If your comic book knowledge doesn't go beyond Chris Pratt's newly defined abs in Guardians of the Galaxy don't worry. We're here to help. With styles ranging from hilariously absurd to beautiful watercolor panels, here's 10 of our favorite illustrators that will turn your Tumblr feed into the perfect comic strip.
1. Simon Hanselmann
Australian illustrator, Simon Hanselmann is best known for his comic book characters Megg, a depressed witch, and Mogg, her best friend/black cat. They're both huge stoners. Hanselmann's comics can get dark and existential but he's definitely got a wonderfully weird sense of humor. Like, check out this Drake owl.
2. Ellie Andrews
3. Will Laren
Will Laren is known for his hilarious monster comic series. With his offbeat sense of humor, it's hard to tell what the punchline will be.
Chicago-based artist, Ben Marcus makes comics that feel inspired by all things trippy, alien, and David Bowie.
Aidan Koch's comics are minimal watercolor landscapes and abstract vignettes. But even without a narrative, it's easy to get lost in the worlds that Koch creates.
Nicole Ginelli's comics are hybrids of Duggie Field's future aesthetic and nail salon art. We love her use of bright colors, graphic vectors, and 80's inspo.
London-based illustrator Laura Callaghan draws girls that love Wuthering Heights and Frida Kahlo. If they weren't just illustrations, you would want to be BFFs with them. Callaghan's latest comic, First Date -- that recounts the hilarious horrors of online dating -- is a must read.
8. HTML Flowers
Grant Gronewold, aka HTML Flowers, has such a great acid-trip, sketch book style. His Tumblr serves as an invitation into his secret world full of magic and flowers.
9. Sarah McNeil
Sarah McNeil's illustrations are charmingly twee. Her Tumblr, "Secret Pretty Things" is a pastel dreamland. We love her zine Plant Feelings because plants are people too.
10. Ginette Lapalme
