Pen and Mouse: Commercial Art and Digital Illustration by Angus Hyland

Illustration has become chic again, gaining new popularity in editorial design, fashion, and advertising. Pen and Mouse features the work of today’s top image-makers, whose craft is considered somewhere between graphic design and fine art and whose tools are increasingly those of the digital medium. This stunning book showcases hundreds of spectacular, groundbreaking illustrations by more than 40 international artists whose work reflects a remarkably diverse range of styles.

In this unique guide, leading graphic artist Angus Hyland discusses the fascinating effect technology has on today’s commercial artists—from artists working primarily by hand to those producing purely digital artwork, as well as artists who produce an alluring hybrid of digital with traditional media. Engaging text reveals each artist’s personal thoughts on the current state of illustration, what inspires them and their art, and their own relationship with cutting-edge electronic versus classic hand-drawn techniques.

Features unique illustrations from such leading artists as:

• John Maeda
