2014’s Biggest Moments Highlighted in Detailed Illustration

To commemorate 2014, both good and bad, Beutler Ink created an amazingly-detailed graphic highlighting some of the most newsworthy things of this year. The Washington, DC-based digital content agency gave a nod to Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel movie poster and cross sectioned it with celebrities, news headlines, and even emojis.

This creative illustration features a lot of entertainment, like Ellen's star-studded Oscar selfie and Kim Kardashian's infamous, Internet-breaking Paper magazine cover. But, it doesn't shy away from 2014's more serious events. Beutler covers the Ebola outbreak and protests for Michael Brown and Eric Garner, too.

The brimming cartoon-style image is a great way to reflect on the year. With so many headlines, tweets, videos, and more, it seems incredible that these things all happened in 365 days. Check out Beutler Ink's blog for a full list of everything included in this illustration.
