“Altpick Members’ 2020:: A Year In Review” Final Installment

In our 3rd and final installment of “Altpick Members’ 2020::A Year in Review” post, we continue to take a look at the creative work our members produced between September – December of 2020.  Over the past year and continuing into this year, as we know, the world has been dealing with difficult situations both in personal health and in business.  As difficult as it is, it is also worth highlighting how our members have managed to find creative and new ways to use their talents.  For example, take a look at photographers Keith Barraclough’s “Virtual Shoots”; George Kamper’s “Bubble Boy” series, Kent Miller’s “Pandemic Portrait Portraits”  and Kevin Steele’s “Life on Pause”. In addition, illustrators Aaron Meshon’s “Back to School” series and James Benn’s  “Eat Out to Help Out” (one in his pandemic series), just to mention a few. As you will see below the photographers, illustrators, graphic designers, and animators have kept busy producing amazing work whether it was for an assignment or personal projects.  We would also like to congratulate our members and the art directors, creative directors, and creatives working in the industry who are involved in hiring creative talents for a job well done during these crazy times!


Thank you for visiting!  To see more of the artists’ work, please go to Altpick.com.
