Dreams for a better 2021

As we enter the last few months of 2020, there is an opportunity to hope for a better 2021. We asked this group of creative women – from nine countries – to do just that. What follows are their illustrated dreams for the next year.

While the participants did not see each other’s work before publication, several common themes emerge. On the eve of the U.S. election, some reference political change, others are focused on personal growth, family and friends. We encourage you to take time to study these illustrations carefully. Some surprises and subversions are in the details.

Finally, we ask you, our readers, to imagine what you would illustrate if given this challenge.

We wish you happy, healthy holidays and hope to see you again early next year.
