100 Illustrators

100 Illustrators 01

In 100 Illustrators, Steven Heller and Julius Wiedemann offer a selection work from a wide variety of contemporary artists previously featured in TASCHEN’s successful series Illustration Now! It’s a sumptuous double-volume, hardback coffee table book containing profiles of artists ranging from the well-established to those just making their mark in the industry. And while I usually prefer to read individual books on a particular artist, this was an experience that reminded me of those great old industry annuals (such as the heavyweight Contact Creative books) with which I often lost hours in admiration for all the outstanding work.

Whatever your preference, you’ll find it within these two volumes, and highlights for me include Tavis Coburn‘s energetic and comic book influenced F1 illustrations, Nigel Buchanan’s stylised portraits and poster work, and Yury Ustsinau’s disturbingly gothic, cartoon nightmares. Besides from offering countless amounts of eye-candy to enjoy, it’s a book that also portrays a healthy commercial art industry (a welcome change to the usual doom and gloom) and offers not only a snapshot of today, but a positive and encouraging look to the future.
