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 2021, Inkygoodness pivoted into mentoring; offering provide portfolio crits, workshops and a group coaching programme.

Over the last 2 years our Instagram community has more than doubled to 69k with Lisa Hassell, founder of Inkygoodness hosting regular IGTV interviews with leading creatives and adding to their course offering with the launch of our flagship programme Make Your Mark in 2022; a 12-week intensive programme designed to kickstart your illustration career.

With support from her co-hosts, Lisa continues to deliver outstanding content, masterclasses and creative challenges to support illustrators navigate their careers in the creative industry.

Make Your Mark returned in June 2024 as a new six month bootcamp offering industry mentoring, creative briefs, masterclasses, portfolio development and much much more!

Applications for this programme have now closed – however if you’d like the opportunity to join us for our next programme in Septeber 2024, drop your details below and we will be in touch when we launch:
