Best Instagram Accounts to Follow for Architectural Sketching

The accounts that I've included here are all spectacularly good at "architectural" sketches - which is an important distinction to make. I follow a lot of sketching accounts, probably half of which are anime-related. You can find all sorts so tips, techniques, and inspiration from a myriad of sketching sources but I wanted to focus on people who actually drew the sort of sketches that I want to draw - buildings and street scenes. I will also acknowledge upfront that while this collection of individuals is worthy of attention and admiration, there are undoubtedly hundreds, if not thousands more that we all should be paying attention to.

Sketching Details

It’s not a secret – or at least it shouldn’t be much of one. Architects should be on Instagram and I would like for them to post pictures of what they do during the day. There is so much good stuff out there that people are doing and few people know anything about it. I am making it my personal mission to singlehandedly change this by proselytizing the benefits of sharing information in a medium that is readily available to the masses.

Case in point … on my own Instagram account, I share a fair amount of sketches and details, all sorts of ideas that I am working through. I submit as exhibit 1 and 2, some random details that I sketched up and published on Instagram for all the world to see:
