Overview

This book looks at some of the world's best illustrators, providing insight into the generally hidden and personal processes involved in the creation of illustration from concept to finished work.

Covering a wide range of illustration types, the book explores both the conceptual and practical methodologies and demonstrates the diversity of working methods used. Included are design and advertising; adult fiction publishing; decorative illustration and merchandising; editorial and political cartoons; children’s publishing; graphic literature; fashion illustration and journalistic illustration.

This is a broad, comprehensive look at the field of illustration which gives insight into each artist’s approach and identifies what motivates them and inspires the sort of work they do. The information has been compiled from interviews and is not available anywhere else and includes the work of illustrators such as Ronald Searle, Ralph Steadman, Brad Holland and Quentin Blake.

The focus is on artistic excellence which has become commercially successful and will appeal to students, aspiring and practicing illustrators and those professionals who work with illustrators and as a reference book for a broader reading audience.
