This blog post lists 26 of the most talented Jamaican creatives that I follow in 2020 and I believe you should be following as well.

This year I got the opportunity to interact with some of the most unique and talented Jamaican creatives in industries ranging from photography to 3D illustration. I not only felt a sense of national pride seeing my fellow Jamaicans produce such a high calibre of work but a surge of inspiration to keep honing my craft.

I hope this collection of Jamaican creatives serves as inspiration for younger artists that suffer from imposter syndrome and motivate them to produce work that they can be proud of.
