Yes, but the latest build of Pillow doesn't support Python 2 - I feel
calling it python-pillow would be misleading.

The Python imaging library was replaced by Pillow as far as I can tell,
and seems to have been unmaintained since 2011. Could you give me a link
to the library you're talking about please?

Either way, wxPython specifically needs Pillow. I can also build the
imaging library if you want though.
