Making Great Illustration looks at the world's best illustrators, and with exclusive interviews, images of their superb artwork and specially commissioned photographs of the artists and their studios, it gives a fascinating insight into the unique perspective and artwork of each artist. The book gives an overview of the creation of some of the world's great illustration from concept to finished artwork, covering a wide range of illustrative practice from children's publishing, design and advertising, political illustration, surface pattern and fashion illustration through to graphic novels and topographical illustration, showcasing many of the top artists in each field including Quentin Blake, Dave McKean, Hvass&Hannibal, David Downton, Laura Carlin, Kitty Crowther and Oliver Jeffers. Making Great Illustration demonstrates the diversity of working methods used, and gives a rare insight into the individual approaches and artwork of each artist. Chapters are introduced by agents and clients within each field, offering the buyer's perspective on illustration from organisations such as SAKs (USA), The Times (UK) and Musees des Arts decoratifs (France). The result is a broad look at the field of illustration internationally, providing an engrossing and inspiring read for illustrators, designers and students at every level and a wide ranging reference book for those interested in contemporary image making.
