Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga and Ice Cube Give Their Artistic Fans Some Love on Instagram

Stars love to see their portraits drawn

Celebrities enjoy a good sketch as much as the rest of us do, it seems. Over the past few months, a number of stars, including Ice Cube, Snoop Dogg, Lady Gaga and Sam Smith have uploaded photos on Instagram of sketches their fans have made for them.

Many of the stars, like Lena Dunham, Drake, Lupita Nyongo, Kim Kardashian and others recognized the sketchers in their captions, gracing some talented artists with a sought-after mention. Stars of the dog variety can be painted, too, and the canine Instagram sensation Tuna gave a bark for his own portrait artist, too.

It’s a fun trend that we hope continues. Check out some particularly great sketches with some notable personages here.
