creatives on their career journey.

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 Lisa hosting regular IGTV interviews with leading creatives and adding to their course offering in 2021 with the launch of Illustrated Merchandise – a six week course teaching artists how to diversify their income through making and selling illustrated products.

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.
