For anyone that needs a wee refresher on what illustration is and what illustrators do in the 21st Century, check out this short video, The Art of Illustration from Off Book / PBS Digital Studios.
Luke Frost, Jon Rundall and Therese Vandling make up Heretic – an experimental illustration and print-making studio based in London. The engaging trio share a room in the Space Studios complex, just around the corner from the freshly green London Fields in Hackney. With their original prints and high technical standard, Heretic’s innovative work would be the middle of an intensely bright Venn diagram that blurs the spaces of illustration, design and print-making.
The illustration and graphic arts scene in London appears almost as hectic and diverse as the city itself. Illustrators Illustrated travelled to the UK to visit the 6th incarnation of PICK ME UP, a two-week festival of illustration and graphic arts held in late April and early May. Featuring international illustrators, studios, collectives and galleries and a public programme of talks and presentations, there was a lot to see and do, and now you can read the review!
We’re so excited about our new portrait-chain project! We have invited illustrators previously interviewed by Illustrators Illustrated to create a portrait of a fellow illustrator. Check out Anna Katharina Jansen’s beautiful portrait of Sarah von der Heide!
