Here we present to you a very interesting collection of vector illustrations called “Grotesques & Creatures”.

In art, a ‘grotesque’ represents an ornament consisting of unusual or fantastic figures around which various forms are drawn typical of ornament drawing. The word ‘creature’ is used to indicate a form of life that is fictional and unusual. Based on the previous two definitions, you can conclude that we have created this category of vectors to group in it all the designs, patterns and ornaments showing various mythological creatures, humans and animals depicted in a strange, fantastic, mysterious, and even disgusting way. Take a look at the vector illustrations that we have offered here, and you will know what we mean. By the way, grotesques are a very interesting type of decoration, and if you are interested in unusual things, we recommend that you search for additional information about them.
