30 Amazing Illustrations to Inspire

The following illustrations are some of the most interesting, mind-bending illustrations we’ve found recently. The new ideas and the methods that illustrators use continue to amaze us time and time again. For instance, Paul Alexander Thornton uses ballpoint pens in his compositions which, I can only imagine requires some very steady hands.

Lili Lu’s illustrations of women are not only the work of a master, they’re also quite gorgeous to look at! And Raphael Kirchner’s illustrations are some of the most thoughtful and eye-catching pieces I’ve seen recently. Surely, just looking at these great illustrations which were done by some very talented people will ignite some creative sparks in you!

Remember to support your fellow artists by visiting their portfolios and showing them some love!
