Art That’s Cool – Ian Barnard

You can check out his site and work here:


I love these big bold letters that he uses.   I also love his sayings and so again I am pondering the question,”Where do you draw your inspiration from?”

Here is what I have learned.

-passionate about typography and lettering

-creates every weekday

-he sells on Creative Market

-he has a love of community like connecting with other artists

-yes he really goes out and helps youth by talking to them

-he seems an all around humble person and it shows with the messages he delivers in every art piece he creates.


I know that I have shown you artists from across the line but its for two good reasons. You need to tell your story as an artist and that means telling your story-your values-your hope-dreams-purpose and fill in the blank.

Oh and you have to practice and draw inspiration from the world around you. Doing what you love is a fabulous way to start.

I have all these stories and use color, texture and nature to bring them to life. My favorite supplies are watercolor, acrylic, and fun tools. I just want to create.
