Geffen Refaeli is a well known illustrator who created the dailydoodlegram. With over 88,000 followers on instragram, she has influenced many artists. She takes inspiration from the explore page on instagram but her work remains distinct to her style.
“Every day i go through pictures on my instagram and choose a few that were taken that day and inspire me.
I create a new drawing and story based on different elements, pieces, and characters from those photos. i am trying to create a drawing that is personal and represents a specific moment and state of mind i experience, like a daily abstract journal.
Sometimes I would suddenly have an idea or thought when i see an image and it connects in my mind to something else i saw that day, and other times in the end of the day i sit and look at all the photos side by side and try to find my story. i try to understand the unseen link between my choices or the subject and feeling that guided me. it can be very intuitive and quick or a very deliberate and long thinking process.”
