Making the selections for a book like 100 Illustrators (published by Taschen) is an exercise on many levels. You want to feature the work of the artists you not just like, but have also followed for years, but you also need to think about each one’s contribution to the field of illustration: who they inspire, their unmistakable style, and the bulk of work they have produced and continue to make. It’s a lot to take into consideration. Over the last seven years, we have profiled over 700 illustrators for the Illustration Now! series, as well as collaborated on books covering portrait and fashion illustration. But recently, we decided it was time to whittle down the list and create the most important book that’s been produced in the field in decades. It is not a showcase. It is an art book about the art of illustration.
The family of the late Dick Tracy cartoonist Chester Gould has donated a substantial collection of original Dick Tracy comic strips and related materials to The Ohio State University Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum (BICLM). Gould wrote and drew Dick Tracy, one of the most popular and successful newspaper comic strips of all time, from 1931 until his retirement in 1977.
