Making Great Illustration

Making Great Illustration looks at some of the world’s best illustrators, offering information from exclusive face to face interviews, with images of work and portrait and studio photographs, it gives a view into the creation of illustration from concept to finished work. The blog shares our travels around the world to interview the thirty illustrators featured.

Published in Britain in September 2011 (USA in November), the book has ten sections, covering a wide range of illustrative practice from design and advertising, political illustration, children’s books, surface pattern and fashion illustration through to graphic novels and reportage illustration, showcasing many of the top artists in each field.
