Published by

From digital to 3D, editorial and packaging, a collection of the best and most inspiring illustrations from last year.

Nothing like a good year stuck at home to get you inspired. Right? If you’re like me, by now you have realised that being unable to see the world and being stuck in your own bubble is not exactly good fuel for your creative juices.

Still, 2020 was a great year for illustration. If you’re looking for some inspiration to get you through yet one more lockdown, look no further – we have collected the top examples of illustrations from the Creativepool community below.

The best illustrations (and illustrators) to fuel your inspiration

The list below does not exclusively include personal projects or fine art illustrations. You’ll find a good blend of commercial projects, editorial projects, packaging, bottle labels, 3D works and more for all your illustration needs.
