- Full Description
This sumptuous art quarterly from England presents a long cover feature on James Gurney, famous for Dinotopia and much more; Erik Kriek's Goth rock vibe; the illustrator known as JOB, whose illustrated French books were beautiful, and nearly graphic novels in style; and Arturo Del Castillo: 12 wonderful pages of all-original artwork to "The King's Musketeer," a superb strip reminiscent of Fortunino Matania and Jose Salinas (Cisco Kid), first published in the 1950s in England in the British magazines Film Fun and Lion.
Kriek is a contemporary Dutch artist who reminds us of American low-brow artists, using classic pop culture imagery, hard-edged girls, and movie and rock concert poster style in his attractive and unusual work.
We are treated to a wide variety of Gurney's work, including many pieces and projects we've never seen before. Gurney has also appeared for years in the annual Spectrum; the cover of this issue was also the cover of an early Spectrum.
More like a book than a magazine, illustrators is the art quarterly devoted to the finest illustration art ever published. It guides you through the stories behind the artists and their art, with features written by some of the leading authorities on this important art form.
As well as building into an indispensable reference library, illustrators gives readers an insight into the creative process, from idea to sketch to painting, and from painting to the image seen by millions. Truly fabulous artwork abounds in every issue, much of the art taken from scans of the original work.
