It’s every artist dream to become popular enough to be able to make a living from their work. Also, millions of fans around the world are not the worst thing to have. With the power of internet, it’s easier than ever to reach the audience, but it still requires talent, creativity and plenty of work. Let’s see some of the brightest examples of the artists who used this combo to skyrocket their careers.

The American artist became wildly popular for his photos of toys. Those who’ve seen his work like to say his photos come with a soul.

And then there’s the tiny details that’ll likely go unnoticed, like the tiny moving drip under the bottom of the glass💧// Animated with @plotagraphpro #justanothertoygroup #toyboners #toycrewbuddies #pixar #jj_toys #toyartistry #toyplanet #toptoyphotos #toystory #toyunion #toystory #toyspotcollector #disney #toysyn #toyrevolution #toystory #epictoyart #spiderholster #lowepro #lpstorytellers #manfrotto #meandmymanfrotto @mottpe @simplycooldesign @plotagraphpro @graphicoozane @photoshop_creative @art_collective @culturacolectiva @loweprobags @manfrottoimaginemore @spiderholster @wacom #plotagraph #photoshop_creative #simplycooldesign #graphicoozane #artcollective #spiderholster #simplycooldesign @mottpe @simplycooldesign @plotagraphpro @photoshop_creative @art_collective #graphicroozane @culturacolectiva @loweprobags @manfrottoimaginemore @spiderholster @graphicoozane @wacom #plotagraph #lowepro #lpstorytellers #manfrotto #meandmymanfrotto #splash

Geert Weegen

Geert uses his phone to take pictures of wild squirrels and edits the photos later at home. He’s absolutely in love with these animals and we’re in love with his work.

Cassie Swirls

This child artist loves painting galaxies. As much as her talent is impressive, we’re even more impressed by the fact that this kid donated $750 she earned from selling her art to charity.

Karl Fitzgerald

Karl’s drawings have many admirers. His style is realistic and a bit scary, so it may not be for everyone, but there are more than enough people out there who appreciate it.
