Some of my favourite illustrators can be found in one book, and that is – ‘Ilusive’ – Contemporary Illustration Part 3.
The whole series of books is really high quality. I only own this one out of the series and it’s definitely a favourite, filled with gorgeous drawings and work by over 200 artists established or up and coming, it also includes interviews and high quality colour images of their work.
Some of the artists whose work stand out for me are Swedish born illustrator Petra Borner
Joe McLaren for his beautiful book covers and moody drawings
and Gabriel Moreno whose interview was included in this book. He has since been asked to create a piece for the cover of Illusive Part 4. The detail in his work just astounds me.
