ILLUSTRATION NOW! (25 ANIVERSARIO)
"Illustration Now! may be aimed at people who commission illustrations, but it is also a treat for anyone who simply likes graphic art. Sink into your favourite armchair and let your mind wander across continents." - Illustration Magazine, London
From magazines and newspapers to ads, websites, album covers, and even mobile phone wallpaper, illustration is a crucial element in visual communication today. With unlimited creative possibilities, illustration is as unbound as imagination itself; whether it's a simple pencil drawing, an ornate airbrushed painting, or a computer-generated image, an illustration speaks the international language of ideas.
This guide showcases 96 of today's best commercial and editorial illustrators from 13 countries; each entry highlights examples of recent work and includes the artist's contact information, favorite media, awards, clients, and work philosophy. Look no further for what works and who's who in the world of illustration: it's all here.
